Fergie Breaks Silence Over Viral National Anthem Performance (Statement)

Fergie has broken her silence on her National Anthem performance from the 2018 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night (February 18) live in Los Angeles.

The performance quickly went viral after Fergie put her own unique spin on the traditional song.

Fergie released a statement moments ago to TMZ, saying, “I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. 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‘s performance caught some attention from stars and even had Mariah Carey giving Fergie some advice for how to deal with all the backlash.

    Fergie, it sucked. I was embarrassed for you. I laughed along with everyone else though.

    At least her hair looked good

    Actually, her singing was good, it just wasn’t the appropriate style for the national anthem. People need to get over it and move on.

  • Amie

    Thank u Fergie can still sing

  • Stoni

    Her singing was good if you’re deaf.

    That was a hot mess!

  • pppf

    Why do these singers have to “put their spin” on the National Anthem? It’s the National Anthem…just belt it out. She sounded like me when I’m drunk at a karaoke bar and trying to do Amy Whinehouse, trying to be all sexy and sh*t.

    She was trying to bring a jazz vibe to it but clearly couldn’t pull it off.

  • namers

    It reminded me of “Happy Birthday Mr. President” and not in a good way.

  • wearing

    I don’t really get what was wrong. it was sung. The notes weren’t messed up. She wasn’t screeching. It’s all the same to me.

  • SquidBillie

    Umm….Nope. It wasn’t that bad compared to many of the overrated singers of today.

    No, you tried to make it sexy because you’re a dumbass.

  • Stoni

    Countdown to her going to rehab. Celebrities always go to rehab as an excuse after they do something embarrassing.
