This has to be the oddest pop happening in quite a while - Jessica Simpson was sent off to do a bog-standard troop-rousing tour of Iraq; unfortunately, perhaps because she's not the brightest chisel in the makeover toolkit, she didn't seem to realise that you're not meant to talk about the risks and dangers being faced by American soldiers trying to clear up the mess. In fact, she's started attacking her network for censoring the news:

"It was unbelievable. They [ABC] didn't show a lot of what really went on with the enemy attacks and the shelling," Simpson said. "There was so much stuff that went on and somehow the tapes got mysteriously misplaced. It put everything in perspective for me. It really did teach me the definition of sacrifice. I can't even fathom being out there right now. I was ready to come home."

We can't help but think of the small child in the Emperor's New Clothes, for some reason.
