Jessica Simpson has clapped back after fans became concerned about her weight loss in a Pottery Barn video ad.
“I needed to be in my studio today because this is where I ground myself and heal,” she said on Instagram. “As much as I have learned to block out destructive noise … people’s comments and judgments can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging ‘You will never be good enough.'”
The 42-year-old singer put her super skinny physique on full display in a cheetah-print maxi dress with a thigh-high slit and plunging neckline. In the video, she gives fans a friendly ‘welcome’ to her little girl’s room, which she reveals was designed by both Pottery Barn Kids and herself.
Some fans were worried about her skinny new look and even speculated that she was no longer sober. Jess says she is 5 years sober.
“I woke up at the same time anxious and insecure but also also angry and defensive — like some of you,” she told fans. “I know what works for me and that is to let go and simply sing while looking directly inside the mirror, straight in my eyes to really see and understand myself. I can connect with my heartbeat. I am stable and strong. I am home.”
