Jessica Simpson jokes about 'breast reduction' reports
Jessica Simpson says she does not plan to undergo a breast reduction, following conflicting reports.
The 31-year-old country and pop singer has been touted for her voluptuous figure and is seen as a sex symbol, a status that was cemented further after she played Daisy Duke in a 2005 film adaptation of "The Dukes of Hazzard."
"Been getting lots of questions about this alleged breast reduction...not to worry..." Simpson Tweeted on Wednesday, September 7, adding that her breasts "aren't going anywhere!"
She later joked that the reports were "UDDERly not true!"
The UK tabloid The Sun and other outlets had recently said that Simpson is "fed up" with her DD breasts and wants to slim down before her wedding to former NFL player Eric Johnson. ABC News later quoted a source familiar with the Simpson's plans as saying that the singer has no plans of getting a breast reduction.
This will also be the second marriage for Simpson. She and her first husband, Nick Lachey, on the MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica", which documented their married life together. The two divorced in 2006. Lachey and television personality Vanessa Minnillo wed in July.
Simpson has in recent years focused on her fashion endeavors. Her collections of apparel, perfume and other products, which are marketed to young women, have raked in almost $1 billion in sales.
The singer plans to launch her own line of diamond jewelry and fine jewelry collection in the fall of 2011 and recently teamed up with celebrity aesthetician Nerida Joy to launch BeautyMint, an online portal that sells anti-aging skincare.
Simpson also plans to lend her fashion business sense to up-and-coming designers on television. She will join Nicole Richie and John Varvatos as a mentor on the NBC reality series "Fashion Star," which will be hosted by supermodel Elle MacPherson. The show debuts on September 19.
