There aren't too many artists cool enough to have performed at both an EndFest AND a Jingle Ball, but Jessica Simpson is one of them. Since she has lived her love life very much in the public eye the past ten years or so, there's lots of mean people out there who love to poke fun at her misfortunes, but not me. I've had the privilege of meeting her several times here at The End when she was still just an up-and-coming artist, and she was always very nice and friendly (don't we look cute together??). So that's why I'm bummed that she's going through another tough time in her life, as she was apparently dumped by her quarterback-boyfriend Tony Romo last week the night before her birthday! Bad timing, dude! But then again, quarterbacks aren't generally known for treating their women well. Jessica, I post this picture to remind you of happier times! By the way, I'm not exactly sure why it looks like I have a fro in this pic, but they made me wear that stupid headband to help promote "Irresistible," which was her new song at the time, way back in 2001!
