Jessica Simpson's sunshine yellow dress on the cover of Glamour matches right up with her bubbly personality in the interview. She can't help gushing about how much she is enjoying life right now, from her relationship with Tony to her upcoming country album. Plus, as dolled up as she may be for her photoshoots, she also says that she's never felt more natural and down to earth, thanks to her new man. Here are highlights:
- On reading the tabloids: "I'm not going to lie and say that I don't want to see Tony and me in the pictures. It is good airplane reading if you throw it away when you get off; I'm good at that. I am not the type of person who believes everything she reads, but I like to look at photos and see what people are wearing. That's interesting to me."
- On the first time she saw Tony: "The cute story is that my family and I were watching a Cowboys game. I was going through my divorce and--Tony would die if I told you this--but [on television there was a story] about him. They said his celebrity dream crush was Jessica Simpson."
- On how Tony makes her feel: "He's a motivational speaker. Because he's a quarterback, a leader. He keeps his team focused. What he's done for me is irreplaceable. I wrote a song for him called "Back in My Old Boots." I feel like I'm walking back in my old boots. Jessica Simpson didn't lose herself along the way. He reintroduced me to myself. I thought that I had to be deeper, more profound and more artsy. You change with the guys you date. [I thought] I had to be more intellectual. Come on--just be yourself! Tony taught me that because he loves me [as me]. He made me feel comfortable [being myself] again."
Jessica's had her share of relationships with celebrities, but it sounds like she's finally ready to settle down out of the spotlight. We love seeing her all dressed up, but hearing about how happy she is in her own skin is even better.
