Conclusion

Pro-social Content

The singer considers growing old with a spouse her romantic ideal on "Sipping on History." Simpson tells women battered by words and physical abuse to practice tough love when a heel comes home ("Remember That"). She also counsels fans to take their fears and doubts to God and "Pray Out Loud." "Still Beautiful" determines to see value and loveliness in life's disappointments.

Objectionable Content

Rather than prescribing conflict resolution, "Might as Well Be Making Love" recommends sex as a diversion for a fighting couple. That song alludes to physical intimacy with no talk of rings, as do "Come on Over," "Do You Know" and the bitter breakup saga "When I Loved You Like That" (perhaps playing the other woman, Simpson rages, "Pour your scotch on the rocks and drink your misery down/Go home and make love to her, and picture me"). A girl fantasizes about cursing out a cad on "Still Don't Stop Me," yet realizes she's hooked on him.

Summary Advisory

Dating a Dallas Cowboy has impacted Simpson more than anyone expected: The pop princess has gone country. Despite some terrific messages, much of her sixth studio CD plays fast and loose with God's gift of sex.
