March 26, 2000 - Recently we
checked out a lot of the rumors that have been floating on the groupiecentral.com
message boards specifically related to Nick. As with all the boy bands,
there are allegations of a sexual nature for all the band members, surprisingly
with Justin, regarded by most as the homely one, as getting the most 'action'.
There are some mean-spirited comments on Nick & Jess but remember that
a hangout for groupies is not a place were Jessica and her abstinence values
would be well received.
26, 2000 - We found some great pics of Nick and Jess when they attended
and performed at the premiere of Here on Earth. There are four pics from
their arrival at the LA event.
March 20, 2000 - The MTV
Fanatic episode with Jessica Simpson was taped last Thursday, we'll let
you know when it will be aired.

today's issue of USA Today for a lengthy piece on Jennifer by Elysa Gardner.

label, and a her abstinence.

Jessica are on the cover of Seventeen this month, what's more, the
two are featured in a special online interview as well with some great
February 15, 2000 - Plenty
of interesting stuff from Jessica's Valentine's Day chat on MSN. Jess says
she's signed with WB for a show that may have a pilot beginning this fall,
her 15 year old sister will be co-starring. She also said that her record
company and Nick were supportive of her going public about her and Nick's
relationship, and who can blame them, it seemingly has been a boon for
both their careers to this point. Jess says she'll be working on a new
album come end of summer. Other tidbits from Jess... Nick does catch flack
about being unable to make sweety monkey love with Jessie, she'd love to
do a duet with Christina Aguilera, and she says Ricky Martin is the nicest
guy she's ever met.
February 13, 2000 - If you
saw Saturday Night Live last night you'd have noticed that Jessica
Simpson's virginity was parodied in which girls who professed to being
pure actually weren't and the agony that their boyfriends go through. This
is the first attack at Jessica we've seen at abstracts.net, but we guess
its something to expect as her popularity rises.
February 12, 2000 - Nick
and Jess were on the NBA Team-up All Star show Saturday doing a duet for
their hit Where You Are. Jessica was sporting a Steve Francis jersey,
who plays for the Houston Rockets. Nick was in a Miami Heat warm-up outfit.
Jessica had these HUGE earpieces on and in the middle of the performance
one fell out. Not sure why she was wearing these so we'll have to look
February 6, 2000 - In a snow
bound lovefest, Jessica and Nick hosted a Video Snowdown and sang a duet
together in Big Bear Lake, California. We think the only question is when
is Nick going to pop the question, considering the fact that Jess is 'holding
out' we'd suspect very soon!

Simpson appears on MTV showing off her diamond bracelet given as a gift
by boyfriend and fellow musician Nick Lachey.
December 29, 1999 - Jessica
Simpson provides a harsh critique of her own album in Amazon.com's reviews
section, after many Amazon customers gave rather backhanded compliments
of the CD, giving it 4 of 5 stars. Quoting Jessica "Remember this is my
DEBUT album... My next album will feature much more emotional and inspiring
songs. My first album, though nice, was rather "juvenile" Await my next
album, and You wont be Dissappointed! ~**Jess" [editor's note: we'll concur
with Jessica here, the same criticisms were given to Mariah Carey on her
initial release. Jessica is still only 19 years old so she has much maturing
to do as an artist, but shows great promise and great 'eye appeal'.]
December 14, 1999 - Jessica
Simpson is forced to cancel the rest of her tour opening for Ricky Martin
due to illness.
