Fergie to Allure: Will.i.am Is “Very Protective And It Drives Me Nuts”

By  | 


Fergie may be the only girl in the Black Eyed Peas, but she definitely has no problem with it. And why should she? She’s totally awesome and super talented and, besides, those dudes are way cool. And to prove even more that Fergie Ferg definitely doesn’t get lost in the BEP shuffle, she’s on the cover of Allure‘s July 2011 issue. And she’s spilling on everything from her relationship with will.i.am to plastic surgery rumors and more!

Click on to catch some of Fergie’s interview with Allure!

On having to work super hard: “I took a break to have a wedding. I’ve definitely committed some time this year to the Peas, but not as [much as] I have in previous years. I need balance in my life, and the guys understand that … I don’t think Will ever wants a break. We’re very different in that way.”

On her relationship with Will.i.am: “There is conflict, he’s very protective, and it drives me nuts because I do a lot of my best work, writing-wise, when I’m completely alone.”

On dealing with rumors that she had surgery: “I did two major drastic things, which is hair to the side—it was the first time—and the big neon lip. I wanted to try something different, and all of a sudden it was this big backlash. People were saying ‘It’s a fake Fergie.’ I heard about some ridiculous amount of money that I spent on my face, which I think is absolutely insane.”

On learning to love her looks: “I’ve learned to love my nose because it’s unique. It’s interesting, and it just makes me a little different.”
