Fergie Ferg is Pregnant

Fergie, Black Eyed Pea, is expecting her first child with husband Josh Duhamel. Fergie is 37 and Duhamel is 40. Earlier today Ms. Ferg tweeted “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump.” Cute. The two were married in 2009 in a wedding that probably costs more than anything you will ever buy in your life times 3. No but I’m happy for them, though. Especially because of this great quote from Fergie.

From USA Today:

I love (wearing) sweats.

Oh my God, Fergie. Girl. We have so much more in common than I ever realized.

She included a photo with her tweet of the two of them as children Photoshopped into one photo hanging out in a crib or something I don’t know I don’t really get it but it’s cute:

Rumor: Ashanti is Joining the Black Eyed Peas

This summer, the Black Eyed Peas announced they were going on hiatus. “This isn’t going to be the last time you’ll see us,” Fergie promised.

And I guess that was true, technically…!

MediaTakeOut has a hot, unconfirmed tip—take it or leave it—that Fergie is leaving the Black Eyed Peas. I know!!!

But that isn’t all, you guys. Rumor also has it, the Black Eyed Peas have a replacement already lined up: Grammy-award winning singer Ashanti.

Obviously, if all this is true, it is such a bad move on Fergie’s part—Fergie is inimitable!—but I can totally respect that she wants to start a family.

And good on Ashanti! Wow! She’s kept a really low profile these last few years, and the Black Eyed Peas could honestly jumpstart her career again. In the meantime, the Black Eyed Peas are getting mmmmaybe a little stale, and Ashanti could be just the dose of ready talent they need.

Woe Is Me: Another Black Eyed Peas Hiatus!

If you’re feeling even a little tenderhearted this morning, you might want to just skip this post altogether, for – can you handle this? – it contains word of the most phenomenal band this world has ever seen, the Black Eyed Peas, being ol’ dummies and putting their light under a bushel basket. That’s right, then masterful creators of such hits as “Boom Boom Pow” and “My Humps” are going to refuse the world the greatest gift of all: their music.

The news came at a recent concert in England when Fergie thought the time was appropriate to share this awful truth. She reportedly said “This isn’t going to be the last time you’ll see us,” but it seems like that’s so much not enough, doesn’t it?

Aww, you guys, you know I’m just joshin’ you! About being sad about this news, not about this news itself. The Black Eyed Peas really are going on hiatus, but instead of it being a tragedy, I think we should throw a little internet party to celebrate this well-needed reprieve from bad music. If some of you could get to posting some funny GIFs in the comments while I wrangle up some lucky chain letters, I’m sure we can get this place hopping by lunchtime.
