Early life

Simpson was born in Abilene, Texas, the daughter of Joe Truett Simpson (a former Baptist youth minister who is now her manager) and Tina Drew. Simpson began singing in her Baptist church choir. At the age of 10, she sang in and won her school talent contest. In 1992, at age 12, she made an unsuccessful audition for The New Mickey Mouse Club, that also starred future pop superstars Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Simpson later attended J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas . She recorded an album over the next three years; however, the label folded before the record could be released. She dropped out in her senior year to tour and promote her demo album, which was funded by her grandmother, Joyce (thus the reason for the name of her 2004 holiday album, Rejoyce: The Christmas Album). She later earned her GED. During this time, she also toured with the Christian Youth Conference circuit performing with Kirk Franklin, God's Property, and CeCe Winans. She and her father sold copies of the album after these performances. Tommy Mottola of Columbia Records later obtained a copy of the album and, thinking she had potential as a pop singer, signed her to a recording contract.

Career

1999-2001: Rise To Fame

Nineteen ninety-nine saw the arrival of pop princesses Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, who each received multi-platinum certificates.. Simpson's label hoped for the same with her. As 1999 came to a close, Simpson released her first single "I Wanna Love You Forever" which became a big hit in the States and peaked at # 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Soon afterwards, her album Sweet Kisses was released to great sales. Simpson toured with boy band 98 Degrees to support her new album. She even had a role in their music video for their hit song "My Everything" as Nick Lachey's love interest. It was then when she met her future husband Nick Lachey, and the two soon began dating. Unlike the other pop princesses, Simpson was very straight forward about her relationship with Lachey. After dating for two years the couple decided to take a break and concentrate on their hectic music careers for the time being. On September 11, 2001, Lachey was supposed to be flying out of New York City with his group 98 Degrees. When Simpson heard of the attacks on the nation coming from the airport she immediately phoned Lachey to find his whereabouts. After this sudden scare the couple knew they wanted a future together and rekindled their relationship.

Meanwhile, her album Sweet Kisses had gone double platinum thanks to the success for her follow-up singles "Where You Are", 1999, a duet with her boyfriend Evan Horne, and "I Think I'm In Love With You, 2001," the latter became Simpson's biggest radio hit at that point and was her first uptempo single to be released. Still, even with her debut album selling 2 million copies, her record label felt that she was still very much less successful than Britney and Christina, who'd gone on to become household names around the globe. It was then when Columbia Records decided that Simpson needed a change for her second album.

The new sound and image helped make "Irresistible" a big hit on the radio, becoming one of the biggest hits of her career and peaking at # 15 on the Hot 100.

Controversy

Simpson received criticism from a Christian group calling itself "The Resistance," for the sexualized image she used in the music video for "These Boots are Made for Walking."[6] In response, Simpson stated, "It didn't really surprise me because I grew up with a lot of that backlash. That's why I didn't end up going into the Christian music industry. I think that if they're really good Christians the judgment wouldn't be there."[7]


Personal life

On October 26, 2002, at age 22, Simpson married Nick Lachey, and later announced that she had remained a virgin until her wedding night. In November 2005, after months of tabloid speculation, Simpson and Lachey officially announced their separation. Simpson filed for divorce on December 16, 2005, citing "irreconcilable differences." The couple's divorce was highly publicized worldwide and was reportedly finalized on June 30.
