Jessica Simpson has been in love with a boy-bander, a singer and a sports star, but ask the country singer what she’s learned from her exes, and she has a one-word answer: “Nothing.”
A wiser, savvier Jessica — and OK! magazine’s current cover girl — has opened up about her body, nudity and life after Nick Lachey, John Mayer and Tony Romo.
But the 29-year-old insists that none of her relationships ended bitterly, and she’s even friends with Tony, even though he dumped her the day before her birthday.
“I talked to Tony today,” she told Allure magazine [via the New York Daily News]. “I’m still a fan [of the Dallas Cowboys]. I’m a huge fan. I wear my gear, and I cheer Tony on.”
Jessica, who was the subject of John Mayer’s graphic comments about their sex life last week, puts some rumors to rest about their liaison.
“He didn’t make me go brunette,” she says of the darker hairdo she sported in 2006 and 2007. “John doesn’t get credit for making me brunette. He’d like to think so, but he doesn’t deserve the credit.”
Currently single, the singer — whose new VH1 show, Price of Beauty, debuts in March — denies she’s dating Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan, saying, “I’m on my own, and it’s nice.”
So who is Jessica’s ideal man? “It will show you the colors of my character, the person that I fall in love with next,” she explains. “I don’t even have a type! I don’t have a physical type. I have an emotional type.”
Jessica discussed the storm of abuse she endured after wearing a pair of tight “mom jeans” during a 2009 concert. “I would not wish on my worst enemy what I went through,” she says.
“When I walk through an airport and people go, ‘You’re not fat!’ I’m like, ‘Thanks. Thanks. That’s great. Good to know I’m not fat today. Thank you!’”
She calls America’s obsession with weight “disgusting.” The Texan says, “My job is to be creative. And I’m not weighing in for anybody.”
But despite her growing body confidence, she draws the line at taking her clothes off for a role. “I will never do nudity,” she declares. “I don’t care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know.
“I don’t care if I frickin’ could get an Oscar for it, I’m not going to do it. Those accolades mean nothing to me. I don’t think people deserve to see what’s under my clothing. That’s only for my next husband.”
Now nearing the age of 30, Jessica finds herself less sure of her future than she once was.
“I just kind of thought I had it figured out: I’m going to be this great pop star, have my songs on the radio, be married, and have babies,” she said.
“But things can be taken away from you. A song can not be played on the radio. An album can not work.”
