Jessica Simpson has a lot respect for Britney Spears’ life and profession
Singer, entrepreneur, and mom-of-three Jessica Simpson opened up in a brand new PEOPLE interview and in it, she talked about how a lot she admires fellow star Britney Spears.
Simpson’s memoir “Open Book” is being launched in paperback model this week and in celebrating all of the e book has given her, she addressed the poisonous leisure surroundings each she and Spears got here up in and the way she couldn’t even watch the much-acclaimed New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears.
“I honestly choose not to watch the documentary,” she mentioned. “I didn’t want to watch and bring back any of the dark pieces of my personal coming of age in the music business. I have worked through a lot and want to keep moving forward in my own story on my own path.” Though it was painful for many of us to observe, Simpson is aware of all too properly the pressures that occurred again within the ’90s and early 2000s to suit right into a mould Hollywood created for girls.
Simpson mentioned she’s admired Britney for dealing with the pressures of the business.
“I admire her ambition, strength and the capability to live unapologetically and authentically,” she mentioned of Spears, including that she’s “happy that people are supporting Britney.” A ‘Free Britney’ motion, which has been ongoing for years relating to her conservatorship has gotten main backing publicly from celebrities and followers alike.
In her memoir’s latest model, Simpson opened up about how a lot her physique was scrutinized again then and the strain to be as small as potential to suit what the business believed would promote information. “There is a wonderful movement for body positivity now and the response to that portion of my story has been overwhelmingly supportive,” she mentioned. “I don’t think people always realized that there was a human being, a beating heart and working eyes with actual feelings behind those headlines and that words can hurt and stay with you for a lifetime.”
Both singers have been open in regards to the strain to reduce weight.
Spears herself tackle the fixed strain, even now, to look a sure approach. “I’m trying to learn how to use technology in this technology driven generation,” Spears mentioned in an Instagram put up in February. “But to be totally honest with you I can’t stand it!!! So…if my posts aren’t perfect…I’m doing this for fun!!!! If you think I should look like I’m on a magazine cover when I dance….sorry ain’t happening.”
Simpson’s sentiments echoed that of her fellow artist. “I spent so many years beating myself up for an unrealistic body standard that made me feel like a failure all of the time,” she mentioned. “I am still a work in progress when it comes to self-criticism but now I have the tools to quiet those voices in my head when they speak up.”
