Jessica Simpson, sister to Ashlee and singer of “A Public Affair,” tweeted something rather unexpected this evening.

Yes, you read that correctly: “I need to make music.”

“Need.”

Jessica Simpson doesn’t simply want to make new music. She needs to. She yearns for melodies. She craves beats. She thirsts for the familiar feel of a giant pair of headphones slipping onto her head as she croons sweet, sweet tunes into a microphone.

Not since 2010’s ill-fated Happy Christmas, which included the Tricky Stewart & The-Dream-produced “Kiss Me Before Christmas,” has Jessica Simpson made any moves in the music industry.

But what does all this (and by “all this,” I mean “this single tweet at 1 in the morning”) even mean? Did Ashlee accidentally log into her sister’s Twitter account? Did Jessica send out a delirious sleep-tweet after dealing with her brand new baby boy Ace all day? Is wishing for more J. Simpson music the sweetest sin — or is it simply irresistible?

Yes, the shoe line is madly successful, as are the perfumes (I myself swear by Fancy by Jessica Simpson) and the weight-loss endorsement deals — but now it’s time to get back in there and give us a follow-up to “With You.” Or “Push Your Tush.”

An eager world awaits.
