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.

  • there’s a reason she’s keeping such a low profile her “studio voice” quit that bitch and the girl can’t carry a tune to save her life, I can’t believe no one has figured her out by now

  • I guess no one remembers her stint as Dorothy in The Wiz on Broadway. Get your facts right, she’s done lots of other stuff since the release of her last studio album in 2005.

  • epic, i thought the same but i’ve actually heard her seeing the national anthem live and a football game recently and she was actually pretty good
