Is This a Joke?
Fergie performed on the Today Show this morning and completely butchered Heart's classic "Baracuda." At one point you can even see an audience member laughing at her. She did these weird one handed cartwheels around the stage, and forever etched this mess of a performance into my mind by crawling around the front of the stage in some sort of attempt at being sexy right in front of a mother and her 4 pre-teen children. You can tell there were a bunch of girls there to hear Fergilicious or Glamorous. The look on their faces says "I can't believe I got out of bed early to watch this crap." You can tell Fergie success is going to her head. She sold a couple million records and now thinks she can make indulgent choices in what songs to preform. Lets get this straight Fergie. Sing the song people want to hear. They are not concerned with your artistic expression. If you can't do it, I am sure there is some other tight assed former meth addict out there that will. Here is the video. Jump towards the end to see the cartwheels and inappropriate stage grinding.
