Rick Rubin On What Is A Jessica Simpson

As he tells Esquire magazine:

“I WAS with a group of friends and we were having dinner at Mr Chow in Beverly Hills. When we got there, you couldn’t get in the door because there were so many paparazzi outside – so many that there were fire trucks out there trying to manage the crowd.

We’re sitting at dinner, and the red lights from the fire trucks are lighting up the whole restaurant. It felt like a scene from a war movie. It was insane. We started trying to figure out who was creating this scene.

It was the time of the Coachella Music Festival. Madonna had played Coachella. So we were thinking, maybe it’s Madonna. From there, we just kept throwing out names, trying to figure out who it could be. Finally I got up from the table and I went to find out. And then I came back and I asked my friends, ‘Do you want me to tell you who it is, or do you want to try try guess?’ and someone said, ‘OK, let’s play 20 questions.’

And then someone asked, ‘Is this person famous for being a film star?’ Hmmm, I didn’t know how to answer the questions, either. Yes, she’s been in films. But is that what she’s famous for? I don’t think so, so I decided that answer was no.

And this went on for 20 questions. And the answers were all no. Everybody lost the game – no one could say who it was.

When I really thought about it, this person causing it wasn’t famous for anything that you could really put your finger on. I’m open to the truth, whatever it is.”

The answer? It was Jessica Simpson.

Famous for – you tell us…
