Nick Doesn't Understand What it means to be a Celebrity

Nick Doesn't Understand What it means to be a Celebrity

When Nick was recently in Australia to promote his album, the topic of Jessica came up in the interview. He said he did not understand the worlds fascination with them especially since they have been broken up for 9 months now. Did he forget this is how the world came to know the two of them? People reports:

It is bizarre," Lachey, 32, tells Australia's Sydney Morning Herald while Down Under promoting his album What's Left Of Me. "We get so used to it in the States, but, yeah, to think that it's become like that in a lot of other places in the world, yeah, it is strange. People kind of think they know you before they have a chance to talk to you. It is a surreal thing, but I guess it's kind of what we signed up for."

He admits that MTV's Newlyweds helped spark the fascination with him and Simpson, but says, "No one really understands this side of it, but she and I decided to use the show as a promotional vehicle for our albums, you know with MTV, who we'd worked with for years. It was supposed to be six episodes to promote our records, then it turned into this whole other thing."

Yeah that "whole thing" was what made you famous and also ruined your marriage. Let's hope things with Vanessa don't lead to a MTV reality TV show although we would totally watch it if it did. I mean, look how exciting it is to see them food shopping. I also love how now everyone thinks she looks like a combo of Katie Holmes and Angelina Jolie.

I don't think he needs to dump her. I saw one of his interviews and according to him there is nothing that he want more than having a baby and a family (like his brother).

The whole other thing was His wife and Father-in-law hi-jacked his life and marriage to promote her,while he was kind and agreeable until he found out she was coniving and she was willing to dump him when she got to the famous stage. It's not fun to talk about it, as he was duped and he's glad he's a survivor that came out with his career intact. Not all the good guys finish well.. Like many husbands of showbiz career driven women who make it, they get dumped and evil spoken of.. Chad Lowe, Hilary Swank, Lee Majors/Farrah Fawcett, Paul McCartney and his icky sleeze wife, etc?

Girl6 ITA he needs to stop playing the dummy role. He wouldn't even be known if it wasn't for his personal life.

According to imdb, she is 25. I was pretty sure she was the same age as jessica.

When I first looked at the pics I had the same thoughts as Pop. The first picture looks like Katie with Angelina's lips.

Right on mar! I know I said it before, but I am glad you are back, even in small increments :) Camp Pimpson had very special powers,don't forget that, y'all. Luckily, it is starting to crumble and will cease to exist before too long.

Team Aspartame- I think Papa Joe forced them into it. I remember a time when Nick really did not want it, but since Papa Joe was thier manager, it was not only up to Nick. he probably just tried to please his wife and her parents, that is pretty common these days. I think he just wanted to please her dad, get some acceptance, but it ended thier marriage. He is way too good for Jessica, she is a total idiot, not because she dumped him, but just because I say so.

Nick works overtime to make himself look like the bigger person in all of this, pretending to be befuddled by the fact that people think they know him before they meet him. But the fact is, he is out there promoting an album he titled "What's Left of Me" which is apparently all about his heartbreak over the demise of his marriage. Maybe he should write less personal songs and not let cameras live with him.
