Fergie has been all over the internet over the past day or so for a particularly weird take on the US National Anthem and now she’s responded.
She performed at this year’s NBA All-Star game and gave a somewhat jazz-infused version of the anthem which was not well received by anybody really.
The ex-Black Eyed Peas singer has now admitted that it probably didn’t go down exactly as she intended.
“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” she told TMZ.
“I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
Fergie seemed to be very into the performance at the time but the people in attendance were trying overly hard to keep a straight face. At one point Chance The Rapper couldn’t keep it together, showing a huge grin.
It’s also getting plenty of attention off the court too with almost 10 million people watching it on YouTube already.
It’s a “risk” that she’s unlikely to take again. That’s if anybody ever lets her anywhere near the National Anthem again.
