The Sunday February 18th game was watched by millions of fans. Fergie elaborated, “I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem, and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA.

Fergie released the statement after a bombardment of negativity regarding her performance at the Staple Center in Los Angeles. Some fans and some famous faces lashed out at the former “Black Eyed Peas’ singer. Pregnant Khloe Kardashian tweeted, “ This All Star opening is confusing me, WTF is going on? Anyone?” A viewer watching on TV said “My golly.

Charles Barkley said, “Can we talk about what we just saw?” Another on the panel, Shaquille O’Neal had praise for Fergie, he said” Fergie, I love you, it was sexy it was different.” Barkley responded to his fellow panelist and long time friend by say, “Damn right it was different, I need a cigarette after that.” Someone on Fergie’s team said ‘Fergie thought the performance was fine, she didn’t think there was anything wrong with it.’ The source also added, that Fergie sings a lot of songs in the same way. She wanted ‘to be different with her riffs and stand out.”
