Love hasn't exactly been easy for Jessica Simpson over the years.
However, don't think that a few failed Hollywood romances here and there have deterred her from the main goal in her private life.
"By 10 years, I would love to be a mom," Jessica said in a new interview with FoxNews.com's Pop Tarts column. "I would just love to be in love and be a mom. It sounds simple, but it's a lot harder [than you think]. I'm pretty picky."
The 29-year-old blonde bombshell – who debuted her new VH1 reality series, "The Price of Beauty," in March – admitted there is one thing she'd never do to land a man: change who she is.
"It's important for women not to find their confidence in a man. I think you really have to know who you are before you can truly fall in love and give your all, and I don't think a man can define you. You have to own that," she added. "So if you're ever with anyone who says you should change something about yourself then they should never fall in love with you in the first place."
As far as her own personal "Price of Beauty" adventure, Jessica said she wanted to showcase how beauty is perceived on a global level, while not only shattering superficial stereotypes, but also helping herself heal from a myriad of tabloid attacks targeted at her appearance.
"I personally needed it for myself after going through all the scrutiny I went through for gaining a couple of pounds. It was really hard on me and I felt I needed to find some light in the very dark place I was in," Jessica continued. "I realized that people's judgments about me and about my weight are really just none of my business, it's not something I should be listening to or taking to heart. People can say whatever they want to say and I cannot take it personally. I know it's the business I am in and I put myself in a position to be criticized, but I've found something that will help me deal."
While much has been made about various parts of the pop star's physique over the years, for Jessica, there's one particular feature she likes best about herself.
"I like my nose, that's my favorite body part," she revealed. "I do have a bump, but I like my profile - I don't think anyone else has my exact same nose, I think it's unique and a little flawed."
