On The Road With John Mayer, Jessica Simpson Finds Time to Shop

02/21/2007 at 04:42 PM ET

While traveling on the tour bus with boyfriend John Mayer, Jessica Simpson may be living the life of the rock n’ roll girlfriend, but that doesn’t stop her from indulging herself in a little luxe shopping. While in Chicago yesterday, Jessica killed time before John’s concert by hitting local fave Jake. Jessica told a store clerk that John had actually pointed her to the store — after Googling her favorite brands and learning they were sold there! Jessica picked up some cozy cashmere pieces from Lutz & Patmos, including the Warhol Tunic and the Bourgeois Cardigan. She also nabbed a Vanessa Penna Obi (that she wore out of the store), Margiela Leggings, a McQ V-Neck Sweater, a Barbara Bui Sweater, Malin + Goetz Lip Balm, and a Richard Chai jacket. But always thinking of her sweetheart, she picked up an Adam Kimmel pocket front shirt for John. Awwww.

This “pseudo-relationship” is a publicity driven revenge against Nick Lachey masterminded by Joe Simpson.

I, too, think they make an odd couple. They seem to have incredibly different priorities. He’s a serious artist and Jessica is more… high maintenance? Jessica is a lovely girl, but she doesn’t seem quite… grown up? I don’t know; perhaps that’s just the way she behaves in public because it sells. If I were in a new city, I would probably want to visit landmarks and museums instead of retail stores, and I’d be insulted if my significant other googled shopping opportunities for me! Seems kinda vapid. Sweet, but vapid. According to psychologists and organization experts, people who shop excessively are trying to make up for something they feel they are lacking. Something similar was on Oprah a few weeks ago. As for John… I think he was attractive around the time his first album came out, but I’m sorry to say that now I think he looks almost deranged. Maybe it’s the longer hair. I think they’re great individually, but they make quite a weird couple. I’m not sure how long it will last. It’s probably freaky to have strangers discussing your romantic choices, but I guess that’s the price you pay for making millions off of the public’s interest in you.

I think Jessica & John are a great couple! Take a look at their faces – they look a lot alike. They have the same jaw line and big brown eyes. The pouty lips… and now the brown hair. couples that look alike are highly attracted to one another. Aside from the physical likeness, I really like both of them and hope they stay together.

a day of shopping in jessica simpson’s world must be nice to have money and buy this and that for herself and feel guilt free.

I agree that they seem like an odd couple. I also agree that he isn’t good looking and desperately needs a hair cut. However, has anyone considered that maybe he is a nice person and is treating her well? I mean, looks aren’t everything. She had looks in her last man (Nick), so maybe she has decided to go for something different this time around. I don’t think John is ugly, but rather, just average-looking (but his hair makes him look worse). But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and she obviously finds him attractive (either inside or out….or both), and that’s all that matters since SHE is the one who is with him.

Jake is a great shop- pricy but trendy.

Chicago rocks!

Until you have seen John live, don’t talk down about him. He is wonderful, amazing, talented, sexy, and just great. I love him and Jessica and I hope they are both happy together. If it works out, it works out. I mean, who are we to say they don’t “mesh” well? Seriously people…

i was actually at that concert that they were talking about.
i’ve loved john mayer for years-and i’ve never thought him to be highly attractive, yet there is something about it that i love =D
jessica on the other hand, not so much
i just don’t see them together
and i remember…at the concert john was being nice and so he made all the people put their signs down, but not until he responded to all of them
like one of them was marry me and he said sorry, but it’s illegal
and another one asked for him to get naked, and he said sorry but i’m going to keep my clothes on
and the girl behind me (btw…tenth row floor seats, nice right?!) was like dammit, i wish i brought a poster that said WHERE’S JESSICA?!
thought it was funny/cute…

Tonyo Rourke on

Um, okay. Who says Jon Mayer is not attractive? And anyway, the REAL mismatch is in I.Q.!!

Precious Murray on

I can not believe John would stoop to the level of Jessica Simpson… though she seems nice, and we know she is beautiful… there is more to a person than beauty and charm… John could do much better than a washed-up, ditz who lacks the level of intelligence that he has. Also, maybe he should be with a singer/musician who actually writes their music and who has composed more than 7 songs in their life!! Possibly a nice young lady who is in music it for the music… not the money!!!

But then again… even the best of us can be blinded by love.
