A very pregnant Jessica Simpson appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday, March 12, 2012, to promote her new show Fashion Star as well as chat a little about her now famous naked Elle cover shoot.

About the cover, Jess who didn’t consult her ultra-conservative dad had this to say.

“I shot that a couple of months ago. I don’t look like that no. I wanted to do it. I mean, ELLE didn’t even ask me if I would want to do it, I just always had the idea in my mind that I would do it.”
