Fergie apologizes for performance at NBA All-Stars

By: AP February 21,2018 - 10:19 PM

FERGIE has issued an apology after her rendition of the US national anthem at the NBA All-Star game over the weekend was met with criticism.

The 42-year-old singer performed the “Star-Spangled Banner’ at Los Angeles’ Staples Center over the weekend ahead of the annual exhibition basketball match, and was slammed for the rendition by celebrities and viewers alike.

The Black Eyed Peas singer issued a formal statement in which she apologized for the slowed-down and divisive performance, stating she “tried her best” to do something different.

I’ve always been honoured 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,” the statement said.
