NOW we know why Jessica Simpson was in TEARS at the Kennedy Center Honors. She had just found out about Lane Garrison’s tragic auto accident. (One teenage male passenger was killed and two girls were injured.) Lane was like a brother to her – they grew up in the same town and when he had problems at home, he went to live with Jessica’s dad Joe Simpson when he was a teenager. Simpson helped make Lane a star like he did his daughters. And Lane loved being famous. When he went to Ralph’s Saturday night to buy pita chips, two teen girls saw him and got VERY excited. They begged him to come to their high school party to impress their friends. Lane couldn’t resist the flattery. Just how much he had to drink before and during the party will be apparent when his blood test results come back. When Lane wanted to leave, the girls begged the boy who was killed to come along because they were a little afraid of Lane. The joy ride ended abruptly when his SUV crashed into a tree. Acquaintances of Lane are predicting that the blood test will show more than alcohol was in his system. Right now Lane’s in hiding and Jessica is still distraught.

    I don’t believe for a second that’s why Jessica botched her tribute to Dolly Parton. She knows she’s not in the same league as those being honored or those other singers. She simply blew it!! Quit making excuses for her. Her dad has pushed Jessica and Ashley way beyond their capabilities, and that’s why they crater–can’t handle the pressure of an important appearance.

    I agree, jessica fuked it up bec she is talentless, as is beyonce. they have just been pushed by good ol dad. beyonce will get it good tho, bec the idol reject is a much better singer and actress than her. boo hoo- It is sad about the actor and the accident. very sad that all those kids were killed or seriously hurt. The actor is a showboat, loser who has quite a jail record with his mom even turning him in at one point.

    I think she messed up & is using the accident as an excuse. If she was really upset over it she would not look so happy in the picture above.
    People mess up. Big deal.

    OMG – who cares? At least she’s not some trashy whore like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. Those girls give us a bad name.
    Jessica might not be the brightest or most talented in the world, but at least she’s not a skank.

    I don’t buy the Garrison car crash excuse for Simpson flubbing the song, since he wasn’t even injured in the accident.
    I think it’s more likely that her nerves got the better of her, and she froze. It happens. (At least she didn’t break out into a jig.)
    As far as the real story on the Garrison situation, go to and read the comments from the BH High kids who were at the party.
    They’re telling a very different story than Harland Braun, who’s got his work cut out for him if he’s planning on playing the ‘my client has temporary amnesia’ card.

    Wasn’t this on an episdoe of Entourage?

    What was he troubled with anyway? Seems like his real problems didn’t start until…let’s say 10 years later!
    Some of the blogs are saying that Jessica’s tear-filled performance with Dolly Parton was fueled by the Garrison accident, and others are saying it was a wardrobe malfunction.
    I also read that Garrison’s lawyers say that someone “slipped something in his drink”– err, yea, I guess the bartender “slipped” rum into his coke. Just a theory, people.

    Beyonce is talentless? She can definitely sing and regardless of Jennifer Hudson having a stronger voice, did you or anyone else in here buy her debut album? Me thinks not. That’s why it flopped.

    Beyonce has as muc h talent as a turd in a toliet,looks and sounds like one as well,with her screeching off key voice,to her ghetto talk,shes nothing but pure ghetto trash and dresses like a cheap cocktail waitress in riverside.Just because a cd sells doesnt make it good.As a matter of fact this cd isnt selling as well as her 1st one,could it be due to payola made her first cd a hit?Shes repulsive and I for one cant wait for her and her cheap weave to be gone back to the ghetto with her funky mom and dad,and worthless sister..OOHGA BOOHGA

    Is that why she messed up? Eh, I don’t know. Sounds kind of suspicious to me.

    The old show biz adage, ‘the show must go on’ rings true with genuine entertainers…I’ve worked with dancers who went on stage with broken toes & bleeding feet, and singers who had real personal problems, and you would never have known. Jess just wasn’t up to the night; she was in the big leagues there. She’s a B-lister, but will still be popular.

    Shame on whoever let Jessica “do over” her song for the TV showing! I’m not going to watch, and I hope no one else does either! It’s just not right! What was filmed should be shown, not some performance put on after the show was over. That’s show biz, Ms. Simpson. You blew it!

    The truly great performers take their grief and make their performances more connected, thrilling, and exciting. Diana Ross years ago found out her mother died the day of a performance and gave one of the best concerts of her life.

    Vanessa, that’s so uncalled for. You may hate Jessica but you don’t anybody dead.

    What exactly is her talent? It certainly isn’t singing and acting and those corny songs….WTF?

    I think you need to check your facts…first of all they did not meet him at a Ralphs, second of all, what was a 26 year old doing with 2 15 year old girls and a 17 year old boy. Additionally, Jessica’s prayers are with Garrison, give me a break, how about her prayers being with the friends and family of the three KIDS involved, one who is still in critical condition, and one who is dead.

    This story is so bogus. You don’t even TRY to get it right. Jessica screwed up because Jessica didn’t prepare. No professional of her age should need cue cards for the lyrics to her song. She didn’t want to take time out of her busy shopping/self-promoting schedule in order to learn the freaking lyrics. She’s a moron. You totally pulled this story out of your a**.

    It was staged.. Lifetime fan and she can’t remember the song? Um,she wanted extra attention and perks.. singining it solo to perfection later, to meet the star to humbly appologize.. yeah right sure.. to hopefully star in Dolly Pardon’s life story that’s to be filmed..

    I agree with you 7:25 PM – she did not prepare and needs to realise that showbusiness it takes actually WORK to make it! According to TMZ her mom told her off for her performance and for NOT preparing.

    Enough already. She should have went to rehersals. You messed up in front of the President, who was no doubt asleep, so cheer up.
