Typically, that headline would seem rather obvious. A father wants his daughter to be happy? D’uh! When it comes to Joe Simpson, however, you never know.

After all, this is a man who once told GQ in 2004: “She’s got double Ds! You can’t cover those suckers up!”

We love Jessica Simpson pictures and breasts, too, but we didn’t help to create them with our sperm.

Anyway. Us Weekly ran into Papa Joe at NYC’s Roxy Tuesday night. The magazine asked him about Jessica’s love life and career. Nary a word about boobs was uttered.

Q: “What about romantically … would you like to see anything exciting happen [in Jessica’s love life]?”

A: “You know, although everyone says I’m the bad guy, I stay out of her romance! I don’t have anything to do with her romance nor Ashlee’s! You know, all I wish for her is to be happy. It’s been a sad year, she’s been through some tough, tough times, and as a father, I wish joy for her, whatever brings her joy and happiness, that’s what I wish for her.”

Q: “What do you think of the rumors of Jessica dating John Mayer?”

A: “You know, Jessica will have to speak for her own love life, that’s not my area. She doesn’t tell me!”

Q: “Do you respect him as an artist at least?”

A: “Absolutely. I admire his art and his talent.”
Just thinking aloud here, but if Kevin Federline had any art or talent, people would probably say the same thing about him.
