We see Jessica Simpson go to the mall, the grocery store, Starbucks and every place in between thanks to the paparazzi who find these types of mundane tasks interesting. The overexposure for doing nothing causes one to forget about how she became famous in the first place; long-flowing blond hair, incredible curves and a booming voice.
