Jessica Simpson

Coming to the defense of Jessica Simpson, John Mayer wrote on his blog about why fans shouldn’t slam Jessica and yadda yadda yadda.

I have never known anyone to have more pride in their home state and their upbringing in it than Jessica Simpson has in Texas. I don’t really follow sports, but I have played some of my biggest and best concerts in your state, and having witnessed how dynamic the spirit there is, I’m betting emotions are running high right about now.

All witty barbs, blogs, and fashion policing aside, that girl loves Texas more than you know. It’s one of her most defining traits as a person. So please don’t try and take that away from her. (You probably wouldn’t be able to, but it’s less work for all involved.)

I just thought it would mean something coming from the guy who has the absolute least to gain from this. And if I’m out of line in having written it, too bad. I can spare a Wednesday’s worth of bad press if it means sticking up for a good soul.

I’m giddy that John Mayer thinks Dallas Cowboy fans will read this and think, “Gosh, you know. He’s right. Maybe we shouldn’t be using Jessica Simpson as a scapegoat for our team’s crappiness.” The more realistic Dallas Cowboy fan response would be to say, “John who? That fairy with the Wonderland song said what?,” and then pelt him really hard with a bunch of frozen footballs.
