VIDEO: Fergie Weighs in on Slimming Down
Rejoice, America! After a long struggle to take off the pounds she packed on for her acting career, Black Eyed Peas songstress Fergie is back to her normal weight!
The singer—born Stacy Ann Ferguson—added about 15 pounds to her figure to play the role of chunky prostitute Saraghina in the upcoming musical Nine last year. And after months of working out, she’s gotten herself back where she started.
“I’m finally back to the weight that I was before the film,” she tells In Touch Weekly. “It’s taken me forever!”
Part of the reason it may have taken Fergie so long to drop the weight is because she had a wedding to plan and a honeymoon to go on with her new hubby, Transformers actor Josh Duhamel. The songbird failed to shed all of the weight in time for her January nuptials, but she made peace with that fact instead of going into Bridezilla mode.
“I didn’t lose all of it for the wedding, but I fit into my dress, so I was happy,” she offers. “Now I’m just trying to sculpt and get ready for the tour, get my stamina up.”
Fergie’s successful slim-down comes at a personally significant time for the singer—she turns 33 tomorrow. What an awesome birthday present to give herself.
