Jessica Simpson left many people scratching their heads after a recent appearance on Ellen. The pop-star-turned-affordable-fashion-designer-mogul gave a bizarro interview which had many viewers wondering if: A. She was OK, or B. She was drunk.
The interview starts with Simpson, unprompted, talking about how “excited” she is that she isn’t pregnant and that she hopes she never gets pregnant ever again. Then she briefly talks about getting an IUD so “nothing’s gonna get in that uterus,” before trying to remember how many years she’s been with her husband (she finally decides on seven), and then saying she’s been in a relationship with a woman before correcting herself and saying, actually, she hasn’t been in a relationship with a woman “like that.”
From there, the conversation descends even further with Simpson talking about her daughter’s recent mermaid-themed birthday party and how mermaids go to the bathroom, her husband’s ability to give back massages while he’s sleeping, and her billion dollar business that she readily admits she has no idea how she built, especially because she’s terrible at math.
“But somehow you have a billion dollar business,” Ellen says.
Simpson laughs. “Isn’t that awesome? Ha! It can happen for anybody!”

Dedicating my first tweet in a long time to Jessica Simpson, who on Ellen today showed us she is still really, really dumb…wow

some people are so young that they associate jessica simpson with reasonably priced shoes and not tuna fish.
