Fergie Fights Meth

Fergie talks about the hardest break-up she ever went through for Time magazine this week. But the hardest boyfriend she had to break-up with wasn't a man, it was crystal meth. While promoting her new album, she's decided it's time to reveal that she used to have the addiction. Here's more:

"It was the hardest boyfriend I ever had to break up with," Stacey "Fergie" Ferguson told Time magazine in an interview for the issue that hits newsstands Monday.

"It's the drug that's addicting," said Fergie, who has released her first solo album, "The Dutchess." "But it's why you start doing it in the first place that's interesting. A lot of it was being a child actor; I learned to suppress feelings."

When asked what she does now with those feelings, she said, "I have an hour and a half of performing every night and improvising. If there's a rafter, I can climb right on."

Meth is crazy it actually eats away at your brain even for short term users. Could be why she doesn't seem lucid

her body is amazing, but I have to say, she has courage to talk about using meth. That is a dirty nasty drug, and I personally may not even admit I had a problem with it if I were her.

that's the face of a meth addict Sica. Sad really. I've seen pix of her when she was just starting in that girls band and she looked so different.

I'm glad Fuggie is on meth, but she doesn't seem to lucid. The quotes in the article hardly make any sense...I had to read it a couple of times to figure out what the hell she meant...

I hardly think these two shows qualify her as a child actor. I'd never even heard of this stuff until now. What is it about coming out about drug addiction that is supposed to make me want to run out and buy her album. Maybe it's a sympathy ploy, if we think she might get back on the pipe if he album flops we'll buy it?

oh okay I was gonna say that's pretty soon. Wow Chris Penn had a whole lotta stuff in his system

Gracey, l'd take that report with a grain of salt an in depth analysis actually can take weeks

Sorry the above was about Chris Penn. Yeah I know Jen76, but really they say that so that when the report comes out everyone has already moved on in the news world. It might be the case but chances are not. I feel for Anna Nicole though don't get me wrong.

Tabloid princess, on they report that they autopsy said: Officially the cause of death was a "nonspecific cardiomyopathy with the contributory factor of effects of multiple medication intake" In his body were Diazepam, codeine, morphine, ephedrine, ethanol, cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine. Accidental. Natual causes. As natural in that way a decade of alcohol, drug and food abuse can be. So Idk really but he wasn't a saint in the drug department. If anyone is into morbid details of celeb's death, this guy's site is pretty interesting. ;)

Fergie was also on a karaoke show for pre-teens. I know, because my daughter used to like to watch it when she was younger. It was just before she hit it big with the Peas. It was the silliest show ever. The Anna Nicole story just breaks my heart.

Gracey - they've just said that drugs and alcohol don't *appear* ro be a factor. They haven't made a definitive statement.

(Off Topic Post)They said the medication Chris Penn took caused the death. That's what I heard from the news.
