Lack of Lachey Lament: New Simpson Album Isn't About Ex

by at . Comments

Call us crazy, but Nick Lachey seems to sing about his ex-wife a lot. Who, exactly, can't he hate anymore? And what would be the reason why there's not much left of him?

According to Lachey's former better half, however, only one song on her new album relates to the past.

Jessica Simpson Lips

Yes, Jessica Simpson is aware the title of this CD, "A Public Affair," may make it sound like it's about the spotlight placed on her doomed marriage, but she insists that isn't the case.

"A Public Affair is a play on words," Simpson, 26, told MTV News. "It's not about what you think it's going to be about."

Jessica understands the misconception. She said "people probably expected [it to be about Lachey] because of everything going on in my life, but it's not about him at all."

Well, one song is.

During the "really tough time" last year when things were falling apart, Simpson said she found comfort when she shared one of her favorite songs with recently constructed Ashlee, Patty Griffin's "Let Him Fly."

"We laid there listening to the song and just cried and cried like babies," Jessica confessed. "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 okay."

The song is covered on A Public Affair.

As for the rest of the CD, Jess says it's a declaration of freedom and fun.

"It's about me going out with my girlfriends and forgetting everything that's around me, which is paparazzi, and just having a fun night. Because (paparazzi) can ruin a night."

Can they ever! Just ask Lindsay Lohan.

My friends and I thought the song "A Public Affair" was awful. It was immature, superficial and silly, perfect for Jessica, but nobody else who had any substance or taste could tolerate it. PS, the video was by far worse. It made up us gag. It was stupid, like it had been produced by Paris Hilton or a seventh grader. Nick's album is much better and he shows he is the better singer (which we knew along). Jessica went Hollywood and Hollywood can have her and her wacko Dad. Good luck Nick, America likes you and you will be just great without Jess.
