New York Hearts Jessica

It's apparent Jessica Simpson's fame definitely hasn't faded since "Newlyweds" went off the air. The blonde bombshell is currently in New York promoting her new single "A Public Affair."

One of Simpson's stops included an appearance on MTV's TRL Wednesday afternoon where VJ Vanessa Minnillo was nowhere to be found (because of her current relationship with Nick Lachey? hmmmm). After the show hundreds and hundreds of fans with cell phone cameras in hand lined the streets and sidewalks to catch a glimpse of the pop star.

As Jessica left the building, the screaming erupted and police could only hold back the crazed crowd for a short while before the mob broke free and bum rushed the singer's bodyguards. Jessica was quickly rushed to the car as the swarm of people crushed in.
