Jessica Simpson’s Weight-Gate has claimed its first victim – the singer’s upcoming Self magazine cover, at least according to Us Weekly.
Jessica was allegedly scheduled to shoot a cover for the fitness magazine, upon whose cover she appeared in 2007, but chose not to bare her body in the midst of the uproar over her new fuller figure, Us Weekly reported.
Self magazine Editor-In-Chief Lucy Danziger, however, told Access that a Jessica cover was in the works, but has stalled over scheduling conflicts.
“Self would love for Jess to be on our cover,” she told Access. “We’ve had discussions about it but we couldn’t find a date… she’s very busy.”
Jessica might not be headed to newsstands, but the singer is on her way to Nashville, Access has learned.
The pop star-turned-country singer is set to join Julianne Hough, Kellie Pickler and LeAnn Rimes on Feb. 11 to announce the 44th annual Academy of Country Music Awards nominees.
