Jessica Simpson Is Done Trying To Look Like 'The Perfect Barbie Type'

Jessica Simpson‘s fluctuating weight never ceases to make headlines, but for once, the blonde bombshell isn’t giving it a second thought. Fresh off her globe-trotting journey for her VH1 reality show The Price of Beauty , Simpson has come to realize “we all obsess over looking like the perfect Barbie type, and that’s not always what’s beautiful. It’s about making peace with yourself.” Now, the Lucky September cover girl has finally come to terms with her own body issues and is embracing her curvy hourglass figure. And for Simpson, that means learning how to dress for her body. Simpson dishes, “I’m a huge Jean Paul Gaultier fan. His pieces make my waist look good. Yes, they’re an investment, but I’ll have them when I’m old and gray.” On a more casual note, Jessica relies on Tucker’s blousy, long-sleeved silk tops. “Whenever I wear them, I make sure to show off my legs a little bit!” Her bottoms of choice? “I like skinny jeans, but I wear them a bit baggy and lower on my hips and roll them up at the bottom,” reveals the beauty. And of course, her favorite pairs are from her new denim line–which she donned for her cover shoot!

Jessica is NOT fat. What is wrong with some of you? Is it that hard to understand that we are not all made the same? Being healthy does not require 5 hrs at the gym every day and hanging out at Whole Foods 24/7. Get a life people.

I loved her show! I’ve been a fan of Jessica’s since I was a kid & I always thought she was pretty! It was nice to see a singer rocking some curves! People hate on what they wish they had or could be.

By the way, the photo subjects usually have NO control over the pictures. They sign a release letting the company use them, then they’re altered. There are times where celebs, like most recently Kourtney Kardashian, have blasted magazines over their photoshopping. I’m not against it because photoshop was not originally made to make people skinny, but I do agree they use it too much & for bad reasons.

OK, what’s wrong with this picture? She goes out of her way to make a big announcement that she’s not giving her weight fluctuation a second thought? Is that the first thought?

I agree with ya Bee. And, she needs to just shut up and go away. She acts like she’s saying something new, deep and insightful…it’s all been said before, we all know about loving yourself and being at peace with yourself. She’s such a doofus.

OMG, so many of you meow and hiss. I don’t understand why people knock this poor woman so much. She’s not out drinking and driving, she’s not getting busted for drugs, she’s not dating a new guy every week. I just don’t get why people are such haters. She seems like a good girl and since she’s not a size 0, she’s more like a “real” woman than most Hollywood types. If you don’t fricken like her, don’t read articles about her.

It’s sad so many of her fellow women chastise her for her “weight gain” and say “she let herself go”. As a heterosexual male, I can promise you ladies that plenty of us still think she’s sexy as all get out, and we like our women with some curves, rather than looking like rail thin 14 y/o boys.

Shame on you ladies, you should be supporting her, not talking ill of her for her weight.

Fat, thin, whatever. She’s still dumber than a bowl of room-temperature potato salad.
