Fergalicious: Are The Black Eyed Peas Dropping Fergie For Ashanti?

Submitted by on November 11, 2011 – 5:03 amNo Comment

Fergalicious definition make them boys go loco so the question is, can R&B songstress Ashanti make Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, crazy enough to drop Fergie for her? Rumor has it, the switcheroo may be in the works.

”The group had been looking for a replacement for some time,” an insider told MediaTakeOut.com. Allegedly Ashanti filled in for Fergie during several of BEP’s performances on their world tour to unofficially audition for the spot. We searched high and low and could find no video of any such performances which would be extremely odd if it actually happened. These days celebrities can’t sneeze without someone posting a video of it on YouTube.

Although the decision to make Ashanti an official Pea has yet to be substantiated, the rumor comes on the heels of Fergie admitting that she looks forward to taking some time off from the band to focus on her other endeavors and to start a family with her husband, actor Josh Duhamel. “I’m excited for that,” Fergie told E! News. “I have my footwear collection and my fragrance, my husband, football and many other things in my head.”

And it looks like the Peas are willing to let Fergie have her wish. “We have to respect Ferg,” Taboo told the New York Times.. Ferg is our sister. She definitely wants to have a family, and we’re happy for her. You can’t not respect people’s wishes. As our sister, we have to give her space.”

Whether that “space” will be filled by Ashanti is still a mystery. Stay tuned but in the meantime, watch both divas at their best. Which singer do you like better?
