Do you think Jessica Simpson will be the next Britney Spears?
Jessica Simpson, who's been getting flak for gaining weight, really does appear to have the weight of the world on her shoulders. Simpson had a near meltdown Thursday as she opened for Rascal Flatts in Grand Rapids Michigan. The singer fought back tears, forgot the words to lyrics and mumbled her way through a bizarre 38-minute set of songs.
Almost from the opening song, Simpson fought with her ear monitors, suggesting she was having difficulty hearing herself. At one point, she had her band stop, then start over.
After that, she forgot the lyrics to "Come on Over," causing her to apologize. Things got so bad that, while introducing her closing song, she said there have been times when she felt like walking off the stage - "like tonight." It looked as if she was wiping away tears as she walked off the stage...
The poor thing - I don't particularly like Jess Simpson, but it's not fair that she cops so much flack for gaining the tiniest bit of weight - I mean, she's still smaller than most people. That would make anyone cry
