Jessica Simpson Drops Out of Kennedy Center Honors

by at . Comments

Don't look for Jessica Simpson when the Kennedy Center Honors are broadcast on CBS December 26.

Due to her flubbed attempt to pay tribute to honoree Dolly Parton with a rendition of the country legend's hit song "9 to 5," Simpson has withdrawn from the program (which was filmed December 3).

The former flame of Nick Lachey botched the lyrics when she originally performed the song live, then recorded it again for the broadcast show.

Ultimately, though, 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."

With that in mind, Jessica has bowed out. You can probably find her hiding out somewhere with John Mayer.

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
