Jessica Simpson Celebrates Her 37th Birthday By Going Topless

Jessica Simpson just turned 37, and she’s looking hotter than ever. The mom of two, who has previously been ridiculed for her battle with her weight, floated on a pool toy with her top off as she sizzled in the California sun.

The Southern Belle did keep her bottoms on in the pool shot but still made sure her lower half was on prominent display.

“Kiss My Butt 36,” she captioned the photo, as she floated without a care in the world.

The singer turned fashion mogul has struggled with body image issues and bullying from the media for most of her adult life. She admits that she has been every size imaginable, and from that experience, she has learned to make clothing that matches every single woman.

The star slimmed down recently after giving birth to her second child, Ace Knute, three years ago and looks hotter than ever. However, she’s recently stated that she isn’t attempting to be as skinny as possible as she did in her early 20s at the height of her fame. Instead, she simply wants to be healthy and comfortable in her own skin and has said that she doesn’t like when she or her husband, Eric Johnson, are slaves to the gym.

The star has been criticized in the past for her weight but used that to her advantage to team up with Weight Watchers. She ended up having the last laugh as she got slimmer and her wallet got a whole lot fatter.

Jessica Simpson recently said that she is working on new music for the first time in several years. She confessed on an episode of The Ellen Show that her husband had never seen her perform, and she hoped sometime soon she would be able to change that.

The fashion mogul has also been heavily criticized for her ditzy image, but she has proven that she is a lot smarter than people take her for. She has turned her Jessica Simpson brand into a $1 billion fashion empire and even has time to make fun of herself for some of her ditzier public comments.

It looks like Jessica Simpson may be getting the last laugh after all.
