Jessica Simpson Wants a Vegas Residency: I'm Still a Singer, Dammit!

by at .

When you hear the name Jessica Simpson, you might think of a successful businesswoman, a beloved social media personality, or even a drunk Home Shopping Network pitchwoman, but you don't think of a gifted vocalist with incredible stage presence.

If Jess has her way, however, that may soon change.

In Touch is reporting that after seeing how successful (and lucrative) Britney Spears' Vegas residency has been, Jess is convinced that Sin City is the is the place for her.

“She’s hell-bent on landing a Vegas residency,” says one insider.

“With state-of-the art technology and backdrops paired with her sex appeal, she thinks she can give the other headliners a run for their money."

Yes, it seems even Jess is aware that she'll need to pull out all the stops in order to compete Brit and company.

Perhaps she can get a hologram of Nick Lachey to duet on some of her earlier hits?

So she has no delusions about her talent, but she may have a slightly over-inflated ego when it comes to her place in show business lore:

“After 20 years in the music business, Jess is excited to follow her dreams and become a Vegas legend," says the source.

A Vegas legend, eh?

Jess might technically still be in show business, but at this point, she's more famous for posting racy Instagram pics with her husband than for anything she ever sang.

We'll never forget Jessica's bikini photos, but we have a hard time remembering the lyrics to ...

What's that song she sang? Something about Duff beer? Ill-fitting leather gloves?

We might have her confused with some other Simpsons.

Anyway, the point is, the folks who would hire Jess to sing in their casino probably already know what she doesn't:

No one is shelling out big bucks to see Jessica Simpson croon her non-existent catalog of hits.

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?
