Intending to honor Dolly Parton at Sunday's Kennedy Center Honors with a rendition of "Nine to Five," Jessica Simpson instead let butterflies get the best of her and flubbed her take on the tune, then rushed off the stage and later was seen in tears. "Jessica was overcome with emotion... because she's idolized Dolly her whole life," her publicist tells the New York Post's Page Six. "[She] wanted the song to be perfect." The big question: will the TV audience lay witness to the odd number when the event is broadcast on Dec. 26? Alas, CBS will likely edit out the meltdown, ventures the Post. Still, you have to give Jess props for being the biggest boob at a Dolly tribute.
