…Until recently. My sister and I watched this video about a dozen times back in ye olde day. After hearing a Fergie song on the radio the other day (“Big Girls Don’t Cry,” I believe), I was transported back to 8th grade, around the time when Fergie launched into a solo career from The Black Eyed Peas and gave the world “Fergalicious.”
So fiercely sexy and silly. “My body stay vicious / I be up in the gym just working on my fitness / He’s my witness.” That shit’s poetry, baby.
I often wonder why her solo career didn’t explode. It looks like she’s still making music here and there, the most recent being L.A. Love – but her voice is so good! Maybe it’s too dime a dozen in the music industry. A star has to have more than just a rocking body, pretty face, and nice voice. I’d love to have an inside look at the industry. It seems viciously fascinating.
Here’s a throwback to the better days of The Black Eyed Peas. *sigh* Here come my prepubescent flashbacks.
