Jessica Sings On Today

OK I actually feel bad for her. The girl showed up bright and early to sing on The Today Show and tried her hardest to carry a tune. She really has no voice and she tried so hard. It pained me to watch, partly because watching her sing is always unpleasant, but also because I really felt sorry for her. I actually want to give her credit for trying so hard. She was a trooper. She even spoke to Matt afterwards and I wanted him to stop asking her questions. She was clearly in pain. No mentions of her new man John Mayer or her ex, Nick. She did talk about what happened with her throat and the VMAs. Here's more:

"I have no voice," she said afterwards to Lauer, explaining that the problem wasn't laryngitis. "I bruised a blood vessel in my vocal cords. I don't know if I had, like, a screaming, crying attack, or a coughing attack, or a sneeze or what."

When she learned of her diagnosis just as she was scheduled to begin promoting her album, Simpson said her reaction was "Oh, dang it!" But, she said, she promised to make good on any cancelled appearances (she'd postponed a visit to the Late Show with David Letterman and stopped by – but didn't sing on – MTV's TRL on Tuesday).

Thursday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, Simpson presented the best dance video trophy to the Pussycat Dolls.

"The VMAs were a blast," she told Lauer. "I was only there for a little bit."

She didn't go to any parties afterward? "If I did," she said, "I wouldn't be here today."

These Simpson girls have more problems with their throats/voices than ANYONE we have eva seen in the music biz. Why do these chicks have record contracts? Oh, we remember now...cuz they have boob and nose jobs and their Dad is a whacked out, religious perv who pimps his daughters to the world. Sorry, we had a momentary lapse a reason for a moment. All better now! They should change the Music Biz to the Boobic Biz. We know strippers that can sing better drunk at a karaoke bar than these chicks can. Beauty is our duty!

She's put HERSELF through a lot. And she didn't show heart, in my opinion, she showed stupidity by singing with a damaged vocal cord. Her voice is her instrument and by singing when told not to, she is abusing it and risking whatever career she has left. When my throat is even remotely sore, I baby it with tea, lemon, honey, saltwater, etc, and tone down my singing. If I had a damaged cord, I would NOT be singing or even talking (the no talking would probably thrill my hubby!)

I think that she looked really good on the Today show this morning. I'm so glad she ditched the extensions because she looks so much better without them. I also felt a little sorry for her after watching her try to sing this morning. Her lips in that second pic are scary looking!

Maybe. But it would actually be a pretty dumb move if her voice is really screwed up now.

she showed heart

I can't understand why she chose to sing either, particularly after her Doctor said she could do some serious damage to her vocal chords if she did sing. Weird. Maybe she just wanted to show everyone that she wasn't faking the laryngitis.

She looks pretty here, I don't know why she would try and sing when her voice is messed up. You could definitely tell a difference in her voice when she presented at the VMAs.

pink_magnetism pink_magnetism 9 years
I didn't see this obviously, but I'm wondering why she would go sing when she's lost her voice? Wouldn't she do more damage by singing? I do like the outfit though.

She sucks and she looks more tranny with each passing day. And no, I don't get tired of saying the same thing about her over and over again.

Wait a minute, she sounded just fine when she was on the VMAs last night on stage giving away an award, then the minute she got off stage her voice was "gone" again . Did anyone else catch that last night????
