Jessica Simpson's Road Rules

UPDATED 06/21/2004 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 06/21/2004 at 01:00 AM EDT

•When traveling the country by bus, watch the road: "We once had a driver who was narcoleptic. He wouldn't drive at night, but that's when he had to drive, and we ran off the side of the road and everybody fell off their bunk. But it was funny."

•Play games you can win: "I'm best at Scattergories. I can think of random words that nobody else will."

•Stock up on Oreos: "I eat them after the show. If I ate them before, you'd see all the chocolate in my teeth."

•Make time for shopping: "We make Target runs." Recent purchases: pillows and DVDs. Total DVDs on bus? "Probably 500."

•Punk fellow travelers: "We had a bus driver once who let us talk on his CB, and trucks would drive by and we'd moon'em."

•Karaoke the competition's songs: "I've been known to do Britney Spears awful. No, not on purpose."

•Don't have MTV cameras around 24/7: "I love not having to worry about having a mike on, or turning it off before I pee."

•Avoid leather pants onstage: "I used to split my pants every time I'd perform in New York."

•Get personal with fans: "This lady told me she got a tattoo on her butt. We had a five-minute conversation about if it hurt and if she felt weird having her butt up in the air. I think it's of her boyfriend's name. Thank God it's not Jessica."

•Wake up in another town and repeat: "It feels like Groundhog Day. It's the same thing every day, which is kind of like going to work from 9 to 5. It's like being normal—but really, it's not."
