In the one-on-one with the grande dame of the Black Eyed Peas, she gives such self-help advice as this: “There were periods of my life when a lot of people didn’t believe in me. [But] I still had faith in myself. I really had to ask myself life questions. Where do I see myself in five years? Create a ladder for yourself, and walk up the steps.” See, that’s how you get to be Billboard‘s Woman Of The Year, folks.
On the subject of self esteem, Fergie adds, “For some lucky reason or gift from God, I’ve known what I wanted to do since I was a little girl. And even through disappointments and rejection, there was something inside of me that wouldn’t give up. I’m a survivor, and I’m very driven.” Glamour-ous!
The new Black Eyed Peas album, The Beginning, is due out November 30. Have a listen to first single “The Time (The Dirty Bit)” here.
