Jessica Simpson and John Mayer are mute lovers

Like the rumor that Jessica Simpson was after James Blunt (which may have been true, but would you choose Simpson over Petra Nemcova?), I doubt that much will come of this, but People is reporting that Jessica Simpson and much more talented singer John Mayer are an item:

Jessica Simpson is embarking on a not-so-public affair – with singer-songwriter John Mayer, PEOPLE has confirmed.

“She’s tiptoeing back into the dating world,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It’s the first stage. She’s never been happier.”

Mayer, 28, began a co-headlining tour with Sheryl Crow on Aug. 24, and Simpson, 26, is expected to attend his concert in Jones Beach, N.Y., on Wednesday night.

Simpson is currently in New York promoting her new album, A Public Affair, which was released Tuesday – although a bruised vocal cord has quashed any planned performances. Similarly, Mayer had to cancel his Hartford, Conn., appearance with Crow on Saturday due to laryngitis, the Associated Press reported.

The two singers have known each other for several years and last year both attended Clive Davis’s pre-Grammys party in Beverly Hills.

So Jessica Simpson and John Mayer are supposedly dating now, and they’re both suffering from laryngitis at the same time. Aww.

It doesn’t matter how hot she is, Jessica is not the type of girl that keeps a busy single guy interested. She’s not mysterious enough, and seems like she would be a royal drag after a couple months. We doubt this will last.

Despite coming down with a case of laryngitis so bad she has to communicate in writing, Jessica Simpson appeared on MTV’s Total Request Live yesterday. Teeny boppers everywhere turned up the volume and sat close to the TV to catch her every brayed word.

Here are Simpson’s horrendous fashion choices as she arrives and leaves the MTV studios yesterday. Thankfully she wore a different outfit during the show, but it wasn’t much better. It was a flouncy shirt, vest and shorts combo.

Thanks to Hollywood’s Best for these photos.

    Mayer is a MAJOR step down from Lachey in the looks department. And why don’t these people hire stylists — don’t tell me she doesn’t have the money.

  2. Josiegirl says:

    In the pics I’ve seen of Mayer, he seems soft, pale and bloated. Lachey’s nose may be odd-shaped but the rest of him is smokin’ hot.

    Major step up from Lachey (hell, major step up from anyone she’s supposedly been with) in the talent and intellect department for Jessica. I guess anything to promote her “album”. GAWD!

    I think this is great, he is such a talented guy. Jessica deserves happiness, at least she did not do what Nick did— cry me a river… so buy my album. Talk about publicity stunt.. He totally played off her.

    I only have three words…”Why, Johnny, Why??” (sung to the tune of a song you know!)

  8. jaz says:

    one minute she’s dressing like a cheap hooker and the next she’s donning budget outfits…horrible clothes..
    outfits here look like they were dug out of a Goodwill bin..
    at least her boobs are not mashed together and spilling out..blech

    John Mayer is my all time favourite artist!!!! he is intelligent, articulate, credible….in short, brilliant. she cant sing, cant act and now it turns out she has no fashion sense.

    John Mayer is such a talented song writer. He actually writes his songs. He is so down to earth. What I don’t understand is why is he interested in Jessica Simpson. She is way into her fame and into her looks. I just don’t understand this relationship. John deserves someone with intellect!!!!!!!
