Pop star Jessica Simpson
has baffled fans with a wordy new Internet missive in which she rambles on about artist Michelangelo. The singer/actress, who is best known for mistaking Chicken of The Sea tuna for chicken on her reality show Newlyweds
, appears to have developed a love for culture during her recent trips to Italy and France.
In a new message on her fansite SweetKisses.com, she writes, "I visited many museums, and have been reading about different artists. I have also been writing a lot in my journal recently. I was reading a book about Michelangelo and there were 2 quotes that caught my attention - `I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.' - Michelangelo. `Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.'"
The star admits the two quotes inspired her to pen her own thought-provoking missive.
She then writes, "Sometimes we are all so afraid to be honest with ourselves because we know that honesty will lead us somewhere off the path of the life we've mapped out in our minds. Today, I challenge us to ask ourselves this... What if we allow our fear to provoke us into action? Can facing our fear be what walks us to somewhere better? I do not have your answers, but in the quest to find my own, I've discovered somewhere worth traveling to...
"In my life, I ignore my fears too often, but then I'm left with nothing to challenge the best of me. I just remain cowering from my true identity. There is no discovery."
