Jessica Simpson is getting back to her roots.
No, we're not talking about being a reality TV ditz.
The reputed singer and actress has begun recording a country album.
"I am a country girl," she said. "I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to. I always wanted to wait until the time was right."
These boobs were made for giving country music a shot.
So why now? Well, what the hell else is there to do? Simpson's most recent flick, Blonde Ambition, was
a complete bomb given only a limited theatrical release and 2006's Employee of the Month also blew failed to find a big audience.
Her last pop CD, 2006's A Public Affair, also
sucked ass underperformed.
"Writing is a release for me," Jessica Simpson said of writing some of her own songs on the new record. "It's a way for me to tell my story... It's been a while since I have opened the book." We didn't actually know she could read.
In addition to the new country album, Simpson is also working on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo - if you know what we mean! We mean they're dating, and from his angle, it's not because of her brains or personality.
