Jessica Simpson denies her dad fit her for a training bra

Jessica Simpson has finally chosen to address a few of the rumors about her uber-controlling father Joe, who has long been blamed for the wrecking of Jessica’s marriage… and all of her subsequent relationships. Joe’s made a lot of creepy comments about Jessica’s breasts in the past, and is altogether way too involved in his daughters’ lives, especially considering their ages. But some of the rumors are pretty crazy, and Jess finally put one to rest.

Jessica Simpson opened up about her dad during a radio interview in Colton, CA at K-Frog 95.1 on Tuesday.

“There have been stories that are ridiculous,” Simpson who is promoting her new country album said. “Like my father really fit me for a training bra. Like, who believes that kind of thing!?”

The singer was on the show to promote her new country album.

“I really just wanted to showcase the talent that God has given me and I don’t believe that in pop music I ever had the chance to stand on two feet and stand firm,” Simpson said.

I had never actually heard that rumor before – or I’ve subconsciously blocked it out – but it’s funny as all hell. As long as you assume it was made up by overzealous teenagers and bares no possibility of truth. Which is what I’m going with, because I cannot even begin to consider the other possibility.

Jessica’s country album is actually getting pretty good reviews so far. Clearly she has employed someone slightly sensible in terms of the music business. Because she’s right, there was just no way she was completive in the pop music market anymore. Even in her heyday Jessica was always a distant third to Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

In a weird way I think Papa Joe has helped her career. She’s gotten a ton of press in the last few years, at a time when no one was writing about her career. Thank goodness for creepy underwear rumors.

    OK, this has to be said, and I’m going to be the one to say it: Joe Simpson looks like he belongs on “To Catch a Predator.” The fact that he has a Borgia-like obsession with his daughter only makes it worse.

    “I really just wanted to showcase the talent that God has given me….”

    Um, really? Talent? Breathing heavily into a microphone does not a talent make.

    I guess I really just don’t like this chick, as I am from Dallas, and would like to not have our star quarterback distracted upon the start of this season. I hope he can just shag her rotten and get it out of his system. Then they can part amicably and she can go back to hawking shoes, handbags and perfume at Dillards stores nationwide.

    And funny, I never really cared much for her during her buffalo wings/Chicken of the Sea days with Nick Lachey, either, though I think they were more perfectly suited for one another — they’re both hamballs.

    And yes. Her dad is way gross.

    “The Borgias” yes, that is a good analogy, and very descriptive to those who read books and know what that families role was in italian politics of the time. dad has done jess good and bad, he should stick to managing her show business affairs not her affairs if he doesnt take time, she will end up and old maid… or worse a contestant on celebrity big brother..!!

    I’ve always heard that all publicity is good publicity…but I don’t think that’s true in this case. As a musician myself, I have to say…Joe is a good manager, but he does seem too involved in his daughters’ lives.

  5. Jean says:

    Jess had two parents in her formative years. I’m not so quick to let mama Simpson off the hook.

    She should advised her husband as to the impropriety of his statements and told him to STFU.

  6. mollination says:

    Her dad looks like such a blowhard with that gut sticking out of his Ed Hardy shirt, and his jacket and jeans that were meant for someone half his age.

    Secondly, I can’t fathom Jessica saying and/or coming up with on her own, “I don’t believe that in pop music I ever had the chance to stand on two feet”. It’s too articulate and insightful for her; and how sad is THAT?

    Also, let’s not forget she was even behind Mandy Moore back in the day! And somehow that still warranted her a Reality show, and THAT’S what made her popular! Sickening.

  7. Leah says:

    LMAO @ Mandy! “To Catch a Predator” is right. Joe Simpson totally seems the type to use the “I came over to tell her she shouldn’t be doing this!” excuse when confronted by Chris Hansen. He’d probably cry when the police arrested him, too. Damn, I miss that show!

  8. Lily says:

    Isn’t it strange that, with Jessica, Daddy beat the virginity thing to death, but he officiated at Ashlee’s shotgun hobbit wedding? Oh well. Ashlee’s probably better off. Jessica’s “daddy issues” will continue to destroy her relationships for years to come.

    Joe Simpson is an ass.

  10. vdantev says:

    Still too much of that creepy ‘incest is best’ vibe coming off of Papa Joe there.

  11. snappyfish says:

    The man is making money off his children. It is how he affords his lifestyle…somewhat in a succubus manner.

    I don’t like any of the simpsons. As neither, in my opinion, Jessica or Ashlee are talented. I don’t like how both of these children have been packaged and sold by their parents. Joe specifically as he manages his daughter’s careers.

    With everything that is packaged and sold…there is an expiration date. I feel both of these girl’s shelf life has expired.

    Excellent insight, Lily.

  13. poopie says:

    TO CATCH A PREDATOR !! EXACTLY ! this is sooo funny that this vibe is all over this… my thoughts EXACTLY. he totally creeps me out. you just KNOW that he has DONE her and not just once. she needs to grow up and make her own decisions, well, maybe not. how old IS she now? and i agree that she does NOT have a talented voice at all. all these POP TARTS sound alike.. go away jess, take your daddy ‘toy’ with ya and oh, your lil sis too…

  14. mamalicious says:

    I feel sorry for her, and Lily just explained why.

    “I don’t believe that in pop music I ever had the chance to stand on two feet and stand firm,”
    Look at the photos of her with her dad – he can’t leave her to stand / walk on her own (literally and figuratively).
