For the record, Jessica Simpson has knocked out seven studio albums, starred in two reality shows, played in six feature films, and she heads a billion-dollar fashion empire. So what’s the next business move for the 30-year-old star? Broadway? Of course not!
“A line of popsicles! A popsicle would be really good right now,” Simpson told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column while being honored as Style Icon of the Year at Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood party on Tuesday evening.
Simpson said popsicles definitely trump a long Broadway run, the timeworn venue for actors and singers looking to leave their comfort zone.
“[I wouldn’t do Broadway] because I like to always switch it up, I can’t stay in a regimen,” she said. “A line of popsicles would be a lot easier.”
Putting business aside, Jessica is also excited about being a bride-to-be. But her future husband, NFL player Eric Johnson, better watch out!
“I’m planning my own, who doesn’t plan their own wedding?,” she said. “The best part is that my groom will say ‘I do.’”
Once she’s hitched, her husband may want to watch out, as Simpson plans to go down Nicole Richie‘s TMI Twitter route.
“I do love Twitter, and I would say one of my favorite people to follow is Nicole Richie,” she said. “I think Nicole Richie is always straight up, really funny. She makes me laugh all the time, and she posts cool pics and makes fun of her husband, and I love it.”
Although buzz about which celebrities could join Simon Cowell’s new show The X Factor is already going strong, a new name has been added to the mix. Jessica Simpson is a frontrunner to become one of the judges alongside Cowell, a show insider tells PEOPLE.
“There [are] loads of conversations happening at the moment,” says the source. “No one has been offered a judging role yet as new names keep coming forward who want the role, but there are some frontrunners and it’s fair to say Jessica is one of them. She’s very keen.”
Simpson, 30, has the skills needed for this particular format, which features a $5 million recording contract as the grand prize, says the insider. Still, there are a lot of factors that go in to making the final choice.
“She knows what she is talking about [and] is talented and likable,” the source says. “But Simon’s not in a rush to decide. The judges have to mentor on The X Factor – it’s more than just turning up for a few hours a week to appear on TV.”
The judges will have to “work with contestants on music, dancers, styling,” the source continues. “It’s a lot of work.”
Jessica Simpson leaves the Ritz Hotel in New York City looking fabulous in a short dress, a black waist-length jacket, and black high heels. The music sensation and actress is all smiles as she heads out to enjoy her day in the city.
In case you didn’t know, Jessica has been rumored to be a judge on Simon Cowell’s stateside version of ‘The X Factor.’
Jessica Simpson is working hard at getting in shape before her upcoming wedding to fiance Eric Johnson.
30-year-old Jessica first tried out a vegan diet over a year ago while filming her TV show The Price Of Beauty and admitted that combined with drinking certain types of tea, the extreme diet ‘shocked’ her system.
She then met Eric, who became a vegan after retiring from professional sport, and she adopted some of his healthy eating habits.
The singer even admitted to having a vegan thanksgiving dinner last year, telling chat show host Jimmy Fallon: ‘After getting out of the NFL, he went to this healer and is very healthy.’
‘For Thanksgiving we have to make a Tofurkey! It doesn’t sound right! It’s gonna be jiggly and weird.’
After becoming engaged in November 2010, Jessica enlisted the services of Tracy Anderson to help her get into shape before her wedding to the former NFL player.
She is believed to be working out four times a week for 75 minutes at a time with the fitness expert, who has worked with the likes of Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.
But her friends have said that Jessica has no intention of becoming skinny, she just wants to be in good shape when she walks down the aisle.
One said: ‘She wants to look healthy, not super-skinny. She’s seeing results with her new workout program. She really loves it.’
The vegan diet also appears to just be an occasional thing for Jessica who when asked if she had gone vegan full time recently, responded: ‘I’m from Texas…I’d fry steak.’
