Fergie gets into the Christmas spirit
First Posted: 12/23/2014
‘Twas two weeks before Christmas, and all throughout Fergie’s house… not a present was bought, by her nor her spouse.
But thankfully for the singer, her son is a treat… Axl loves his toys, and Santa thinks he is sweet.
“It’s usually is this way,” Fergie elaborated during an interview on “Ralphie Tonight” about her holiday procrastination. “I get to like the week of Christmas, and that’s when I do everything.”
The “Fergalicious” singer said her one-year-old is pretty easy to shop for.
“It’s one-stop shop with him because he doesn’t know what (Josh Duhamel and I are) buying,” she explained. “We just go to the toy store and we’re going to put it all there on one stop.”
Fergie did not leave everything for the last second though; the singer and family decorated the house earlier this month.
“(Axl) went crazy with the lights and all the beads and all the decorations and ornaments,” the songstress recalled. “We’re just going to see that morning with all the presents what he does.”
Watching the magic of Christmas unfold in her son’s eyes should provide yet another great memory this year for Fergie. She already has a few thanks to her return to radio airwaves with the single “L.A.Love (la la).” The video for the track has over 14 million views on YouTube.
“The video actually took a lot longer than I thought because we had to build that art car,” she noted. “I mean the video came out like five or six weeks after the song came out, so it was crazy.”
“L.A.Love” serves as the first single from Fergie’s forthcoming sophomore album, the follow-up to the 2006 release “The Dutchess.” That album spawned the aforementioned “Fergalicious” along with “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Clumsy” en route to earning platinum-or-better certification in five different counties, including the U.S.
“I’ve been writing this album for years,” Fergie said, while not revealing any time-specific details on the future timeline for the project. “It’ll be over a seven year period of time, which is the same amount of time of years that I took songs for ‘The Dutchess.’”
Fergie performed the lead single on TV for the first time at the “American Music Awards.” The artist will return to the stage on New Year’s Eve, reprising her role as both co-host and performer on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”
“I love that I get to be in the living room of people in America every year because that’s the show that I watched every single year,” she said of the gig; Fergie will handle the west coast hosting duties for her 9th year. “I’d always wanted to know who was on there and Dick Clark and the whole thing.”
So perhaps we can excuse Fergie, for she has been busy… she’s in the studio, on TV, and being the best mom for her baby.
