Days after Fergie’s ill-recieved rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” at the NBA All-Star game, she has released a statement apologizing.
Social Media exploded with critiques, memes and jokes on Sunday evening as many were not impressed with the artists slower, jazz-infused version of the National Anthem.
In her statement, Fergie says it did not go over as well as she’d hoped, but she tried her best.
“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem, and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” said Fergie.
“I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone.”
