Fergie - "Marie Claire" April 2008

Fergie -

Fergie opens up about her own battles with drug addiction inspired her to help people with HIV in the April 2008 issue of Marie Claire. Here are some quotes from Fergie’s interview on her battle to gain awareness:

On her gritty history: “I was a child actor. I was this spaz kid diagnosed with ADHD, and I worked all the time. I got on a TV series, Kids Incorporated; I was like a little adult. And years later, because I would try to people-please, I would hold all these feelings in. Then all of a sudden, I just didn’t feel creative. And crystal meth came into my life.”

On her crystal-meth based behavior: “I started getting paranoid. I thought, The FBI is after me. I had about 20 different conspiracy theories. I painted the windows in my apartment black so ‘they’ couldn’t see in.”

On her downward spiral: “One day, when I was about 90 pounds, a guy comes up to me. I’m searching in the bushes for clues about whatever the FBI is after me for. I’m in some random getup – I think it was a cowboy hat and red lips – beacuse I never knew if someone was taking my picture. He hands me a muffin. I’m thinking, He’s in on it. Is there a message inside? So I tear it up. Looking back, I realize he assumed I was homeless.”

#4, Ariel: I hope your comment about Fergie’s “stupidity” wasn’t in reference to her drug use. Yes, there’s no one to blame but yourself if you start doing drugs, but getting over meth addiction is nearly impossible, especially if you don’t have excellent support from other people. One of my high school classmates has been addicted to meth for a few years, and he is homeless and always in trouble of some sort. I wouldn’t be surprised if he died early, sadly, because he gets no emotional support from his family, the people he needs the most. Thus, the fact that Fergie has overcome her addiction, can healthily reflect on her addiction, and has achieved success beyond the average is quite a testament to her strength… and lack of “stupidity”. And THAT makes her beautiful to me.

She’s so damn sexy when she dances. I love the flips being incorporated. What can’t she do?! I mean she’s rockin’ that leather.
My favorite part of her performance is when she gets down on her knees in front of the lead guitar player.
