MVP of the Week:
Every week, our "most valuable piece"

Jessica Simpson

She's got the voice of an angel, a body for sin, and--as if it could get any better--she's a confirmed virgin! For her sophomore album, former Britney-wannabe Jessica Simpson has also received a make-over--complete with skirt-shortening and cleavage baring--that helps her live up to the set's name: "Irresistible."

Apparently Jessica is being hand-groomed by Sony head-honcho Tommy Mattola to be his company's answer for the Mariah-less blues. Maybe it's a natural, given that her breakthrough single, "I Wanna Love You Forever," received across-the-board comparisons  

to Carey, a.k.a., the former Mrs. Mattola.

While others in her genre--the Christinas and Britneys--were showing skin to win, Jessica won audiences over with her talent and purity. This devout Christian and Preacher's daughter has gone on record speaking out about the evils that are Britney's (alleged) implants. She was also the first of the pop princesses to go on record saying she's a virgin and will stay that way until marriage. (Perhaps this attributes to the rumors circulating which say she and her boyfriend, 98 Degrees' Nick Lachey, are splitsville.)

Whether or not her second disc pushes her to superstardom--or drags her to obscurity--has yet to be seen. In the meantime, she'll have to be content with our MVP of the Week honors. 

And, Jessica, since Nick couldn't get the job done . . .
