Nothing but a t-shirt on.....

First off, I just wanted to thank you all so much for the amazing comments on Wednesday' post. I was so overwhelmed by all the love. Every time I checked my email there was another sweet comment that left a huge smile on my face and warm fuzzies in my heart!

Secondly, I thought it was time to fill you all in…..time you knew that…..

I am an explosive Jessica Simpson Fan
10_large
And not just a “Oh  newlyweds was a funny show” fan
I'm a memorabilia collecting, every-song-memorized, autograph-purchasing, tivo-every-interview fan.

I had this poster hanging in my bedroom throughout college and maybe definitely in my laundry room in my grown-up apartment

I enlisted all my friends to sign up for basically a weekly spam email so I had the chance to win a contest to meet her

I drug my sister 2 hours away in a monsoon to see her in concert (yes, it was magical)


And then made her stand in line with me for 30 minutes to get this amazing t-shirt

I totally think this says “subtle fan”…… right?

I splurged on this little number fully convinced that I needed an $80 smurf blue sweatsuit with ice cream appliqu├ęs on it.


And I bust my Newlyweds DVD's whenever I’m sick of watching Real-Housewives-From-Every-City-In-The-Nation

I secretly wish they'd get back together....ssshhhhh
I basically had my wedding planned out to look like exactly like hers.....and this might be one of the only books I've ever read cover to cover

I’m never without one of her cds in my car.....and my ipod is about 75% JSimps.

And I know, I know……she has a pervert dad who can’t stop talking about her boobs, she wore really bad mom jeans once and she is quite possibly the worst actress on the planet.

But I love her.
Her music. Her style. Her hilarious personality.

I am a J-Simps  Fan for Life!

So now I’m dying to know……who is the one artist you will never stop loving?!

Some tunes for your Friday....my fav!!
XO, A

i actually love jessica simpson. i think she is beautiful, i loved her show and I want her hair. have a good weekend! (Oh and he's not an artist but I am a huge fan of ben stiller - totally not as attractive as jessica simpson, but am a loyal fan of him and would probably marry him - that is of course if I wasn't already married.)

FourJedis said...

I find Jessica Simpson very amusing, in a good way. I really, really loved NSYNC in college (I was the OLDEST person at their concert, who was not there to accompany a minor). And I really, really love Justin Timberlake and Usher... like LOVE them... and sadly, this 33 year old has Bieber fever.

Stephanie said...

I am a big JS fan, too, and secretly wish for a Nick/Jessica reunion! My other celeb obsession has to be Britney Spears. Her songs (old and new) are the best to jam out to in your car....or while cleaning the house....

Whitney @ justacountry-girl said...

I had the same love for Nsync years ago. Loved me some J. Timberlake. I always liked Jessica. I think she is sooo gorgeous. I loved her and NIck and hated they divorced. Newlyweds was the bomb!

Tickled Pink said...

I love her too. Especially when she was with Nick. They were perfect and sooo normal!

Bethany said...

I have never been a JS fan... I think she is beautiful and her music is def fun to sing along to.. but she just isn't my cup of tea. I would have to say BSpears all the way. I LOVE her and all her wild antics. PLUS we have the same initials AND I am totally naming my first born Shawn Preston. [honest this was an accident and her son's name is SEAN.. but my hubby is Shawn and Preston is my grandma's maiden name..] How ironic right?

Faith said...

i love Jess too. i think she is pretty awesome and i also secretly wish that she and Nick would get back together.

but i remember being so addicting to her show ... i watched it non-stop. i actually miss it.

Ashley said...

I have always liked Jessica Simpson too! I secretly pull her cd out in the car and belt it out when alone!!

Jenny said...

I could NEVER stop loving Britney. I know she lip synchs. I know she went crazy, but man....I love the girl. Simply because I love that she's real. VERY real. lol TOO real for a celeb perhaps, but I appreciate that. :)

J and A said...

I do love her too. She has the best clothes - most of the time. I have a slight obsession with T-swift. I promise I am not 12 but her music puts me in the best mood and I do love her dresses and hair. :)

P!nky said...

Ohhhhhhhhh Smashtastic, I was a HUGE JSimpson fan! She was my favorite pop diva out there. I loved her morals and non slizzy attitude (unlike britbrit and xtina). When she and Nick got married I too planned my wedding to look like hers, she has such great taste.

But when she DIVORCED nick and sent him out like trash I lost all respect. She got too big for her britches and became just like the other divas out there. I still love her music (although the country, not so much) and think she has one of the best voices out there (when it's not wispy!).

When she gets back together with Nick I'm back in her corner. But I respect your obsession, it is a good one!

Courtney said...

Oh you are my new bff. I love her! I own every season of newlyweds and life will be complete when those two realize they made a big mistake and get back together. I remember when that announced their divorce i got the "oh my gosh, are you ok?" text from my best friend haha!And now I want to go watch Newlyweds.

Ashley said...

Jessica Simpson is great - her clothes and shoes are amazing!

Carrie Underwood can do NO wrong in my eyes. Every time she comes to Winnipeg, it's no question I have to go to her concert!

Ali said...

I love her too & Newlyweds was definitely one of my favorites ever. Better that you wanted the sweatsuit because I've wanted the Louis Vuitton ever since Newlyweds. Nick Lachey though, is like my DREAM man. I love him. I kind of like Vanessa & Nick (gasp!) I know. And I cant wait to see Jessica's baby!

Sarah said...

I knew you were obsessed when you left a comment on my blog telling me to cut my hair like her!! haha but seriously, I've never seen an episode of the newlyweds....so I may need to make that happen.

KRISTIN said...

LOVE THIS! Your Jessica is like my Britney! I am a mess when it comes to Brit Brit!

Joe + Tara said...

You make me laugh...I love that you're still so obsessed with her. :) Your post makes me want to watch Newlyweds ASAP!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

i thought this post was way awesome! i am no where near being a j.simpson fan (except for her first album and love "with you") but i was thoroughly entertained by this.

and that poster def belongs not only in my laundry room but where i work out. might need to print it out and put in front of me for motivation. those legs - i die.

jayme said...

don't be too jealous BUT... when i met 98 degrees, it was before jsimp was really that famous and i met her too, backstage passes and autographs and everything.

this happened:
nick lachey: (signing my photo) hi! what's your name?
me: THANK YOU (intense shaking and crying and freaking out)

so now nick thinks my name is thank you. :)

i'll share my autograph with you. she's amazing. my favorite people include jsimp, dolly parton, and shania twain.

xo

Shayla Y.F.F. said...

Justin Timberlake, for sure. i'm in love so Jessica Biel better watch her back! I also love Jessica Simpson but more so for her awesome accessories line and fashion sense (minus the mom jean incident...we all make mistakes). Have a good weekend!

Nuha said...

oh my god..i used to have the same obsession with Britney Spears, but thankfully I grew out of it lol but the one that i didn't grow out of and never will ( i refuse to) is the Spice Girls. I rock out to their cd in my car still. Girl Power foreva!

( i can't believe i just said that)

Melanie said...

Reese Witherspoon

Melanie said...

I guess you meant singer? That I do not know.

Britt said...

I think she is adorable. She is beautiful, caring, real and a smart business woman. I totally loved me some JS back in the day. Her book, I Do, is on my bookshelf right now. I wish her and Nick would get back together already {never going to happen} :(

Lizzy said...

I love J.Simp! Her shoe line is awesome, and so is her music! I miss the older her though, the one where she was not fat but not super skinny. I think she's secretly pregnant with Nick's baby too. How awesome would that be!?

Alyssa said...

I saw the title of this post and freaked out a little! I have all the seasons of Newlyweds and watch them...let's just say, a lot! I loved them together!

Sami said...

I love this! I think she is so gorgeous no matter what anyone says! I wouldn't mind looking like her haha. MY obsession with a celebrity is and always will be Gavin DeGraw. I own like 4 t-shirts and a hoodie. I have a collage of concert tickets, pictures, and memorabilia. It's a little crazy. Here's my blog post about it http://samisshenanigans.blogspot.com/2011/12/its-so-nice-to-meet-you-can-we-sit-and.html
Have a good weekend :)

Jenna said...

Haha, nothing wrong with J Simps!

My celeb that I'll never get over is Leonardo DiCaprio, truth be told I just never got over Titanic. Somehow I still secretly hope that we will wind up together one day, okay, that's taking it a bit far, but still ;)

sarah@totalbassetcase.com said...

With You may be quite possibly one of the best songs ever. Done and done.

Erin said...

LOL- too funny! You are a super fan fo sho! ;) Gotta admit-- I'm a little Michael Jackson obsessed... ever since my mom would crank up his RECORDS while she cleaned the house when I was kid. I own every CD of his now, movies, documentaries, coffee table books, I dressed as him for Halloween one year.... It's a bit ridiculous :)

Bre said...

One time, back in the day, she and Nick came to a local club and I won tickets to go. It was pretty cool to be at such an intimate event. After the show I proceeded to get tanked and had one of the worst hangovers of my lifetime the next day. Adios motherfuckers...damn it. I also had the pleasure of meeting her during a meet and greet before one of those ____fests from the local radio station where they have a bunch of acts at once. Mandy Moore was there too. But, to answer your question, Britney is that girl for me. Sigh.....

mollymeetschicago said...

You know... I don't think i'll ever NOT purchase a CD that Hanson puts out. I own all of them and proudly listened to them with my windows down and volume up (when i had a car). There is no shame!!

Tabitha Mahoney said...

Umm I love her, all of her. Great post.


Happy weekend.

Rissy said...

OH. MY. GOSH!

SERIOUSLY just got my season 2 and 3 dvds in the mall and counted the seconds down at work until I could come home to watch... and just remembered how much I love that song because they played it on the show!

CMae said...

I actually owned all her DVD Newlyweds but when they divorced, I donated them to goodwill. I felt GUILTY for watching the show since it was partly how they fell apart (according to Nick anyway)

{av} | {long distance loving} said...

ok, so I'm embarrassed to admit my celebrity: John Mayer. hahahahahaha. I definitely think that counts as worse that JSimps, though in a weird twist of fate, didn't they date for a hot second?! haha. Jessica always makes me smile--which is more than I can say for most celebrities, so I'll count her in my "like" column. hope you have a happy Sunday, my dear! xoxo {av}

Whitney said...

oh man. i love her too! i had the poster in college, and of course have the newlyweds dvds!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Loved reading this! I never really knew much about Jessica Simpson, but I really liked some adventure show she was in. I can't remember what it was called, but she would travel around to different countries and learn about what other cultures considered to be beautiful. It was really pretty cool. :)

Sara Louise said...

Jessica Simpson is pretty cute and I'll admit it, I'm a fan. I found her so adorable on The Newlyweds that there was no way I could not be :-)

SweetCaroline said...

Jessica Simpson is great!!

Now the band i will ALWAYS be a fan of dates me back to freshman year of highschool: the Jonas Brothers. I don't care how dumb people think they are or whatever. I LOVE THEM. besides, they are HANDSOME.

OH OH. and those beautiful boys from big time rush. I SWOON.

Amanda Julia said...

I smiled the whole time i read this post. I had a roommate in college who was obsessed (although not to the same level as you :)) with JSimp and we used to watch Newlyweds all the time. She was so funny and goofy and real, with her farting and blonde moments. I agree she is a bad actress, but has found her niche in the fashion world, i love all of her clothes and shoes. keep these posts coming :)

Katie said...

You know, I've never been a huge fan of her music but I think she is beautiful and she makes me laugh. Plus Newlyweds was such a great show. Oh and I do like her song "Public Affair."

True fact: I've never been to a concert before. Ever. Of anyone.

Katie said...

Oh and is that Shontelle's "T-Shirt" lyrics in the title? <3 that song
