Fergie: 'French fries are poison'

Fergie said she knows it’s impossible to look perfect all the time, but there’s no harm in trying.

The Black Eyes Peas singer and ELLE’s May cover girl told the magazine she pretends that french fries are poison.

“I’m not going to lie: There are times I play mind tricks on myself,” she said.

“With desserts, I’ll let myself have just one bite, but I’ll look like a freak when I’m eating it, like when I did Duncan Hines commercials as a kid, just savoring every morsel.”

Fergie, a self proclaimed romantic, also opened up about her relationship with hubby Josh Duhamel, and how she continues to fall “deeper” in love with him.

“You come to know each other a lot better, you grow together, and it makes you love each other that much deeper,” she said.

    as a girl who has struggled with an eating disorder for fifteen years, i think this is horrible. she is a role model to todays youth and shes telling them french fries are poison, when my nutritionist tells me its okay to eat them with your cheeseburger. there is no such thing as a bad food. food is energy. you wouldn't run your car on empty would you? if you ate 1500 calories in fries or in carrots it is still 1500 calories. it is all the same. everything in moderation is the key, not labeling foods fergALICIOUS.

    Why do people try to be so cruel and mean-spirited with their personal comments? They must be sick puppies who lead very frustrating lives.
    Pretty sad.

    You can give up french fries when your an Adult because there is a hormone in teenagers that makes them want to eat them.

    I agree with you that people should *know* fries are terrible. Frankly, I don't think people realize what a strong impact diet has on our ability to function.

    I agree. French fries are one of the worst things you can eat. Ever eat some cold?...you can taste the grease. Do not get me wrong..I love them, but try to limit myself to a cheeseburger and fries about three times a year. This will not kill you if you eat veggies and other good stuff the rest of the year. It is an evil plot to keep kids fat...look at Fergie and others that have nice bodies..they do not eat french fries, burgers, chips, sugary soda and cake...they redirect to wholesome foods. Fact of life...

    You can have a moderate order of fries once a week and savor them. You just can't eat them every day! Someone who gets some exercise and eats in a healthy manner should be able to eat the things they like on occasion and still stay thin.

    @ ESS;
    You must not have noticed the word BLOG at the top of the page. Many news channel's are using blogs as ways to communicate something that will hopefully lead them to another story and perhaps another will actually lead them to "news" somewhere on the site. Sadly, they rarely even proof read these blogs and they're a complete mess. It does work though because we're here talking about it, right?

    Good grief. Botox and lip plumper should be poison. She has never looked worse. She is such a gorgeous person and I hate to see what she is doing to herself, yet speaking as though she is a health nut who cares about what she eats. How about caring about the synthetic products you put into your body. So sad!
