Simpson was born in Abilene, but grew up in Richardson, a suburb of Dallas. She is the daughter of Joe and Tina Simpson and older sister of Ashlee Simpson, who in2004 her own music career started. Jessica started singing at the age of 12 in the children's choir of her father's Church. Also tried the singer at that age to take part in the television program The New Mickey Mouse Club, in which teen stars like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera attended. Jessica rather auditions back.
During a camp of the church choir where she sang, her talent was discovered and she took a cd on. the disc was never released, because the label on which it appeared, shortly before the release was scrapped. Next, a demo of the singer in the hands of Tommy Mottola, boss of record label SONY Music. In Simpson he saw a new pop artist and he immediately offered her a recording contract for several albums to.

The debut album Sweet Kisses was released soon after and sold about 2 million units in America alone. the second single I Think I'm In Love With Youwas also a big hit.
Despite the success of her first album, Tommy Mottola was not satisfied with the results achieved. Outside the us, Jessica's music was coldly received by the public. The sale of its plates came nowhere near that of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. To encourage more sales, a more sexy image for Mottola Simpson decided to create.When the second album by the singer- Irresistible called-in 2001 appeared, the promotion went hand in hand with enlarged breasts, sexy video clips and challenging photo sessions. Unfortunately, the action of Mottola no success, because both the album and the singles flopten.
On 26 October 2002, Simpson married Nick Lachey, known as a member of boy band 98 Degrees. For her third album In This Skin from 2003 took out the singer inspiration out of the marriage. With You the single became a big hit in the us. Around the time the album came out, took Jessica more fame because they along with her husband in a reality show, Newlyweds, showed up on MTV. The combination of the two lovers (Jessica as dumb blonde with the strangest actions and Nick Lachey as sensible lad who several times wondering why he had struck such a stupid woman on the hook) turned out to work well with the public and the program was a big hit.Jessica's first Christmas album appeared at the end of 2004, Soma: The Christmas Album.
Next, the singer the step from music to film. Simpson began In 2004 with the recording of The Dukes of Hazzard, in which she played Daisy Duke .

For the soundtrack of the film took Jessica de Nancy Sinatraclassic "These Boots Are Made For Walkin on. the song also came on single and became a huge hit in some countries. After months of rumors in the media in november 2005 Simpson announced her divorce from Nick Lachey to. The marriage was broken, because the two had grown apart. This was also a successful end to the Newlyweds.Remarkably, were Jessica and Nick after their separation often separately by media spotted in the American night life.
In 2006, Jessica has a whole new album to her credit: A Public Affair. The first single A Public Affair of it-also known as-was a great success in the us. Through its website, Jessica's fans could make a choice between different numbers one of which end up as second single would appear. That was I Belong To Me, a song that had not met the album in the us. When A Public Affair (early 2007) appeared in Europe this number to the international version was added. In the us the single was a flop, making the album quickly disappeared from the charts. A Public Affair was Simpsons worst selling album until then. Because the singer had always had a great love for country-music, was in agreement with her label decided to record an entire album in that style. The cd half 2008 appeared in the us under the title Do You Know and contained, among other things, a duet between Jessica and Idol Dolly Parton. The first single Come On Over was a hit in the u.s. Country chart. Although the album still number 4 in the u.s. achieved album list, it was mercilessly knocked down by critics and flopped the plate eventually even harder than Simpsons previous LP.
