Jessica Simpson’s husband quit drinking to help her on journey to sobriety

Jessica Simpson’s husband Eric Johnson “gave up drinking” when the singer “hit rock bottom” amid her battle with alcohol and drugs.

The star has opened up on her struggle with addiction in her new memoir, Open Book, an excerpt of which appeared in People magazine, and when the 39-year-old embarked on her difficult journey to sobriety in 2017, Eric “gave up drinking the second (she) did” to support his wife.

“It was like no biggie (for him), and he hasn’t gone back or looked back,” Jessica wrote. “It’s just the way he is. He’s a very selfless and loving person who is the most incredible father on the planet.”

The With You singer married former football star Eric in 2014, and the couple shares daughters Maxwell, seven, and 10-month-old Birdie, and son Ace, six.

In previous snippets released via the publication, Jessica said she realised she’d hit rock bottom when she found herself drinking alcohol before Maxwell’s 7.30 am school assembly.

Revealing she’d “already had a drink” before heading to the ceremony, Jessica went on to recall how she “zoned out” later in the day when she was dressed up as Willie Nelson by her team for Halloween.

When asked if she wanted to get her children ready, the star realised she wasn’t able to.

“I was terrified of letting them see me in that shape,” Jessica wrote. “I am ashamed to say that I don’t know who got them into their costumes that night.”

Open Book hits shelves 4 February.

Hayley Williams: “Simmer”

The possibility of a Hayley Williams solo album has been on the horizon since the very beginning. In 2003, the 14-year-old Williams was signed as a solo artist to Atlantic Records, which envisioned her as a Top 40 pop singer, à la Avril Lavigne. She insisted on being in an alternative rock band. She won. And so, alongside the rest of Paramore, she wrote empowering anthems for misanthropic teens to mosh and rip their tights to.

The first word of Williams’ new debut solo single, “Simmer,” is an enunciated “rage.” It hangs in the air like a provocation before she finishes: “… is a quiet thing.” There are flashes of anger here—a surprise use of the word “fucker”—but by its own admission, the song operates at low temperature. There is no distorted, thrashing guitar; instead, it’s accented by watery harp and ominous vocal harmonies. “Oh, how to draw the line between wrath and mercy?” Williams asks, before murmuring, “Wrap yourself in petals/Petals for armor.” The concept of shielding oneself with softness is a mature—and natural—progression from reactionary fury, but it’s not a very exciting one. Between the song’s misty ambiance and the music video of Williams bolting through the forest, I couldn’t shake the feeling that she’s been here before: In 2008, when Paramore recorded a song for the Twilight film series. Like a soundtrack song, “Simmer” sets a mood and asks some hazy rhetorical questions—but too often, this story feels as though it could be passed off to anybody.
