Jessica Simpson hasn't been having a great couple of weeks. Everyone was talking about her fuller curvy figure after she gained some weight and now she just had a meltdown on stage. Singer/Actress Jessica Simpson struggled through her act opening for another country band, Rascal Flatts Thursday night at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids.
There were restarts of songs, forgotten lyrics and some bizarre admissions to the audience regarding Simpson's relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Simpson apparently left the stage in tears as she fought to keep her composure... half way through the song she just quits singing all together.
Jessica Simpson Meltdown
Jessica Simpson shocked fans at a concert in Michigan on Thursday night with a series of onstage blunders - with the star eventually walking off in tears.
The singer was opening for Rascal Flatts at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but the 38-minute show was riddled with embarrassing errors which eventually forced her to apologize to the audience.
Simpson is said to have struggled with her in-ear audio monitors throughout the performance and seemed to lose her place in several songs, forgetting the lyrics to her recent single Come on Over.
The star also stopped during the intro to her Pray Out Loud track, asking her band start over, before mouthing the word "sorry" to the crowd, telling the 8,000-strong audience, "My voice is weak tonight."
While introducing her closing song, Do You Know, Simpson admitted wishing she could "walk off the stage" and at the end of the gig, she thanked her band for "having her back", before appearing to walk off in tears.
One concert-goer tells the Grand Rapids Press, "I felt bad for her tonight. It was uncomfortable to watch." source
