Will.i.am confirms Fergie's departure

2018-02-20 by ZodiacalWolf | 54 Comments
Will.i.am, main singer/songwriter of The Black Eyed Peas, confirmed in an interview with the Daily Star that now former lead singer Fergie has left the group. Her involvement with the group had started to become a matter for debate among fans as she did not perform on any of their recent releases or live performances.

Will.i.am also hinted that Nicole Scherzinger, who was allegedly meant to join the band back in 2001 before deciding to front the Pussycat Dolls, could replace Fergie.

Truly a loss for modern music.

That said, BEP were actually a decently enjoyable group before she joined. Falling Up is a jam.

so Hendrix does a crazy take on the national anthem he is considered a god, but when Fergie does it she is a disgrace? Fergie = the Pop Hendrix imo

that anthem was mediocre even before she sung it. it's a national anthem. there isn't a single national anthem that sounds interesting from any angle. so fuck it, let her sing it too...

regardless of how bad it was, she tried to make it unique, which is the most pretentious thing one can possibly do

the polish national anthem is great when drinking. it's more of a chant anthem... mixed with the one babcia that belts out them notes which makes you drink some more. I guess alcohol makes music prettier the more you drink too!!

If you aren't at all attracted to someone like Fergie you have pretty lofty standards and IRL would probably bang her if you could and she was chill

That said, not a fan of her music

Here's hoping that they go back to the sound of their first two albums pre-Fergie. Not holding my breath, but it'd be nice.

Fergie tries too hard, she has some pipes, but never bothered to learn how to sing, Instead she does bad imitations of others.
