Fergie says her new record is “authentically me.”
The Black Eyed Peas songstress had us going back and forth for nearly a year since word broke she planned on returning to the music scene after a lengthy hiatus, so it’s a relief knowing she had the gears in motion for quite awhile to make sure her upcoming release goes according to plan.
In a new interview with the Associated Press, Fergie explains her latest release “M.I.L.F. $” was in the works for three years and hopes to inspire and empower mothers to balance motherhood, career life and “me time.”
“This is definitely empowering moms to have fun. Being a mom and having a career, taking care of yourself and still being able to be flirty and fun and a little naughty sometimes – there’s nothing wrong with that,” Fergie said in a phone interview from Los Angeles on Tuesday. “Society tries to tell moms what they should and shouldn’t be, and it’s just a little freeing to have fun with pushing those limits a bit. I might do it a little bit more than others, but that’s just who I am.”
The clip features cameos from Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Ciara and models Alessandra Ambrosio, Gemma Ward and Devon Aoki.
“These girls are insanely beautiful and they’re all doing great things. These women, they were just having so much fun on set, giving their best ‘Got Milk’ ad if you will,” she said. “It was just great.”
Fergie admits the chemistry on set was so poppin’, they may release an extended version of the video. “There’s so much more content that we shot … that we’re just going to keep probably presenting it to everyone,” she said. “I think ‘M.I.L.F.’ will probably have its own babies.”
The hot mama also reveals her new album will drop later this year, but no date has been announced yet. “I can tell you I have lot of new music. I’m super excited to give pieces, a little bit at a time,” she added. “It’s definitely authentically me because of the fact that it’s a lot of different things,” she said of the multi-genre pop album. “It wouldn’t be me if I released all songs like ‘M.I.L.F. $’ … there’s a plethora of different sounds.”
