Jessica Simpson is no longer a country singer. Which might raise the question…. was she ever? But, that’s a debate for another time. As for right now, new is that she’s no longer with Sony Nashville. I’m very confused about all this – but apparently a spokesperson for Jessica told FOX News that “Jessica is and has always been an Epic artist. She was on loan to Sony Nashville for her country album. She continues to be on Epic’s label.”
Why does that strike me as unusual? Do other artists do that, and I just wasn’t aware of it? Is it like … “I think I’ll try country for a while, find me a temporary label.” I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see what she releases next. I assume there’s a pop album in her future, but who knows. (By the way, is she still hanging out with that football player?)
Jessica’s information (including her artist bio and page) is no longer available on Columbia Nashville or Sony Nashville web sites. And a report on FOXNews.com says there have been “rumors flying for months that Joe Galante, the head of Sony BMG Nashville was fed up with Simpson forgetting her lyrics and crying on stage during her tour with Rascal Flatts.”
The Cleveland Leader said (and I love this line)… “Jessica Simpson’s country music experiment appears to have been an epic failure, as word now comes that she has been dropped by her record label.”
She has shows scheduled on her web site. One on May 9, in Dixon, Calif., that’s the Dixon May Fair. Then there’s SeaWorld of Texas in San Antonio on May 9…. then nothing for a while – quite a while. She has Sept. 25 and 26 scheduled for La Auberge de Lac Hotel and Casino in Lake Charles, La.
I don’t know if anyone watched the television show on April 1, 2009, called “I Get That a Lot.” But what they did was take famous people, like Jessica Simpson, and put them in every day jobs – and when someone would say, ‘”You look like….”, the celebrity would say, “I get that a lot.” So here’s Jessica’s clip from “I Get That A Lot,” where she was a computer tech, recognized by some customers.
The show (I Get That A Lot) included Mario Lopez as a hot dog vendor, LeAnn Rimes as a waitress, and Heidi Klum as a pizza girl, just to name a few. If you didn’t see it, you might want to check out YouTube and look at some of the clips. Some were really good.
I have to get to work. I’ll talk to you all later. Have a great day!
