Fergie Thrilled About ‘Nine’ Character, Singer Talks New Black Eyed Peas Album

According to recent reports, Fergie is thrilled about her new role as a prostitute named Saraghina in “Nine.” As previously reported, the Grammy-winning singer has been cast as Saraghina in “Nine,” a big-screen adaptation of the Tony-winning musical. She will perform the saucy song “Be Italian” with Guido, played by Daniel Day-Lewis. “She’s basically a prostitute on the beach,” Fergie told the Associated Press in a recent interview. “She introduces him to the world of sexuality. It’s a very strong song. I’m just thrilled I get to play a character.” Fergie, 33, joins Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench and Kate Hudson in “Nine,” directed by Rob Marshall (“Chicago”). In related news, Fergie is busy at work on a new album with the Black Eyed Peas, their first record since 2005’s “Monkey Business.” “It’s a new sound,” she said. “We’re going into the future. We’re not doing the same old thing. We’re not trying to copy what’s out there on the radio.” Source: Billboard
