I’m going to start this blog off by stating that I actually like Fergie. I think she’s great at what she does but I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t poke fun at this situation. I mean come on, the Fergalicious jokes going on in my brain right now are giving me a boner. Everybody is mad at Fergie. people are calling her the worst singer of all time. I’ve even seen people compare her performance to Roseanne’s. While I did send out a tweet poking fun at both of them that was just me being my regular troll self. Sometimes, Fergie, you can’t take yourself too seriously and that’s where you fucked up.
I can clearly see what Fergie was trying to do in this situation. As a performer you want to go out and give it your all. make it your own. However, when it comes to the national anthem there are certain things that you should hold back on. You take someone like Pink for example who fucking nailed the nation anthem while she was sick. She played it “simple stupid” but at the same time picked her spots very carefully for when to make it her own and go all out. That was a veteran instinct on her part and shows just how polished she truly is as a musician. Fergie is a damn good singer in her own right and I think people are forgetting what she can do. Unfortunately, she showed us in her version of the national anthem that she isn’t as polished. She made a rookie mistake in my opinion and it cost her. She wanted the moment to be more about her than the national anthem itself. I don’t think this was intended but that’s really what happened here.
Is Fergie’s career over or in trouble after this? No I really don’t think so. As far as comparing her to Roseanne….please no. Fergie can actually sing. I’m a fan of Fergie as a person and as a musician. I think this is one of those things that people will forget and move on from. If you actually take time and listen to her music you can see that she is more than just a pretty face and body. She’s good and it kinda sucks that this happened to her but at the same time hopefully she will learn from this experience and polish up her music a little. It’s not always fergalicious time. It’s about the music. Don’t forget that because I fucking know Fergie loves the music. If I didn’t think so I would be much harder on her than I am now.
