On her upcoming album, Do You Know, one of her songs, "Remember That," tells the story of an abusive relationship. Simpson tells the magazine, "There's nothing on my album that you're gonna hear that I don't relate to or that I haven't experienced. Because the only way I know how to sing is from life experience." When asked if she was physically abused, the 28-year-old singer responded, "I don't want to talk about it, but I have definitely experienced abuse in a way that I would tell people to take their heart and run."

Despite the dark period of her life following her divorce from Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson has found love again, in Dallas Cowboy's quarterback Tony Romo. Simpson tells the magazine, "Most of the guys I dated were captivated by my heart but they had different ways of trying to get to me. Tony understands me. He appreciates my talent. He's the first person I've spiritually connected with. I'm a girl that loves to be in love. I love love!"
