Jessica Simpson Plans Return to Music: My Husband Has Never Really Seen Me Onstage
By Jackie Willis
Jessica Simpson's family knows her as a savvy businesswoman, but they'll soon start seeing her musical side.
The 35-year-old entertainer shared with Today show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie that the home studio she's been building in her basement is about done, and she plans to start recording again. She has not put out an album since 2010, when she released Happy Christmas.
Guthrie pointed out that Simpson's kids, 2-year-old Ace and 3-year-old Maxwell, aren't too familiar with their mother, the pop star.
Simpson admitted that not even her husband, Eric Johnson, knows that side of her. "I recorded a Christmas album with him, but he has never really seen me onstage, and do my thing that actually got me here," she said.
There is one thing Simpson won't ever do again, and that's reality television. "That's very rear view," the former Newlyweds star said with a laugh. "Having a camera on me at all times, we all know I stick my foot in my mouth a little bit too much. Now that I'm a mom, I probably have to keep it together a little bit better."
Simpson also appeared on The Tonight Show on Tuesday and shared with host Jimmy Fallon -- who also has two babies close in age -- what he has to look forward to when raising toddlers.
"Pooping in the grass," Simpson warned Fallon. "Just popping a squat."
She also confessed that her kids are "better at technology" and "somehow find the pictures not to post."
The chaos of looking after two toddlers has only made Simpson and Johnson's marriage stronger. The couple recently celebrated Simpson's 35th birthday in St. Barths, and the week-long, adults-only vacay got pretty extravagant. Check out ET's pics from the million-dollar soiree:
