Do you think they care any about what some reviewer that was promo'd their CD cares any about? Do big name artists even know when they are getting panned in the press? I doubt the people that buy it care, so why even review an album like this when so many more interesting ones never get any major press? I wonder ...

Itís essentially a Black Eyed Peas album with two fewer rappers. Thatís an improvement: two down, two to go. [18 Sep 2006]

40 - All Music Guide
Mildly entertaining but tremendously taxing.

20 - PopMatters
Fergie prances, preens, moans, talks and raps, but the result is canned and sterile.

AMG reviews more than I'd've believed possible, the only things I see that they don't seem super-obscure, for the most part. As for the others, I think that with an artist like this, her handles would only be concerned about a negative if they think the presumed customer base is actually a reader of the publication in question.

Who's Fergie?


I don't mind watching her (with the sound off), but calling her an 'artist' is quite a stretch!

Oh...that's Fergie...isn't she that chick from Black Eyed Peas?

"my hump my hump

my hump my hump my hump

my lovely lady lump"

I don't guess she's running any faster than any other pop skank (see Ashlee Simpson, Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton)

"Artists" like her prolly have several suits running interference so they don't see those types of reviews, and if they do see a disparaging article, they'll write it off as jealousy. Besides, she's slutty, and slutty sells (see Madonna, Samantha Fox, Christi Agullera, Pink).

Let her laugh all the way to the bank. We'll laught at her when its her turn through the tabloid mill (see Cortney Love, Brittany Spears, Jessica Simpson).

Now excuse me while I put on some Nora Jones and renew my faith humanity.

she's got the looks (really she has) but sing?? nah, maybe as a backing vocal, that 'song' "london bridge" makes me nervous, same as the other pop stars, they buy the album because of her looks, not for anything else.
