Jessica Simpson -- who famously confused tuna with chicken because the label said "Chicken of the Sea" -- knows what she wants out of her next relationship: A guy with brains.

"I don't want to get bored," she tells Extra in an interview airing Friday. "I can bore out pretty easily, so I love intellectual men ... people that will always keep me intrigued."

"I definitely love a spiritual man -- somebody that is going to always inspire me," says the singer, who was dumped by Tony Romo the day before her 29th birthday in July. "And, you know, I love artistic men -- somebody that really understands their art."

Simpson recently returned from India - with a Henna "tattoo" - where she filmed more scenes for her upcoming VH1 reality show, The Price of Beauty.

"I couldn't have had this journey at a better time in my life -- to seek out beauty, to seek out confidence, and to seek out the power of a woman," says the singer, whose fluctuating weight has been criticized this year.

She insists she doesn't let the negativity bring her down.

Says Simpson, "It really is about who I am and what I want to become, and what's going to make the best version of myself."
