Jessica Simpson has a message to those who think she wore concealer or blush on April's Marie Claire cover: "I absolutely was not wearing makeup," she told UsMagazine.com Monday at a Good Housekeeping bash in NYC. "Look at the cover — you can tell! My nose has been broken a couple of times. If you look at a retouched cover of me and you look at the Marie Claire cover, you can see there's a big difference."
Why no makeup?
"I really wanted to show women that I'm just a normal person," she said. "I take the pictures. I don't know what the magazine is going to do with it after that. I don’t know what the photographer is going to do with it after that, so it was important for me to make sure that they absolutely did not retouch. I just wanted people to see how I really am."
She also told Us she was wearing a wig in those infamous photos she posed on Twitter Monday.
"I was just having fun," she told Us of wearing a 60s-inspired pixie cut wig.
Though her mother Tina told Us her daughter would never chop off her hair, Jessica told Us: "Never say never! Maybe, but not right now!"
She also filled Us in on her love life, echoing previous remarks that she'd like to date a doctor or a chef.
"I’m just looking for a normal man!" she told Us. "Just somebody that’s normal! That's it!"
