Jessica Simpson Shuts Down Rumors That She Uses Ozempic
Jessica Simpson is no longer allowing the rumor that spread after her viral social media post of last year — where her critics claimed the actress lost so much weight due to her use of Ozempic — slide.
Simpson has decided to not let it slide and put a stop to it. For clarity purposes, Ozempic is a type 2 diabetes drug that has been said to be an extremely effective weight loss drug which is famous among celebrities and influencers.
In a recent interview with “Bustle” which was shared on Thursday, July 6, the actress addressed the long overdue rumors and set the record straight on whether or not she uses Ozempic. Simpson said, “Oh Lord. I mean, it is not [Ozempic],” before revealing her secret, “It’s willpower.”
The “Newlyweds” star went on to say, “I’m like, do people want me to be drinking again? Because that’s when I was heavier. Or they want me to be having another baby? My body can’t do it.”
Jessica Simpson — How Simpson Feels About The Whole Body Scrutiny
The “Open Book” author went on to say that despite all the scrutiny and criticism about her body, she won’t let it pull her down although it hurts. “Am I going to let the negativity derail me? No, I’m too old for that. I am too connected to myself right now to let that derail me. It doesn’t mean that it doesn’t hurt,” said Simpson.
She didn’t fail to note how much such comments on social media can affect not just her but also her three children, Maxwell, 11, Ace, 10, and Birdie Mae, 4, which she shares with her husband Eric Johnson. She admitted to people pestering her to make a video and speak out.
The “Irresistible” singer said, “I was going to post a photo because everybody’s down my neck, ‘Jessica, you need to post, Jessica, you need to post.’ I’m like, OK. Then I go to post and I’m like, oh, but let’s go to the FaceApp [first]”
She continued, “What has done that to me? What is that doing to my daughter? What we’re doing on social media is creating this idea of what is beautiful and setting up our lives artificially — to look good for who?”
The 42-year-old went on to share that every change her body has ever experienced, from big to normal to skinny, has helped her a lot, especially with her brand. “I am fortunate to have been every size. For [my] brand, understanding the women [who buy our products], and for my psyche.”
The mom of three then shared how much the public’s interest in her physique baffles her, more especially, since she hasn’t done any form of entertainment in a long while. “It boggles my mind that I’ve stayed relevant and that people are curious, because I have not entertained. I have not entertained at all.”
