Since major celebrities and global sensations are more often seen in pictures or on the screen, seldom do we get the chance to see them in person, which means we might not experience their company. Thus, it’s not hard to see why Jessica Simpson, one of the biggest singers of her era, would be confused with Britney Spears.

Both being the stars that made the pop music scene of the ’90s so dazzling, along with similarities in their appearance made it hard for people to sometimes tell them apart, which has persisted to this day. But when it comes to what the singer thinks about this situation, she calmly states that she has come to accept it as it is.

Becoming a sensational music artist in their late teens does have a lasting effect on the individual, which can shape their lives going forward. For singer Jessica Simpson, it was fame and stardom that she couldn’t even dream of, especially when she used to perform at Church Choirs before taking the whole world by storm at the age of 17.

But along with her, fellow pop singer Britney Spears was also rising at a meteoric pace, and at one point, she took over the world with more fame and recognition than Simpson.

Thus, it didn’t help that both of these successful stars of the music industry looked so much alike, which also meant that if Spears was getting more popular, Simpson would also be mistaken for her due to their resemblance. Even today, that misunderstanding persists. But thankfully, the singer hasn’t taken it to heart.

In fact, she has come to accept the fact that this is how things are, and probably will be in the future, and she has made peace with this fact. In a recent interview with ET, the Take My Breath Away singer said:

“I mean, that’s my whole life. Not all the time, but I mean, there are similarities and I think that because we both grew up in the business together, it’s easy to mistake us. Brown eyes, blonde hair, Southern.”

Therefore, while it may be a little awkward at times for her to see fans confuse her with her fellow star, it doesn’t seem to bother her as much.
