Jessica Simpson Talks Getting Seduced By An A-Lister, But I'm Totally Distracted By This Side Story Of An 'NSYNC Singer Sleeping In His Car
By Heidi Venable,
The late ‘90s/early aughts were a great time for pop music, with icons like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera hitting the scene and boy bands like ‘NSYNC, the Backstreets Boys and 98 Degrees at the height of their game. Jessica Simpson was right there too, and she’s apparently got plenty of tea to spill about things that went down in her young adulthood, including being seduced by a “massive movie star.” As titillating as that story is, though, I can’t stop thinking about her revelations about being pursued by multiple boy-banders, including one who was sleeping in his car.
Jessica Simpson had plenty to say in her 2020 memoir Open Book , but it seems she’s gone deeper into the vault with some more fascinating recollections for Amazon Original Stories. Check out a couple of the bombshells she drops in Movie Star: They Always Say They're Single .
Jessica Simpson Details Getting Seduced By An A-List Movie Star
The Dukes of Hazzard star penned a new short story about a red carpet event she attended at the 2001 MTV VMAs afterparty. While standing her ground around the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Ja Rule, Jessica Simpson said she was introduced to a major movie star who was a friend of her security guard. She recalled the celebrity, who was “so hot” and apparently not single, giving her a long hug, and she wrote in Movie Star (per People ):
Jessica Simpson said she was swooning when she realized the “Movie Star” was actually trying to seduce her, recalling that he began talking more softly when he leaned closer to her. She continued:
While she didn’t give away the A-lister’s identity in the short story, she did confirm to People that “he is still a movie star!"
Jessica Simpson Reveals ‘NSYNC Boy-Bander Was Sleeping In His Car
As salacious as her movie star run-in was, it was her side story about another celebrity that really caught my attention from the Movie Star: They Always Say They're Single excerpt. The “With You” singer said that at the time she was broken up from her eventual husband and reality show co-star Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees, and was actually being pursued by both a Backstreet Boy and ‘NSYNC member. While she said she was hoping to avoid the unnamed Backstreet Boy at the VMAs afterparty, she dropped an interesting bit about the other pop star, writing:
It’s hard to think that in 2001 any member of ‘NSYNC wouldn’t be able to afford his own place, even if money wasn’t always flowing in for the pop stars. It’s also possible the band’s busy tour schedule justified the boybander’s decision not to lay down roots.
However, are we supposed to believe that one of the biggest names in music at the time was a regular patron of the laundromat? Was he really doing that by choice or trying to save face in front of Jessica Simpson about his financial situation? I would also have assumed that any one of the 'NSYNCers wardrobes back then would have been too expansive (and expensive) to keep in a car. I have so many questions!
Either way, the car life was not appealing to Jessica Simpson, as she said she ended it right then and there, apparently reuniting with Nick Lachey only days later.
