Singer Jessica Simpson Shows Off New Curves

Jessica Simpson showed off new curves as she performed songs from her country album Do You Know at a concert over the weekend. At Sunday's Kiss Country Chili Cookout in Pembroke Pines, Fla., the singer bounced on stage in high-waisted jeans and a double belt.

She has long had her weight ups and downs but said she never minded when she packed on a few extra pounds. In a 2007 interview with Harper's Bazaar, she recalled a conversation she had with pal Ken Paves.

"Do you think the guys in here are all really looking at all those skinny girls and thinking, Wow, I want to get with her? Or are they looking at the girls with the curves and thinking, Yeah, I want to get with her!" Simpson said.

"Curves are better," Simpson added. "I don't get the whole rail thing. It's not good for your heart, it's not good for your mind; it's emotionally destructive, it really is."
