Stop Shaming Me
For My Virgin Bikini Cover

2:15 PM PT — Natalie’s responded to Jessica directly, saying … “I completely agree with you that a woman should be allowed to dress however she likes and behave however she likes and not be judged. I only meant to say I was confused – as a girl coming of age in the public eye around the same time – by the media’s mixed messages about how girls and women are supposed to behave.”
She adds … “I didn’t mean to shame you and I’m sorry for any hurt my words may have caused. I have nothing but respect for your talent and your voice that you use to encourage and empower women all over the globe.”
Jessica called out Natalie Wednesday, saying she’s “disappointed” Natalie is slut shaming her for posing in a bikini, while also boasting about being a virgin.
In a recent interview, Natalie told USA Today, “I remember being a teenager, and there was Jessica Simpson on the cover of a magazine saying ‘I’m a virgin’ while wearing a bikini, and I was confused. Like, I don’t know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl.”
Natalie, who plays a pop star in her new movie, “Vox Lux,” was talking about real-life pop stars and the virgin/vixen paradigms pushed by the music industry in the late 1990s.
Jessica thinks Natalie should know better … telling her, “As public figures, we both know our image is not totally in our control at all times, and that the industry we work in often tries to define us and box us in.”
Jessica further scolds Natalie by writing, “being sexy in a bikini and being proud of my body are not synonymous with having sex.”
The pop star’s social media rant included some shade for Natalie — “I have made it my practice to not shame other women for their choices. I encourage you to do the same.”
