Review: The Early 2000s Would've Been Nothing Without Jessica Simpson

These days, you probably encounter her most in relation to her very cute clothing line and very cute children. But back in the 2000s, Simpson obviously rose to fame as a pop vocalist and celebreality TV show icon.

In honor of the star's birthday on July 10, The Huffington Post took a look back at some of the most defining moments of the first era of Simpson's career. Take a walk down memory lane. A classic throwback to Jessica's early innocent girl vibe.

The song debuted in 1999, a wholly more innocent year of history that also included the release of "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Never Been Kissed." Simpson was only 19 at the time, which might make you rethink a lot of things.

On the list of very important turn of millennia goings on, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's romance ranks high. Their early '00s chemistry is hard at work in this video, in which Simpson yearns for Lachey and imagines them walking around together near some trees.

The most famous scene of the show came in its very first episode, when Jessica gets confused about whether Chicken of the Sea tuna is tuna or chicken. The mistake blew up the celebrity news cycle and, we would argue, solidified Jessica's ditzy blonde public persona of the time.
