In bizarre news, Jessica Simpson and Natalie Portman are beefing on social media and we here at Pedestrian.TV are team Simpson.

Hear us out!

So Natalie gave an interview with USA Today about her new movie Vox Lux where she plays Celeste, an international pop singer who survived a school shooting when she was young.

During the interview, Natalie slams Jessica for how she was portrayed in the media way back when and said that Simpson’s style confused her as a teen.

“I remember being a teenager, and there was Jessica Simpson on the cover of a magazine saying ‘I’m a virgin’ while wearing a bikini, and I was confused. Like, I don’t know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl,” she said.

After sussing out the interview where she’s read for filth, Simpson responded with a statement on Twitter which she addressed to Portman.

“I was disappointed this morning when I read that I confused you by wearing a bikini in a published photo taken of me when I was still a virgin in 1999. As public figures, we both know our image is not totally in our control at all times, and that the industry we work in often tries to define us and box us in,” Simpson began.

“However, I was taught to be myself and honour the different ways all women express themselves, which is why I believed then — and believe now — that being sexy in a bikini and being proud of my body art not synonymous with having sex. I have always embraced being a role model to all women to let them know they can look however they want, wear whatever they want and have sex or not have sex with whomever they want. The power lies within us as individuals. I have made it my practice to not shame other women for their choices. In this era of Time’s Up and all the great work you have done for women, I encourage you to do the same.”

Portman later responded by shifting the blame onto the media and how they say “girls and women were supposed to behave.”

She apologises for shaming Simpson and says that she has “nothing but respect for your talent and your voice that you use to encourage and empower women all over the globe.”

Portman’s initial comments were pretty fkn shitty but at least she recognised that she’d fucked up and apologised… sorta.
