Black Eyed Peas Singer...Meth Addict...Who Knew?

BEIJING, Sept. 12 -- Fergie, the female voice of the Black Eyed Peas, says she had to dig deep into herself to kick her crystal meth addiction.

"It was the hardest boyfriend I ever had to break up with," Stacey "Fergie" Ferguson told Time magazine in an interview for the issue that hits newsstands Monday.

It's the drug that's addicting," said Fergie, who has released her first solo album, "The Dutchess." "But it's why you start doing it in the first place that's interesting. A lot of it was being a child actor; I learned to suppress feelings."


When asked what she does now with those feelings, she said, "I have an hour and a half of performing every night and improvising. If there's a rafter, I can climb right on."

Asked if she ever met Sarah Ferguson, the duchess of York, she said, "We're talking about doing some charity work together, building schools."

My world has been turned upside down.

Leslie Rodriguez:

I knew this would touch you deeply Mike.

Stormy Knight:

Well, it turns out when they came through Pittsburgh a little while back, Fergie was a little tipsy.

Or so says Nicole, my co-worker (you know who that is) who saw them that night.

She said Fergie was clearly intoxicated, slurring her words and could not remember the dance steps.


Leslie Rodriguez:

She also allegedy peed her pants on stage. I mean I guess it happens to the best of us.


Yeah. Hahaha. I suppose if you pee yourself on stage in front of thousands of people, and that's the worst thing that happens in your life(I'm ignoring the crystal meth addiction and public intoxication here) you're in pretty good shape.

Plus it doesn't hurt that she has millions of dollars either.
