July 14, 2010
Stacy Ann Ferguson, better known by her stage name Fergie, is an American singer-songwriter, rapper, fashion designer and actress. She was a member of the children's television series Kids Incorporated, and the girl group Wild Orchid. Ferguson was also a co-host of the television show Great Pretenders. She is the female vocalist for the hip hop/pop group the Black Eyed Peas, as well as a solo artist, having released her debut album, The Dutchess, in September 2006. The album spawned five Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 singles (three of which went to number one).
In a July 2010 interview with New Music Express speaking about President Obama, she stated, "He's a very great speaker. We know him -- I myself got to go to the White House. They have a beautiful family. I wish they could do more about marriage equality though. That's my one thing that I want to happen for marriages of gay couples to have equal rights, so I'm pushing for that.'' [Link]
