Fergie Says She Used To Take Ecstasy

Date: October 2009

What happened? Prior to joining the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie was a part of a girl group called Wild Orchid. After becoming disillusioned with the group, Fergie got into the club and rave scene in L.A. and first started popping them dancing shoes. She later claimed, “It started with ecstasy. I loved ecstasy. Loved it, loved it. It was great at first, then it just went [she mimes a crashing plane].” Fergie would later move on to crystal meth before eventually getting clean and blowing up with BEP.

Complex says: We don’t condone drug use, but we’re pretty sure popping an E pill is the only way to make songs like “Boom Boom Pow” bearable enjoyable.
