Jessica Simpson interested in Las Vegas comeback - report

Jessica Simpson is in the middle of secret talks to headline a residency in Las Vegas.

The pop star has been concentrating on her fashion empire and her family in recent years, but she's back in the studio working with producers and songwriters like Linda Perry, and sources tell In Touch magazine she wants to launch her comeback in Sin City.

"She's hell-bent on landing a Vegas residency," one insider tells the publication. "With state-of-the art technology and backdrops paired with her sex appeal, she thinks she can give the other headliners a run for their money.

"After 20 years in the music business, Jess is excited to follow her dreams and become a Vegas legend."

If the rumors are true, she will follow the likes of Celine Dion, Cher, Shania Twain, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Mariah Carey, who have all tasted success with residencies in the gambling mecca.

Simpson, a mom-of-two, hasn't released a record in six years, but it appears she's set for a big comeback thanks to her new collaboration with Grammy nominee Perry, who posted a photo of herself standing alongside a beaming Simpson in the studio earlier this year (16).

Simpson revealed all about her music plans last year (15), during an appearance on breakfast show Today, explaining she had turned the basement of her California home into a recording studio.

Simpson and Perry reportedly met for the first time earlier this year (16), when the former 4 Non Blondes singer hosted a party to celebrate the music she wrote for the movie Freeheld. Simpson's younger sister Ashlee Simpson was one of the performers.
