Jessica vs. Mariah

There is all this hoopla.  And I don't get it at all.

To read the Yahoo article, click here.

Apparently Jessica Simpson's brand new single from her yet-to-be-released Christmas album is stepping on Mariah Carey's toes.

I'll admit, I listened to the new song, "My Only Wish."  (I didn't have to listen to Mariah's, I know it by heart and sing it at the top of my lungs when it comes on 98.3.)  There are definite similarities in the lyrics and instrumentals.

But honestly?  No comparison.  Sorry Jess.

Mariah's song, "All I Want for Christmas is You" has been around for 16 years.  Mariah herself, even though I'm definitely not a huge fun, has much more star power and longevity than Jessica.

And I don't like to say anything about people's voices, because I know it's just a preference thing...but I really can't stand hearing Jessica Simpson sing!  It just sounds fake to me.

So is there really an issue here?  I don't think so.  What do you think??

No one can touch Mariah!! Jess is a joke in terms of singing. I love how being a celebrity suddenly means you can sing! haha
