Jessica Simpson makes a dig at Carrie Underwood

Is Jessica Simpson delusional enough to think that she’s more talented than American Idol alum and current country chart-topper Carrie Underwood? Carrie is the top selling ‘Idol’ winner of all time, with both of her CDs going multi-platinum and earning three Grammy wins in the last two years. Meanwhile, Jessica’s “A Public Affair” album flopped, her movie career tanked, and she made a country album as a last resort. She’s even dating Carrie’s leftovers in the form of Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo. So when Jessica was photographed wearing a T-shirt that read “Real Girls Eat Meat”– it was perceived as an obvious dig at Underwood, who was just voted’s “Sexiest Vegetarian.

As you can see, Jessica Simpson was recently caught wearing a “Real Girls Eat Meat” T-shirt. Puhleeze!

For a gal who’s best known for her less-than-stellar brains (Chicken of the Sea, anyone?) and her ability to proportionately fill out daisy dukes, I’m gonna go on record saying that if anyone had to wear a ridiculous shirt like this, I’m glad it was Jessica—as people are more likely to follow the opposite of her lead … ya know, since she’s so well respected and all (yes, that was difficult to type without tossing in a hefty LOL). Maybe the meat-eaters of the world will be embarrassed to be categorized in the same field as Jessica Simpson.

[From the PETA Blog]

In Touch says that the rift between the two blond singers goes a little deeper. Apparently, Tony Romo was still e-mailing and texting Carrie even after he started seeing Jessica- and Simpson is still pissed about it.

“Jessica is worried that Tony still has feelings for Carrie,” an insider says. “She doesn’t want them talking.”

It also doesn’t help that the American Idol winner is her rival in the music business. “Carrie has the career that Jessica wants,” her pal explains.

But from the way things looked at the CMA Music Festival, Carrie, 25, is not a big fan of Jessica’s either. During the festival, which took place June 5-8, the two women seemed to avoid each other – even though event organizers were intent on getting them together. “They wanted Jess to introduce Carrie, or have them attend a charity event together, or maybe even do a duet to put the rumors to rest about the feud,” a CMA insider explains. “But everything that was thrown out there was rebuffed.”

[From In Touch Weekly print version, June 23, 2008]

I think it comes down to this: Jessica Simpson is a desperate fame whore who will do anything to stay relevant, even abandon her pop career and try country if she thinks people will pay attention to her. An artist like Carrie, who has been performing country music her entire life, even when appearing on the very mainstream pop ‘Idol,’ probably sees Jessica’s foray into country as an insult. As for the Tony Romo thing, any problems Jessica has in that relationship, she can thank her dad for- not Carrie Underwood. And finally, it always seems like Jessica is feuding with another girl who has the career she wants- remember how she ragged on Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera? Instead of taking digs at girls who have a better career, maybe Jessica should focus on her own sorry ass.

Picture note by Celebitchy: Jessica Simpson is shown in NY on 6/10/08 and at the CMA Music Festival on 6/6/08, thanks to WENN. You can see her in the asinine “Real Girls Eat Meat” shirt on Bauer Griffin Online.

    I don’t see that shirt as particularly being a dig at Carrie. I’m not sure Jessica is bright enough to enjoy the subtlety of such an insult. I suspect it’s more like…well, my dirty mind has an idea of what sort of meat she’s talking about.

  2. blabbermouth says:

    I thought she was just sucking up to the cattle rustler-types who make a living raising steers and such.

  3. Jean says:

    Whatever went on between Romo and Carrie ended months before he and Jessica began dating (does anyone remember Sophia Bush and Britney Spears?).

    Romo and Jessica aren’t married. What would stop him from pursuing Carrie if that’s what he wanted? The fact that he hasn’t indicates that he’s not interested in Carrie.

    Jess got the shirt on her trip to NYC last week and probably wore it because of the funny sexual innuendo. This feud is a tabloid creation designed to sell their rags.

    Finally, Tony looks like a big guy who enjoys a full meal. I can see why he wouldn’t click with a vegan. Oil and water….

  4. Bodhi says:

    I don’t think its a big deal either.

  5. CM says:

    Can we say, blown out of proportion much? She’s wearing a shirt for god sakes…it’s not like she made the shirt out of spite! I have a lot of shirts with stupid sayings on them, it doesn’t mean I believe all of them and they all pertain to my life!

  6. Codzilla says:

    Blabbermouth, that’s what I initially thought, too. But I think MSat’s take makes a lot of sense. Jessica will take any attention she can get, especially now that she’s trying to get people to care about her country album. Which I hope they won’t do so maybe she’ll finally go away.

  7. badass says:

    I’m on Carrie Underwoods side.She is innocent and TONY cheated on her..I hope Jessica gets cheated on too.So they both have something in common.You can take the trash outta of Jessica just not the stupidity.

    Eating meat..Does that means she sucks alot of

  8. LiLi says:

    jessica has no worries about underwood.
    carrie has eating disorders and guys don’t usually enjoy that

  9. booya says:

    I don’t think it was a dig at Underwood either. I thought it was a little innuendo for. . .well ya know. Jessica has had a good career.. she’s made a ton of money but has been over exposed.
    We need a little break from her I think. I also don’t think it’s fair to compare her career with Carrie’s. Jessica has been around and popular for about a decade. That’s not bad in Hollywood terms.

  10. Eeeepers says:

    Maybe its just a fucking shirt.

  11. kimmi says:

    I agree with Eeepers, maybe it IS just a fucking shirt.
    And Jessica actually had a pretty solid career in the past, and if you go back to some of her old songs, you’ll see that she is actually a good singer. Also, if you go back to some of her old interviews (pre Nick) she does have a little something between the ears.
    I think people formed these negative opinions about her after she played the role of “dumb blond” on Newlyweds, and then made one bad career/relationship decision after another.
    P.S. I like me some meat too 😈

  12. Mairead says:

    I doubt that the t-shirt was a dig at Carrie either. It’s either about meat or… um… meat. Sounds like something that’s a private joke and, as usual, gossip media is bringing to an illogical conclusion.

    As for the music festival – it’s a bit unfair to spring a duet on them, especially if it was at the last moment. It could be just as likely Carrie Underwood’s management nixed it too – not enough time to rehearse, wanting to protect their asset from negatitve publicity etc. etc. Now don’t misunderstand, I’m not being negative about CU(I wouldn’t know her music from a hole in the wall), but I wouldn’t assume that either she or her management are a pushover either, which I think is a good thing.

    (and had they agreed in advance to do introductions? No. Then stop moaning), so fair play to both of them for sticking to their guns and fulfilling their contracts as agreed.

  13. lola lola says:

    Maybe it was a dig at Madonna. She’s a well-known vegetarian too…Kidding! yeah, a shirt is just a shirt. Maybe she just had a great burger.

  14. Scott F. says:

    My wife got one of those shirts after her sister bitched her out for wearing a leather jacket. A lot of people are tired of being called murderers because of their choice of nourishment.

    I’m just saying that I too doubt it was a dig at a specific person, and either a dig at all those in Hollywood that look down on carnivores, or just a silly sex joke.

    I own a shirt that says ‘For every animal you don’t eat, I’ll eat three.’ I just thought it was funny, and that’s probably the line her mind was following too.

  15. anon69 says:

    even if true, it still isn’t as bad as that tshirt that Julia-my-shit-don’t-stink-Roberts wore to crack on the wife of the man she was sleeping with.

  16. G. says:

    Scott F., I want your shirt.

  17. Emily says:


  18. Simon Scowl says:

    She looks pretty damn healthy to me.

    It’s funny how PETA calls for compassion towards animals in their little propaganda blast there. Try telling that to the puppies and kitties they left in the dumpster behind that Piggly Wiggly.

  19. vdantev says:

    I recommend a bikini jello wrestling contest between these two to settle their differences once and for all. Best two out of three falls. The loser gets a bare-bottom spanking by the winner afterward. I’ll even judge the competition for free. I promise to be impartial. 😀

  20. vdantev says:

    Hey Simon,

    Why don’t you quit spamming for, there’s already a damn link !

  21. tanille says:

    Its just a freaking shirt, i doubt everything Jessica Simpson does in life revolves around Carrie Underwood

  22. Banana Boat says:

    LiLi- Carrie U has an eating disorder? really? On what authority? Seriously, speculate if you want but acting like you know first hand is not fair to anyone. besides, Carrie looks healthy and thin. I think she looks fantastic and I would love to have her figure. I look ok but actually
    recently went vegetarian and trust me, that helps losing the weight- that alone. Just my experience is all. Also, Carrie is in the public eye more now so she probably uses a trainer and dietician too to make sure she stays on track.

    Personally I’m not a fan of Carrie’s music but she does have an amazing voice. WAY more talented than Jessica. I hope Jessica fades out of the picture soon I’m sick of seeing that open mouth all over the place!

  23. Jaundice Machine says:

    I agree with Skyo; I just don’t think Jessica Simpson has the mental aptitude to take that subtle a dig on Carrie. I think she’s just trying to appeal to the “meat and potatoes” crowd to a) help her album sales and b) prevent her ass from being booed at Cowboys’ games.

    As a vegetarian, I remain nonplussed, but I do have the sudden urge to break out my ho-made “Vegetarians Do It Raw” t-shirt out of storage.
    (Don’t worry, I’m not one of ‘those’ veg-heads. Eat what you like and like what you eat! It makes no difference to me. )

  24. LOVE it says:

    Loved the comments made by SYKO. If I were Ms. Simpson, I would feel threatened by Carrie Underwood too. Carrie is stunning, can “really” sing, and seems to have more class too.

  25. Simon Scowl says:

    If you’re going to make an unfounded accusation, vdantev, you can at least spell the site’s name right. It’s

  26. LiLi says:

    banana boat- try searching the internet for carrie u. eating disorder and you get a ton of information about it.

  27. AE says:

    Can you just imagine Romo and Jessica laughing themselves silly over the uproar that t-shirt has caused? I doubt thoughts of Carrie had anything to do with it, but was probably worn as a result of Jessica not knowing how to use the washing machine. The last time she had an extended trip, she came home wearing one of his jerseys and took a lot of flak for that. She probably thought covering up the white tank top while advertising a NY steakhouse couldn’t be worse. LOL. I swear, Romo and Jessica are starting to emerge as the hottest, funniest celebrity couple around. I hope they stay together because it’s been a long time since I had this much fun laughing at these posts and comments.

  28. silly lilly says:

    Jessica is not in Carries league. Jessica is a has been very in love with herself delusional girl who drives me nuts with that finger pointing shaking thing for every note she is going to try to hit… Carrie… is a very young and talented girl who probably will be around years after Jessica Simpson is hawking some faux jewelry on QVC

  29. BB says:

    I live in Nashville and we are certainly not all “cattle-rustler types who make a living raising steers and such”!!! That’s a pretty ignorant statement! By the way MSAT i was at the CMA Festival and Jessica Simpson just did a small hosting gig on Thursday night, she was literally on stage for less than 5 minutes! Carrie Underwood performed on Friday so they probably didn’t even cross paths. Seems like you are strangely bitter about Jessica Simpson for some reason but she has had a very sucessful career for a long time and Carrie Underwood came to fame not so long ago from a REALITY SHOW !!!!!?????

  30. spoonman says:

    This trani looking chick has stretched her 15 minutes of fame out way to long. Did anyone but me mistake her for a man on the GQ cover shaving-I sure as hell thought it was a man until a friend told me it was JS.

    BTW-wait till you have something more than paparazzi success before thinking your in the same league as a platinum selling country singer…

  31. jamie says:

    WoW!Are yall bitter much??How about you just let the girl wear whatever tshirt she wants and get over it!Jess Simpson has nothing to worry about… what guy would pick a scrawny big toothed carrie underwood over Jess Simpson?!?You think Jessica Simpson tries to blend in by singing country music??If you knew her past you would know that Jess loves country music!She was raised with it!Have you even heard jess’s new song?Carrie Underwood couldnt outsing her if her life depended on it lol!What is the deal with not eating meat anyway??Its good for you as long as its lean and in moderation!As I said before…Carries scrawny butt needs a lil meat!



  32. mikayla says:

    while tony was dating carrie, he was talking to jessica on the side, it was even rumored that the 2 had planned a get together while he was still dating carrie. jessica had her people get in contact with him because she wanted to meet him despite the fact that he had a girlfriend, she didnt care because she is classless. what got jessica’s attention was when she was watching true hollywood story and tony had mentioned he always had a crush on her and that of course stuck with desperate jessica. tony then lied to carrie and told her he needed a break because football season was starting he has done this before to carrie and then begged for her back and carrie gave him a second chance,after that the begging…he said he needed to focus on football and then he turned around and hooked up with jessica. carrie was hurt by this because she was looking for a serious relationship from him. after he was dating jessica and then they took a break he was calling carrie but carrie did not pick up his calls she was over him and has moved on, carrie is a respectable classy girl and she doesnt open her legs like jessica does. tony stuck around with jessica as long as he did because of sex and because she loves meat!! (wink ;)…

  33. josseline says:

    carrie underwood is a very beautifull girl with a very beautifull voice,with a very successfull career, she is the “whole package”..and that is why jessica is threatened and insecure with carrie. jessica has always been one of those girls who is insecure with beautifull women..especially since carrie dated tony shes intimating jessica.
