Jessica Simpson Chats About Her Love Match With 98 Degrees' Nick

Things couldn't look much brighter for singer Jessica Simpson. Her single "I Wanna Love You Forever" is number 33 on "Billboard" magazine's Hot 100 chart and at number ten in sales, plus she's on the road as the opening act on Ricky Martin's tour.

Simpson also spent much of the year opening for 98 Degrees, which certainly helped out her love life. The singer spilled the details to MTV News' John Norris in Miami just last week.

"I'm not gonna lie," Jessica said when asked if there was anyone in her life. "There is definitely somebody."

"He's back in Texas?" Norris asked.

"And he is a performer," the singer replied.

When Norris asked if it was someone we might know, Jessica laughed and said, "Yeah!"

"So

I'm on a fishing expedition here," Norris said. "But that's all? We're not gonna talk about that?"

"It's Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees," Jessica admitted. When asked if they manage to see each other, she said, "Yeah, we make our ways." [RealVideo]

Jessica won't be touring with 98 Degrees again in the near future, though she did say they might hook up for some radio shows.

Simpson's album "Sweet Kisses" will be in stores on November 23.
