Music psychology

I wonder how many times Jessica Simpson thought about this every time she chose a song for her albums?

Jessica’s new agent: Rick Nicita

Rick Nicita

Jessica Simpson has a new agent - Rick Nicita (email) who is the co-chairman Creative Artists Agency. He’s also the agent for Tom Cruise, Anthony Hopkins, Oliver Stone, Al Pacino, Kevin Kline, Kenneth Branagh and many other big Hollywood stars. Her earlier agent, Brandt Joel, apparently got into a big fight with Joe Simpson and Jessica then fired him. Who knows what the real story is, but it looks like Rick is a great agent.

Jessica: “I’ll love Nick till I die”

CelebGuru has some scans of two new Aussie magazines that Jess will be in - New Woman and Cosmo (by the way, Nick has just been in Australia promoting his new album and single). Nothing shockingly new in the interviews, she talks on the phone to Nick frequently, denies dating and says she’ll love Nick until she dies.

Worst picture I’ve seen of Jessica Simpson

Oh Jessica, what were you thinking? It’s not a tasteful look for a lady.

Employee of the Month Trailer

The trailer’s been out for a little while now (see it here) but I only just got around to watching it. The guy from the music video for “A Public Affair” (the geeky guy behind the rollerskating counter) looks like he’s also in the movie, right? It’s cool to see Jessica in a different role than Daisy Duke, but when I read some time ago just how few words she speaks in the movie I was a little disappointed - I’d love to see Jess mature as an actress and show some depth of character on screen. Anyways, the movie probably is aimed at kids younger than me and I’m not itching to go out and see the movie after seeing the trailer - I’ll wait till it’s out on DVD. It doesn’t look funny to me - and usually they have the funniest bits in the trailer, right?

What do you think of the trailer?

Jessica talks about her song “Let Him Fly”

Last Christmas, just after the breakup with now ex-husband Nick Lachey, Jessica listened to Patty Griffin’s “Let Him Fly”, one of her favourite songs, with her little sister Ashlee. The song comforted her and the two girls “laid there listening to the song and just cried and cried like babies” said Jessica.

While the girls have had a bit of sibling rivalry in the past (Ashlee even singing about being in the shadow of older sister Jess), they’ve been there for each other in the rough times. Think Ashlee on Saturday Night Live. Think Jessica and Nick’s breakup.

“In a lot of ways, my sister really gave me the strength to pull through this really hard time. And it was just lying there and being with her that got me through it. I knew everything would be OK. The song is about how sometimes you just have to know when to let something go. And that was that moment. And I had to sing it.” said Jessica.

“Let Him Fly” is the last song on her new album which comes out on August 29th.

Lyrics to Let Him Fly:

Ain’t no talkin to this man
Ain’t no pretty other side
Ain’t no way to understand the stupid words of pride
It would take an acrobat, and I already tried all that so
I’m gonna let him fly
Things can move at such a pace
The second hand just waved goodbye
You know the light has left his face
But you can’t recall just where or why
So there was really nothing to it
I just went and cut right through it
I said I’m gonna let him fly
There’s no mercy in a live wire
No rest at all in freedom
Of the choices we are given it’s no choice at all
The proof is in the fire
You touch before it moves away
But you must always know how long to stay and when to go
And there ain’t no talkin to this man
He’s been tryin to tell me so
It took awhile to understand the beauty of just letting go
Cause it would take an acrobat, I already tried all that
I’m gonna let him fly
I’m gonna let him fly
I’m gonna let him fly

Jessica Simpson’s new single: “You Sping Me Round (Like a Record)”.

Jessica Simpson’s new song from her forthcoming album, “A Public Affair” (out at the end of the month!) looks like it’ll be “You Sping Me Round (Like a Record)” - yes that classic 80s song by Dead or Alive (which always reminds me of watching “The Wedding Singer”). Jessica says it’s not really a cover, it’s more of a sample where the chorus is the same but there’s a different tune. Jess also says she’s singing in a different register so people won’t know it’s her voice. It’s doing to be a dance/club track so not sure if it’ll be released to radio at this point. I hope so though, a fun dance track could see Jessica go to #1.

On the other hand, people may criticise Jessica for not doing an entirely original song.

Jessica Simpson and Rashad Strik

Jessica Simpson has been out and about in Hollywood with Rashad Strik - the gorgeous Australian from her “A Public Affair” music video. And yes, you guessed it, people are already jumping to conclusions about the pair but I’m sure Jess is just laughing and singing the lyrics from her song: “All the cameras, come out, for a public affair / Who cares, let’s rock, cause the party don’t stop.”

Here’s a photo of Rashad Strik in case you’ve forgotten what he looks like:

“She just is sexy. If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she’s sexy in both. She’s got double Ds! You can’t cover those suckers up!”
