Jessica Simpson's high school 'Chorus Line' performance demands to be seen -- VIDEO

Before the babies, before the tabloids, before the vilified blue jeans — even before Tony Romo and John “sexual napalm” Mayer and Nick Lachey and the multi-million dollar shoe empire, Jessica Simpson was just a regular high school gal in a red leotard performing “The Music and the Mirror” from A Chorus Line.

Now that footage of her theatrical moment has hit the net, it’s pretty much required viewing. Simpson tweeted the video yesterday, adding, “The ultimate #tbt” (That’s Throw Back Thursday for those of you who don’t hashtag your lives), and it’s a pretty potent reminder that, while Simpson was never a pop star of Britney or Christina proportions, she still had some serious pipes. And those dance moves weren’t too shabby, either!

Ashlee Simpson is attempting a comeback, releases teaser of new R-rated song

Chances are you haven’t thought much about Ashlee Simpson since, oh, around 2004, when her embarrassed “yes, I lipsynched” SNL jig introduced a generation to the concept of schadenfreude.

But the artist best known as “Jessica’s Sister” didn’t drop off the face of the earth after her live TV debacle. Over the past eight years, she’s released two more albums, married and divorced Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, spawned a human child named Bronx Mowgli, and starred in The CW’s ill-fated Melrose Place reboot. And now, four years after her last studio release, Simpson is trying to relaunch her music career. Does this mean it’s finally okay to admit that “Pieces of Me” is really, really catchy?

Late yesterday, Simpson uploaded a 50-second teaser of an upcoming music video to  her website. The clip appears above a countdown clock, which reveals that Simpson’s new single — called “Bat for a Heart” — will officially drop Nov. 21. Finally, something to look forward to in these troubled times! Press on only if you’re wearing headphones; as Simpson herself tweeted, “In this tease I do drop the F bomb so you’ve been warned!”

John Mayer talks girlfriends, Gosling, and surgery on 'Watch What Happens Live'

Johnny Depp’s hobo doppelganger John Mayer dropped by the Bravo clubhouse last night to appear on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

The singer, whose Born and Raised hit stores this week, displayed an intense self-awareness that verged on caginess at times. Which is not to say he wasn’t the same goofy guy who wrote about candy lips and bubblegum tongues 10 years ago (witness his doffing of a bedazzled Xtina-style hat).

So what did he have to say about his string of famous ex-girlfriends, the world’s second Sexiest Man Alive, and his recovery from the past year’s vocal troubles?

Andy Cohen wasted no time getting to the juicy questions during his dreaded Plead the Fifth segment. First question: “Shag, Marry, Kill — Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson?” Mayer pled the fifth, insisting in his next question that he doesn’t consider any of his famous exes “the one that got away.”

Then things got real. Because he used his free pass on the first question, Mayer had to name a fellow celebrity with whom to “dip in the man pond.” Mayer qualified, “Full immersion?” That’s affirmative. READ FULL STORY
