Jessica Simpson was not pleased with the comments that pointed out several things in what appeared to be a harmless Pottery Barn video; “haters” pointed out her voice change and weight loss.

The singer appeared in a new Pottery Barn Kids commercial the week before to show fans the impressive interior design of her daughter’s room. When audiences noticed something off about Simpson’s speech or weight, clips of the room were shown, and Simpson did the voice-over.

An Instagram user commented:

“Is she ok?”

Another concerned fan wrote:

“Please tell me I’m not the only one that hears her voice being totally slow…is she ok?!”

Another wrote:

“Blink twice if you need help, Jess.”

Despite the apparent concern, Simpson became “angry” and “defensive” in response to the comments in the now-viral Pottery Barn video, according to reports.

She took to Instagram to vent her frustrations, posting a video clip of herself singing her 2020 song “Party of One” to demonstrate two points: her voice is fine, and her body is not her worth.

Simpson captioned the Instagram post:

“I needed to be in my studio today because this is where I ground myself and heal.”

“As much as I have learned to block out destructive noise…peoples’ comments and [judgments] can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging ‘you will never be good enough.'”

She also stated that she has been alcohol-free for five years. Furthermore, according to reports, Simpson began her weight loss journey long ago, losing 100 pounds three times.

She shared:

“I went to a nutritionist, and I needed to get my eating habits right.

feel like my old self before I had children and all the hormones going wild. I feel younger, actually.”

Simpson has faced criticism in the past, as she noted in her 2020 memoir “Open Book,” and her health has always been a source of contention. She even went so far as to say that her addiction to alcohol and pills was “killing” her.

Simpson, who is 42 years old, is married to Eric Johnson. Maxwell, 10, Ace, 9, and Birdie, 3, are her three children.
