In music news...
Fergie is out!
will.i.am put the rumors to rest and revealed Fergie is no longer in Black Eyed Peas. The Dutchess joined the group as a lead vocalist in 2002 and helped the group reach worldwide fame.
will.i.am explained her departure to UAE entertainment news magazine Ahlan! like this:
"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."
There were rumors that former Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger will be taking Fergie’s spot. That’s still unclear, but this is what will.i.am said about it:
“Nicole is on the new BEP project as well. I don’t want to go into details how she’s involved yet.”
Sources tell E! News that over the last few years, Fergie has been phasing herself out of BEP. Fergie’s departure came right after she launched her own record label, Dutchess Music once she chucked the deuces to will.i.am Music Group under Interscope Records.
Well, there you have it.
