Fergie To Gays: Don't Do Meth

The Black Eyed Peas front woman tells gay community to watch out for methamphetamine addiction, and to beware of the move from MDMA to harder drugs

Maira Oliveira - All Headline News Reporter

Los Angeles, CA (BANG) - Black Eyed Peas' Fergie has warned the gay community about the addictive nature of crystal meth - a drug the singer herself was once addicted to - and has told them to stop taking drugs such as ecstasy as it can only lead to worse substances. Who would have thought?

The 31-year-old singer, who has just released her first solo single "London Bridge," issued the stern advice to homosexuals who are regulars on the club scene and take ecstasy, insisting the substance only leads to harder drugs.

Fergie, who overcame an addiction to crystal meth, told gay magazine HX, "In my experience, ecstasy leads to crystal meth, and I just think that people don't know how addictive that drug is. It's so cunning because it's such a fun drug at first. You lose weight and look great for a while, but I don't care if it takes six months or five years, it will creep up on you. Don't be fooled and think you're special."

Fergie has also slammed the growing number of blogs on the internet - a subject she tackles in her song "Pedestal" on her new album "The Dutchess."

She said, "I just think, 'Wow, I've worked so hard for this, but what are you people doing other than sitting there behind your computers and talking s**t about people?'"

"If people don't like me, fine, but don't criticize people if you're not getting off you're a** and doing something about your own life," she added.
