Jessica Simpson slams ‘weighty’ taunts by making stage appearance

London, Jan 31: Donning skin-tight leather trousers, Jessica Simpson made a public appearance to blast criticism surrounding her `curvy' body.

The singer's rather `full body' was largely criticised after pictures of her concert in Pembroke Pines, Florida on January 25, were made public.

However, taking the controversy in her stride, Simpson took to the stage again and was seen strutting across the stage in black leather trousers as she opened for Rascal Flatts in Charlottesville, Virginia on January 29.

"I feel like in our world today we focus on so many things that are completely pointless. Please remember, no matter what you go through in life, somebody else might have it harder. So just appreciate," The Daily Express quoted her as telling the crowd.

Although, she didn't say much about her weight directly, but did thank fans for supporting her.

She announced at the end of her set: "Thank you for your support. Stay positive, and pray out loud! I love you guys, good night." (ANI)
