The 39-year-old singer wrote a scathing return to former Vogue digital creative director Sally Singer, who recalled a memory of Jessica for an oral history at the Met Gala.
It was 2007 and Jessica was at the event with the boyfriend at the time, John Mayer, but the story told by Singer was described as “inaccurate” and “nauseating” by the angry singer.
At what would have been the Met Gala evening, Vogue published an article to celebrate the event, which was canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With a number of celebrities, designers, and models sharing their memories of the Met Gala, the singer said she remembers that Jessica was about to “fall off” her Roberto Cavalli dress.
It didn’t end there, Singer continued, “At dinner, it was suddenly like, whoa, Jessica Simpson’s breasts are in front of me at the dinner table and they are on a tray and I looked.
“And John Mayer put his hands on them at the dinner table. He kind of reached out and I just remember thinking, “Oh celebrities, feel free to play here. That’s what’s going on. ” “

Jessica had none of this and posted her response on Instagram to set the record straight.
In addition to a photo of Sophia Loren “hurting” Jayne Mansfield at a Hollywood party in 1957, Jessica wrote: “Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) Oral story from #MetBall where I’m ashamed of by # SallySinger. ”
Jessica said that although she is normally above talking about her body, she still felt sorry for this to continue.
She continued, “But in all sincerity, I have persevered in humiliating my own body and internalizing the world’s opinions on it throughout my adult life.
“Reading this eagerly awaited article on the chicest fashion event and having to be humiliated by another woman for breasts in 2020 is nauseating. “
