Honestly, who the fuck does Fergie think she is? She just thinks she can leave Black Eyed Peas forever? How dare she?!
Although I wasn’t even really aware that the Black Eyes Peas were making a come back, I had a feeling that Fergie wouldn’t be a part of the band if they did. She has been promising a solo album for like three years and hasn’t produced shit.
The band was doing an interview with magazine Ahlan! where Will confirmed the situation.
“Since the beginning of Black Eyed Peas, we’ve always had amazing vocalists that appeared on the mic with us. People like Macy Gray, Esthero, Debi Nova, Fergie. On Elephunk, there were several females that appeared on that album,” will.i.am said. “Obviously Fergie was the featured female, but on songs like ‘Let’s Get it Started,’ it’s Noelle [Scaggs], and then Fergie, songs like ‘Latin Girls,’ it’s Debi Nova, and ‘Request Line,’ it’s Macy Gray. We’ll always work with good females.”
So there’s that.
I am always going to say that Black Eyed Peas were one of the most innovative band of my lifetime (I am 26) because even 15 years ago when they were releasing their first album, that music could be released now and still be a hit.
Hoping that Fergie gets permanently replaced by Nicole Scherzinger.
