Simpson's Excuse -- I Had an Off Night

2/6/2009 3:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jessica Simpson is already explaining her reportedly bizarre, calamity-filled, lyric-forgetting performance in Michigan last night -- chalking the whole thing up to an "off night."

Her rep tells TMZ, "Jessica had an off night. She's a perfectionist and wanted to start some songs over. She always wants to give the best performance for her fans."

Jess' recent wave of bad press continued this morning when a Grand Rapids Press editor who attended the show claimed the singer forgot her lyrics, struggled with her ear monitors, mumbled through songs, fought back tears and asked her band to re-start a song.

At one point in the show, Simpson mouthed the words "I'm sorry" to the crowd.

FYI -- no apology has been issued for the years of the other shows she's done.

An apology , along with the words..."I'M RETIRING FROM EVER PERFORMING AGAIN" ...would be just the right thing to say at this point!!!!....Get a clue Jessica.....step back out of the spotlight, your fifteen min. are long over due!!
Stop stealing our money....I know...why dont you and your BF spit out eight babies...that way...you can sit on your azz and just collect money without lifting a finger...."Like the skank mom of eight in Cali."

Anyone, and I mean anyone, who thinks this girl is overweight has a serious issue. Leave her alone! There is not one person who doesn't have a bad at work... I think people are so rude about her. Give her a break and move onto something else already!!!

Fan sympathy for a no talent(that is unless you count her breasts and her looks as talent) act like Jessica Simpson shows just how vacuous, completely lacking in taste or smarts, and totally artificial this generation is that admires her so much. Jessica Simpson is not even worth to carry the used menstrual rags of Pat Benetar, Janis Joplin, or Bonnie Raitt.

She's a 1st class loser. She dumped her first husband because he wasn't goo enough for her. She's a fame whore and will do anything to keep in the limelight. She's a diva who wants everything done for and she spends as much money as she can get her hands on. She thought she'd be the next Dolly Parton, what a laugh. She was supposed to be a christian girl who saved herself for her wedding night, she wouldn't even go for couseling it was beyound her. Nick Lachey has done so much better for himself. He's happy in his own skin. Jessica can't live normally because she doesn't know what it's like to be humble she just expects everything to work out for her. What goes around comes around and she's getting what she deserves!!!!

Simpson was crying, in pain. She's not used to having open sores from her thighs rubbing together. Doesn't she realize that body image is extraordinarily important to her. She cannot withstand media snafus because she doesn't have the talent or respect from the public to ward off attacks. She made her bones because of her body, plain and simple. Now her career is going to fold faster than Shiva on laundry day. F Joe F Ashley
