Fergie‘s unconventional performance of the national anthem at Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game nearly upstaged the game itself. After taking heat on social media for the performance, the one-time Black Eyed Peas member issued an apology on Monday.
In a statement she said, “I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and [Sunday] 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.” (People)
