Jessica Drops Out of Dolly Tribute

Jessica was in tears after she messed up the words to 9-5 during a tribute to Dolly Parton at the Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month. Before running off the stage Jessica said, "Dolly you make me so nervous. I can't even sing the words right." Jess has now decided she doesn't want to be included in the broadcast of the show airing December 26th. Here's more:

Simpson botched the lyrics when she originally performed the song live, then recorded it again for the broadcast show. However, ultimately Simpson's spokesperson, Cindi Berger, told the Associated Press after Simpson had viewed the tape, "She really wasn't happy with her performance, and she did want it to be perfect for Dolly, who she idolizes."

George Stevens Jr., the show's producer, said, "We appreciate the time and energy Ms. Simpson put into this event and respect the high standards she has for herself and that of the Kennedy Center Honors."

We're really bummed that we won't be able to see Jessica in the tribute. Sounds like she's just still embarrassed and wants to forget about the whole thing.
