Jessica Takes Manhattan

Jessica Simpson is in New York City this week to promote her new music video, "A Public Affair" -- it premieres on MTV's "TRL" today.

Cameras caught Jessica headed to a photo shoot downtown, wearing a flowing green dress and mugging for the cameras. She had her stylist, Ken Paves, by her side.

Later on, photogs caught up with her again, and the blonde bombshell loudly declared, "I love New York!"

We're particularly eager to see Jessica on TRL today -- will MTV's Vanessa Minnillo, Nick Lachey's new squeeze, be on hand to interview her? That would be uncomfortable. Check back later to find out.
