15 Sep

Stacy Ann Ferguson (born March 27, 1975), better known by her stage name Fergie, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, fashion designer and actress. She was a member of the children’s television series Kids Incorporated, and the girl group Wild Orchid. She is the female vocalist for the hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas with whom she has attained charting success worldwide. Her own debut album spawned five Billboard Hot 100 top five singles,[1]three of which went to number one.

Having left Wild Orchid in 2001, Ferguson joined The Black Eyed Peas. With The Black Eyed Peas, she enjoyed a series of hits and albums before releasing her debut album, The Dutchess, in September 2006 to similar success. The Black Eyed Peas enjoyed further success with the release of their third album with Ferguson; they attained their first string of Billboard Hot 100 number one songs. As Ferguson’s five solo singles and six singles with the Black Eyed Peas have reached two million downloads in the United States, Ferguson was the artist with most two-million sellers in the beginning of 2011.[2]

Ferguson married actor Josh Duhamel in early 2009 after a five year relationship.

Ferguson and Josh Duhamel married in a Catholic ceremony on January 10, 2009, after five years of dating.[20][21] Ferguson and Duhamel met and began dating in September 2004[22] when she and the band appeared on Duhamel’s show Las Vegas.

The Black Eyed Peas released “Boom Boom Pow” from the album The E.N.D. in late March 2009, it went to number one in the US,[23][24] making it the group’s first chart topper.[23] They subsequently released a second single from the album, “I Gotta Feeling“, which proved an even greater success than the first, moving from number 2 behind “Boom Boom Pow” to the top spot on July 11,[24] and staying 14 straight weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100,[25] the longest stay at the top of 2009. The two hit singles back to back kept The Black Eyed Peas on the top for 26 consecutive weeks, from April 18 through October 16. “Meet Me Halfway” was released as the third single from the album in September 2009. The single reached number one in the UK and Australia. It also peaked at seven on the Billboard Hot 100. In October 2009, Ferguson became a part owner of the National Football League’s Miami Dolphins.[26] “Imma Be” was released as the fourth single, reaching number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks. “Rock That Body” was then released as the fifth single, and has reached number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.

She launched her debut fragrance, Outspoken under Avon in May 2010.[27] The Black Eyed Peas’ sixth album, The Beginning, was released on November 30, 2010 and is their fourth studio album to feature her as a member. The first single from the album, “The Time (Dirty Bit)“, topped the charts in various countries. In January 2011, she began appearing in Dr Pepper Cherry commercials. The second single from The Beginning was “Just Can’t Get Enough“, which also topped the chart in various countries and also on the UK Dance Chart. “Don’t Stop the Party” was the third single from the album. On September 3, 2011, the group performed a concert in Minot, North Dakota to benefit the victims of the 2011 Souris River flood that damaged over 4,000 homes and displaced over 12,000 people in Minot and along the Souris River.
