Jessica Simpson has hired Madonna’s longtime manager Caresse Henry to co-manage her career along with her father, Joe Simpson.
“I see the tremendous talent of Jessica Simpson and believe that she has a long music career ahead of her. I look forward to working with her and evolving her as an artist,” said Caresse.
The blonde vocalistress will still be managed by her father in some areas of her career, and she is currently in the studio working on her third album, due in late spring.
“We are thrilled to have Caresse on the team,” said Joe Simpson. “The experience she brings will be a tremendous asset for Jessica’s career. She did good for Madonna right?”Part of the reason Caresse Henry is joining jessica Simpson’s management team may have to do with Jessica’s last album, ‘Irresistible’. The set was released in June 2001, just a few months prior to events of September 11, which put a damper on music sales overall.
The singer told a webzine that she wasn’t very comfortable with the set to begin with. “My last album didn’t really reflect me as a person,” she said.
“It was about, you know, heartbreak and you cheating on me, and it just wasn’t me. That’s not me at all.”
“I’m like a hopeless romantic who’s very positive and, you know, I think that this is the way it’s supposed to be.”
