In another controversial revelation, singer Jessica Simpson wrote in her book Open Book how Tommy Mottola, Thalia’s husband, told him that he should lose weight when he sought to sign her as an artist
United States.- Jessica Simpson held on to diet pills for 20 years after producer Tommy Mottola, Thalia’s husband, told her that she should lose weight at the beginning of her career, the singer said in her revealing Open memoir Book.
In 1997, Simpson traveled to New York with the hope that her success in local singing competitions would become a great musical career.
According to an excerpt from the book published by People, the new mother and fashion mogul sang Amazing Grace before the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment. That day was Jessica’s 17th birthday.
He wanted to sign me. And then he said, ‘You have to lose 15 pounds (7 kilos),’ “the singer wrote.
What? I measured 1.60 and weighed 53.5 kilograms, “Simpson recalled.
Despite the impression of the interpreter at the request of the producer, Jessica says that Mottola told him:
That’s what it will take to be Jessica Simpson. ”
After that, the nascent pop star “immediately” underwent a strict diet and “began” to “take diet pills,” which he did for 20 years.
Simpson also says that in addition to weight loss, the firm asked him to “show more skin. “
I began to hear voices in my head when I was alone at night, waiting for the sleeping pill to have an effect: ‘Do more squats, fat butts’, “the singer recalled.
By the time we released the single from my second album, Irresistible , it had dropped to 47 kilos. Everyone told me how good he looked, but I couldn’t enjoy it because I was hungry, “Simpson added.
Jessica Simpson has impacted with the revelations contained in the Open Book, such as her confession about having been sexually abused by a friend of her parents, which contributed to her abusing alcohol and pills.
