Fergie: Literally the Biggest Sell-Out in Music

Melissa McEwan: Pop starlet Fergie accepts $4 million to include product placement in her song lyrics. Black Eyed Puh-lease
Remember when the Black Eyed Peas used to be cool? If not, it's probably because, in the four years since Fergie's been with the band, she's managed to obliterate all memory of a group who was once progressive and generally awesome.

No longer generally awesome, Fergie now evidently hopes to erase all trace of social responsibility and progressive cred the band once had by selling out to a cheesy-ass clothing line whose craptastic brand will, in the latest product placement scheme, be mentioned in her lyrics.
