Jessica Simpson played dean at the 2015 Teen Vogue Fashion University earlier this week, and in an interview with Extra she dropped this nugget: “Right now, I’m starting a record,” before continuing, “Fashion will always be a part of who I am. If I’m not wearing a good outfit, I can’t sing a good song. So, you know, it kind of all just works together.”

Simpson’s last musical release came in 2010 when she released her seventh studio album, the holiday-themed Happy Christmas; she also released her greatest hits album, Playlist: The Very Best of Jessica Simpson, earlier that year.
