It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Jessica Simpson as many people find her new “fuller” figure quite shocking, particularly when she tried to squeeze into a tight black tank top and high-waisted jeans. Since then, she has graced the covers of tabloids and people has questioned her physical and mental health. However, after keeping it cool and telling ‘The Early Show’ that she’s happy where she is now, Jessica Simpson can just talk about her wardrobe malfunction and laugh about it.
At the Madison Square Garden Thursday night, Jessica Simpson opened up for Rascal Flatts with a 35-minute set. The country singer “proudly” talked about splitting her pants in the past and she’s not afraid to share this detail in front of a huge audience.
Jessica Simpson took the stage in a short, swingy black “skort” outfit (a skirt and shorts in one) because she’s had wardrobe malfunctions with pants in the past. Simpson said, “I’ve had times when my pants split right down the middle when I bent down to reach a note. That’s why I’m wearing a skort – not a skirt, not a short – just so they wouldn’t split.”
Aww. Poor Jessica had to explain what she was wearing. For someone who says is not affected by the weight jokes and criticisms, she’s not doing a pretty good job hiding it. Good thing her boyfriend Tony Romo looks in-love with the country singer as they dined in at the Waverly Inn for a pre-Valentine’s date.
