Maxim Monday: Country Newcomer Jessie James on First Kisses and Cheating Hearts
Published June 29, 2009
Maxim brings the hottest female stars to FOXNews.com every Monday. Today, meet country music newcomer Jessie James.
stunner Jessie James, whose self-titled debut album hit the shelves yesterday, sings straight from her sexy heart. And unlike many other young singers, this 21-year-old former army brat, who is opening for the Jonas Brothers
on their U.S. tour, writes her own tunes. So gather ’round, y’all, and listen in as she shares some of her biggest firsts.First Romantic Indiscretion:
I write my own music, and I don’t write about anything that didn’t really happen to me, so my new song “Guilty” is based on a true story. I was dating a rock star—I’m not allowed to say who—but he was on tour a lot, so I just assumed he was cheating. It made me feel not guilty about doing it myself, you know? I don’t think he ever found out; he was too high on drugs.

It was on a golf course at 11 o’clock at night when I was 14. I took this boy, threw him up against a tree, and just kissed him. I told him no tongue, but then I was the one who stuck it to him. I felt so guilty afterward, I brushed my teeth and told my mom.First Mooching Oscar Winner:
Penélope Cruz sat next to me in the VIP room at a Jay-Z
concert in L.A. I didn’t really talk to her. I just sat there and stared because she’s so beautiful. She talked to me, though, because I had a fried-fish basket and some water, and she kept asking, “Can I have a sip of your water? Can I have a piece of your fish?”First Attempt at Identity Fraud:
I’ve used the fact that there’s another Jesse James
to get into Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. The big celebs get the good tables, so I’ll have my best friend call and say, “Table for Jessie James.” They think it’s for Sandra Bullock
’s husband, but then I’ll show up and be like, “Give me the table!”
