Fergie Apologizes For National Anthem Gone Wrong

Written by , Posted in General

Who says the national anthem can’t be sexy? In what I can only assume was an attempt at originality, Fergie sang a sexy version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the NBA All Star Game and it did not land . . . to say the least. Met with noticeable laughs from some head-scratching athletes, Fergie finally addressed the controversy, 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.”

Watch below. It wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t feel as if she was trying to show off, but this country needs a laugh, and Fergie delivered.
