Fergie: Josh Duhamel ‘Walked in on Me During My Bikini Waxing’

By in January 21, 2015 • Filed in: News and rumors

In February’s Allure cover story, Fergie talks about dealing with her critics and the ways she balances her marriage, her career, and motherhood. “I just figure with all my stuff, some people are going to like it; some people aren’t,” she says. “It’s a lot easier for me just to say ‘F–k it’ now!”

According to her interview, a second solo album was one of two options for Fergie. “I felt that it was either going to be another baby or an album,” she tells Allure. For now, her son Axl Jack gets to hold on to only-child status while the singer works on the follow-up to the multi-platinum Dutchess, which came out in 2006. The sequel’s DJ Mustard-produced lead single, “L.A. Love (La La),” peaked at No. 27 on the Hot 100.

Fergie also dishes on her marriage with the actor Josh Duhamel. Her husband once “walked in on me during my bikini waxing,” she explains, “and I’m like, ‘OK, honey, hi.’ And I’m on all fours…But he doesn’t just leave; he gets curious!” Importantly, Duhamel “doesn’t feel like he’s not man enough” for couple’s therapy, which has helped the two stars establish boundaries between their professional and personal lives.

During her radio interview with Ebro in the Morning on Hot 97, Fergie revealed some exciting news. It looks like she and Nicki Minaj are teaming up for an unexpected collaboration.

The announcement came after she was asked about the competition that’s pretty much taken over the game since Fergie’s six-year-long hiatus from the music world. Although she could have, Fergie didn’t fire any shots. Remaining diplomatic she said: “Healthy competition, there’s nothing wrong with that,” when asked about fellow female MCs Nicki and Iggy Azalea. “That’s normal. That’s just like flirting. It’s a normal human thing. It’s healthy.”

The best way to divert the competition question? Talking about about her upcoming collaboration with Nicki — a snippet of which she had stored on her phone, but couldn’t play during the interview.

There’s no word yet as to when Fergie’s highly anticipated album will be released — other than the ever so vague “beginning of next year” — but we’re definitely excited!

Fergie admits make-up is her ”passion”.

The Black Eyed Peas singer has teamed up with beauty brand Wet n Wild to come up with her own line of products, and she insists her cosmetics will be of a very high standard because of her knowledge of make-up.

She said: ”Make-up is a personal passion of mine, so I made sure that I touched and curated every single product in this collection to ensure we are offering the highest quality formulas, textures and shades available.”

She added: ”This was probably the most organic partnership I could have ever imagined. Wet n Wild, its owner, Eric Chen, and I come from the exact same place, a neighbourhood in LA called Hacienda Heights. I was Wet n Wild’s target customer while growing up, and now I have a chance to be part of its evolution. Creating a luxury product which is very affordable has been such an amazing journey for us. I’m extremely excited to be taking my partnership with Wet n Wild further by creating a complete make-up line that every woman can wear.”

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old star admits she can’t live without her nude lipstick and makes sure she carries it around with her every day in order to keep her lips hydrated.

She explained to Ireland’s U magazine: ”I always keep a Fergie Daily Lipstick with me. It’s a great nude that you can wear every day. Hence the name. I also keep moisturiser on hand – with all the travelling I do, I’m always hydrating. Hydrated skin also hold make-up the most evenly.” [Source]

Fergie Confirms a New Solo Album Is Coming Soon

By in January 8, 2014 • Filed in: Alerts, News and rumors

In the late summer of 2006, Fergie released her erroneously-spelled, debut solo album, The Dutchess. It would spawn more than a few hits, including “London Bridge,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Glamorous,” “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy,” and the album itself would go triple platinum. Fergie was on top of the world; she re-ignited America’s interest in spelling and Milo Ventimiglia shirtless. And then, nothing. In the seven years that have followed, Fergie has released 0 solo albums and only one solo single, “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody,” which I think we can all agree wasn’t exactly, well, fergalicious.

But all that’s in the past and now we have a new Fergie solo record to look forward to. At least, that’s what she claims in a new interview with Ryan Seacrest.

“[] knows that I want to do a solo album next, I think everyone knows that,” Fergie told the DJ. “The Dutchess was comprised of songs that were from a seven year period and a lot of people don’t know that. I’ve been writing down my ideas. I’ve been just in my cave, my little creative cave, and the ideas come when they come and that’s the beauty of it — so not forced. So when I do come out with my album, I’m going to be really proud of it.” Read full article.
