A Public Affair Nightmare for Jessica Simpson?

by at . Comments

While Madonna has been off making friends and touring, could another star be stealing one of her most well-known hits?

That's the buzz circulating around the latest from Jessica Simpson. Her new single, "A Public Affair" reminds many listeners of a Material Girl Classic, "Holiday."

Let's analyze the similarites: There's the the synth-pop beat to the jangly guitars in the beginning ... the eight-note motifs in the verses to the choruses that begin on an A ... and the use of the same key (B-minor).

In a completely unscientific poll, TMZ.com confirmed that every person to whom it played "A Public Affair" identified it as "Holiday." Simpson's rep says her latest tune is "a fun summer single and comparing to retro Madonna is flattering!"

Ripping off the cultural icon, however? That would be illegal.

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.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

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?
