Fergie Apologizes For National Anthem Rendition at NBA All-Star Game

February 19, 2018 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Fergie has apologized for putting a seductive spin on the National Anthem during the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. The performance, during which Fergie tried to slow things down for a jazzy, sexed-up take, drew heavy criticism online immediately after it took place and has been almost universally criticized since.

The pop star issued a statement to TMZ apologizing and 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.”
