Career Highlights[]

Simpson signed a recording contract with Columbia Records at age sixteen, and released her debut studio album Sweet Kisses in 1999. It sold over four million copies worldwide, and spawned the top three song "I Wanna Love You Forever".

Simpson married singer Nick Lachey 26 October 2002 after four years of dating. The couple starred in the reality television series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica (2003–2005) on MTV, chronicling their marriage and careers. The show became a pop culture phenomenon and made Simpson and her husband household names. The marriage did not last, however, and by November 2005 Simpson and Lachey confirmed they were separating; Simpson filed for divorce the following month citing irreconcilable differences.

Her third studio album, In This Skin (2003), became her most successful album to date and sold three million units in the United States. The album was aided in part due to the success of the single "With You" (2003), which topped the Mainstream Top 40 chart. She made her film debut as Daisy Duke in the film adaption of The Dukes of Hazzard (2005); it was commercially successful, though received a negative critical reaction. She also recorded the song "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" (2005) for the film, which went on to become her fifth top twenty song on the Billboard Hot 100.

Aside from her musical pursuits, she launched The Jessica Simpson Collection in 2005, a fashion line of clothing and other items. The brand has gone on to earn over one billion dollars in revenue, and is regarded as one of the most successful celebrity founded brands ever. She later starred in the romantic comedy Employee of the Month (2006). With the release of her sixth studio album Do You Know, Simpson moved into the country music genre. While the project was met harshly by critics, it debuted at Number One on the Top Country Albums chart. Simpson went on to star in the reality television series The Price of Beauty (2010), and was a judge on two seasons of Fashion Star (2012–2013). She is married to Eric Johnson and the couple have three children.
