Jessica Simpson has never been happier following her divorce, because she has discovered a new perspective on life.
The singer/actress, 25, split from former boy band star Nick Lachey in November after a stormy three-year marriage which was documented on the reality TV show Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica.
She is convinced she can now realise all of her career ambitions, after her divorce went through in June.
She says: "I feel free, independent and strong. Once I realised how much I really did want from life, I took on a whole new perspective."
