15Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson is a singer and actress that everyone knows the name of — but not many people can actually name things that she's released. Her first album, Sweet Kisses, was released in 1999. The album was designed to be "anti-sex appeal" as a direct contrast

to the albums released by artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Simpson's debut album sold over 4 million copies — but that wasn't good enough for her record company. She was rebranded into a Britney Spears knockoff, and critics slammed her for selling out.

Simpson had declared at the start of her career that she would remain abstinent until marriage but quickly turned herself into a sex icon for fame. Her role as Daisy Duke in the film The Dukes of Hazzard was highly sexual, which led to her releasing a music video for the song These Boots Are Made For Walkin'. The video is nothing short of softcore p*rn.

Jessica Simpson stopped being famous around the time her sister, Ashlee Simpson, stopped being famous. If you remember, Ashlee Simpson fell out of the spotlight almost immediately following a lip-syncing performance that went horrendously wrong on Saturday Night Live. Apparently, Hollywood doesn't care for phonies.
