Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie spoke through a representative that her deal with clothing line Candy's has nothing to do with her new song.
After creating disappointment for some of her fans who think she is selling her credibility, Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie denies her involvement with Candy's musically. The Black Eyed Peas singer indeed tied a deal with the clothing line but not for a commercial song.
A spokesperson for the singer announced, "She does have a commercial deal with the clothing brand Candie's, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with the creation of her music."
Fans were afraid that Fergie's credibility as a singer would be lowered if she intentionally mentions Candy's product in her upcoming song. U.K.'s Sunday Times quoted an Interscope exec saying, "With record sales in decline, you must find novel ways to make money out of the music. The trick is to make the brand part of the song so that it slips down easily rather than chokes the fan."
