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.

She deserves whatever comes her way after the way she dissed Carrie Underwood. At least Carrie has talent, Jessica has made a career of acting like a sexpot and dumb blonde. We all know she has no real talent, just clever packaging and PR reps, etc.

so maybe she is dyslexic and can't read the words to the songs on the board?

Try as she might, she is just not cut out for this buisness. She will always be a B rated singer/actress. Hard to say but true.

I think some people have too much time on their hands! If it makes you feel better about yourself to make fun of someone else then that's pretty sad. And what is sadder is that I come to TMZ!

Yes, Tori is right. Jessica is a spoiled brat. Her parents never made her do anything. She never finished high school. No wonder she didn't know what Chicken of the Sea is. She has always messed up her songs. All she did on Newlyweds was lie on the couch. She has no work ethic. She treated Nick like trash and was rude to everyone. She's a hypocrite for being s "Christian" and then whores around behind Nick's back. Karma's a b*tch.

Looks like a Britney Spear's type meltdown. When will she shave her head?? When will she show us her privates?? When will she pick up men in the 7/11 men's room??

She's no professional. At least she's consistent about it. Perfectionist?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Attention is what she appears to crave, good or bad. Go away, quit whining.

Reality check: How many people get on this site to "be nice"? Wake up, crybabies, if you can't stand your fav star being disemboweled, better go on the to "People" magazine site where the ass kissing is de riguer.. So, this vacuous T&A model tried "Christian music" - then she realized she was a whore, so tried "Pop" music. Fail. Then, country music - daddy told her anyone can succeed at THAT!!! uh, Nope. Worse, she looks like she's trying to open her mouth wide enough to eat a whole fried chicken when she sings. Painful to watch. Anyone paying to see her - well, u get what u deserve. Fat though, Can't go there. She is a little thick, but that's not why I find her objectionable. She is pathetic. Can't act can't sing and is pathetically co-dependent and obviously needs a man to make her feel validated. Just get married and have 5 kids already and give those milkers some REAL use.
