Rant: Jessica and Those Boots

Jessica Simpson and I are in the biggest fight right now.

She doesn't know it, but it does not minimize my disdain for her at this very moment.

I had no idea that Jessica Simpson would take one of my favorite karaoke tunes and make it available to the pop masses. I like to break out "These Boots Are Made For Walking" after throwing back a few beers. It is a crowd pleaser and a tune that most people forget that they adore.

Now, Jessica Simpson with her good lookin' bod' and her Daisy Duke likeness has taken this retro and hip song and made it all...unfortunate. That is the only word I can use to describe what she has done to this song.

It wasn't bad enough that she shanghaied "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin and "Angel" by Robbie Williams, but now she rips off Miss Nancy Sinatra. Is nothing sacred?

If I didn't know better, I might say that Jessica Simpson has no talent.

Remember when Jessica was all new and shiny and actually SANG? Kind of like Mariah Carey. So unfortunate what a little fame does to their voices. ;)

I need to email you soon. I haven't forgotten about you!
