Fergie goes topless in this new photo shoot from Paper magazine’s September 2016 issue.
Here’s what the 41-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On taking a break from the limelight: “My husband and I wanted to start a family — it’s crazy going from city to city like that, and to be honest, I was really burnt out. It was like peeling back layers from an onion. It was relearning how to live. I’m living with my husband for the first time as a couple, and all of a sudden I’m not living out of travel bags — that took a while, because it always felt like I was about to leave at any second. I was like, ‘No, I can actually have drawers that look like drawers.’ It’s such a weird thing to explain to people, but it was just my reality.”
On deciding to record music again: “My husband was really the one who encouraged me. He said, ‘It’s who you are, and I want to see you onstage again.’”
