Jessica Simpson Says The Extra Pounds Make Her More Relatable

“I got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds, but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding. Because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.”

Jessica Simpson, who announced she’s expecting her first child earlier this week, is on the cover of the December issue of Lucky and seems to spend a lot of time during the interview discussing her weight. Jessica tells the magazine that she likes the way she looks “now,” which the mag describes as “not the celebrity ideal” because she stopped spending “six hours a day on the Exercycle and going on a juice cleanse.” Of the change in her body, Simpson says she “didn’t cry about it too much,” in part, it seems, because of the positive response she received from real women who found her more relatable as a result.

  • How do I put this delicately? Chris Brown is both a big dick and has a big dick. He just wishes the latter made up for the former. (You’ll have to click over to the link for the full photo.) [Crushable]
  • Well this is convenient: Kim Kardashian never got around to changing her last name of Humphries, which means she won’t have to change it back when their divorce is official! From now on, I am going to suggest that everyone wait more than 72 days before changing their names and call it “The Kardashian Waiting Period.” [TMZ]
  • Kris Jenner — that’s Kim’s mom and manager — says Kim didn’t “make a dime” off her wedding, to which I say, “Bitch, pleeeeeasssssse, and I am pregnant with Ryan Gosling’s baby.” [TooFab] Keep reading »

Consider me pleasantly surprised to see the immensely talented — and full-figured — singer Adele gracing the cover of December’s Cosmopolitan. I mention the full-figured thing only because of all the lady mags on stands, I would venture to guess that Cosmo has likely had the least amount of not-stick-thin cover models. Not only is it nice to see Adele on the cover, but it’s also worth noting that December issues tend to be packed with advertisers; additionally, it doesn’t appear that Adele has been airbrushed to hell and back. (Whether or not she was asked to answer inane questions remains to be seen.) [Cosmopolitan]
