Snap judgment: Fergie's 'Fergalicious'

153212__fergie_lI’ve got to be completely honest: I can’t really criticize any song that contains an interpolation of JJ Fad’s "Supersonic," one of the most addictively underrated pop-rap tracks of my youth. And so it is that "Fergalicious," the second single from Fergie’s solo debut, The Dutchess, gets the Slezak stamp of approval. Is it lyrically brilliant? With declarations like, "All the time I turn around, brothers gather ’round/Always lookin’ at me up and down, lookin at my uhhh," I have to admit it’s not. Are there tracks on The Dutchess that better showcase Fergie’s pipes? Most certainly — and here’s hoping "Clumsy" eventually gets its due at radio. But does "Fergalicious" make me want to forget the fact that I’m O to the L to the D, and head to the nearest club to shake my groove thing? Absofergalutely, PopWatchers! Now whether or not the upcoming video for "Fergalicious," featuring a bathing-suit-clad Fergie wrestling with two other chicks in some sort of pastry batter, propels the song to "London Bridge" ubiquity, or earns her the unfortunate nickname of "Chocolate-Covered Pea," well, I leave that up to you. You can get a sneak-peek at the clip right now at AOL Music. Yes, Fergie-Ferg pops out of a cake. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    Does she piss herself in the video?

  • Danna

    Is it just me, or does “Fergalicious” sound just like “Batty Rap” from Frengully?

  • Allen

    “the unfortunate nickname of “Chocolate-Covered Pea,”
    That is too funny…are you as cute in real life as your words lead us to assume?

  • Dustin

    Couple things, one of which I was kind of beaten to already:
    1) I had no idea magazine writers worked such hellish hours. This item was posted at six in the a.m. (!) and other than myself I don’t know any gay man who’d even consider waking at that hour, especially if he had some tres cool job like writing for EW, which certainly equals some modicum of glamour and a late morning call time. I have to get up that early because being a graduate student means the worst hours in the world–but you, Slezak, are a paragon.
    2) You’ve made scads of comments about your advanced age and other like-minded self-deprecations–but I can’t help but think you’re cute as all hell. The endearing charm of your blog-text–not to mention your decidedly twink-y taste in music–puts me in mind of sexy dimples and firm, high, rounded buttocks. I second poster Allen’s question, and implore you to post some sort of photographic material of yourself so we can see if I’m right about your hot ass, or indeed if you have dark circles under your eyes resulting from rising pre-dawn to make blog-posts.

    This so is a perfect example of all the crap they play on mainstream radio today. Who the hell listens to this crap? Awful song, so many artists out there who really deserve airtime cause they make good music. Don’t get me started on this “Danity Kane” Sucks.

  • Call

    Anyone wanna hear a secret? Fergie is ugly. Like a burn victim. Ugly like a Mack truck. And her songs are sh** as well.

  • Ed

    Dustin, I second your thought, Slezak’s blogs make me giddy; I soon turn into one of my 2nd graders when our very hunky principal walks into the classroom.
    …and about Ferg’s new song, love the fact that it’s a complete rip of Super Sonic AND hate it because everytime the the part of the song where she says, Rock-Rock (?) comes on, it makes me contort my face which eventually gets noticed by the person driving next to me.

  • Ed

    Call, you’re comment makes you an ugly person inside, stop the bitterness, love Fergie

  • Joe C

    Sorry, Tom, but I like Fergie, and I’m not a kid either. I think it’s a lot of fun! Still loving ‘London Bridge’ maybe the song of the year as far as I’m concerned. Everybody: How come every time you come around/my—ah, you know!

  • dan cullinane

    fergie…? um…why are you talking about her? madonna on friday and fergie on monday? was there like some kind of musical rapture i missed last week where jesus took all the good music to heaven and this is all thats left to talk about? because that would really suck…it would be much better to be skewered on satan’s tail and slow roasted than to have to live in a world like that…

  • mike

    The music Clear Channel calls hits are pathetic. I know I should yell, kids get out of my yard. The music still sucks.

  • carole

    FINALLY – someone else has heard Fergalicious – I’ve been raving about it for over a month now and everyone’s like – Fergie? whatever. That track is so hot. Made me respect her.

  • daisyj

    You do know what this means, don’t you? This means we have approximately seven months until Fergie goes on the daytime talk show of your choice (I’m guessing Tyra) and complains about how people just objectify her and nobody takes her seriously as an artist. Fifty percent chance of tears.
    Start those countdown clocks!

  • GeeMoney

    The song is kind of lame.
