Fergie: Labels and Love

Fergie: Labels and Love

OK, but what surprised me most about the incident was that it escalated after you confronted Perez about his negative coverage of you and your music on his blog. I was surprised you’d even care about one queen’s opinion.
Yeah, I did. Because when I see somebody I thought was my friend or starting to be my friend… [Sighs] When someone talks out of both sides of their mouth, it just makes me question their integrity.

Referring to Perez on the red carpet at your husband Josh Duhamel’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen premiere, your mother told a reporter that you “could’ve taken him out.” Do you agree?

[Laughs] Oh, my gosh. No comment on that.

Does Josh know he has a big gay following?
Oh, he knows, and he loves it. And I encourage it. I love his gay male fans because they have the same thoughts about him that I do.

How has your wedding earlier this year influenced your perspective on marriage equality? 

I’m completely, 100% for gay marriage and equal rights. It’s crazy that everyone can’t get married. It’s unfair and ridiculous.

After you discussed past sexual experiences with women in an interview with The Sunin May, headlines everywhere read, “Fergie Admits She’s Bisexual!”

The funny thing is that I was very open and honest about that from the very beginning, and everyone was acting like it was some new trend. Go back four or five years, people, and you’ll see the same answer.

How did Josh handle the hoopla?

I’ve been very honest with him from the get-go. I think women are beautiful, I’ve had a lot of fun with women, and I’m not ashamed of it. The problem is that I also love a well-endowed man. But just because I enjoy women doesn’t mean I’m allowed to have affairs in my relationship. I learned through talking with my therapist that it is still cheating even if it’s with girls, so there is a rule there.

So we shouldn’t hold our breath for a threesome sex tape to rival Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart’s?
No, that’s not happening. We’re too smart for that. We’ve done some filming but with no tape in the camera.

Since this is The Advocate, feel free to share your hottest same-sex hookup.
[Laughs] I don’t think so. I’ve given you enough!

You did get awfully friendly with the female extras in the “I Gotta Feeling” video. Was that your idea?

Yes, it was. That was fun because it was so naughty. It was a big tease, but it felt very natural.

Growing up as the daughter of Catholic schoolteachers in Hacienda Heights, Calif., when were you first exposed to homosexuality?
At a very young age. I’ve been in show business since I was a little girl, so it was always very normal to me. My mom taught me that every human is God’s child. You have to live your own life and not judge other people. Love is a great thing.

I’m guessing you made your first gay friend on Kids Incorporated.
Oh, there were plenty on that show. But I don’t want to out anyone, just in case.

You also voiced Sally for various Peanuts TV specials. Did you suspect Peppermint Patty and Marcie were lovers? 

Yeah, I kind of got the feeling.
