Fergie: I'm both the Madonna and the whore

Back with the Black Eyed Peas after her solo stint, Fergie is as hot as ever. B.E.P.  is currently on a worldwide tour - and recently performed at the World Cup opening ceremony - but the 35-year-old singer still hasn’t run out of steam with her crazy schedule.

"I’d love to have structure in my life but it doesn’t always work out like that,” she told Cosmopolitan UK. “I’d decided to take time off, but then I got the offer for ‘Nine,’ and I’d have regretted turning that down for the rest of my life. So I learned to fly by the seat of my pants."

When the singer-turned-actress signed on for a supporting role in the film, she had to gain a few pounds for the part – and it was a change her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, didn’t seem to mind.

"When I came home from filming he was excited,” Fergie said. “He enjoys having both: the extra meat to grab when it’s there and the tight stomach when that’s there. He always gives me compliments."

But even with a guy like that, Fergie wasn’t totally sure that Duhamel was “the one.”

“At that stage of my life, I don’t think I’d have thought that about anybody,” she said. “I’d made my lists of qualities that I wanted, and you can’t find out if someone has those in a week. It was learning what he was made of that made me fall in love with him."

Yet there’s one stage of life that Fergie isn’t quite ready for: motherhood. And it’s not because she’s afraid of what becoming a mom would do to her image.

"You can be a mother and still completely sexy,” the singer said. “Right now, I don’t want anything clouding my focus. Right now, I’m living in the present."

That philosophy may not come as a surprise to many – Fergie has always seemed confident on who she is and wants to be. She told Cosmo, "You know, in Italy, Catholic boys are raised to believe there are two types of women: the Madonna and the whore ... And me? I’m both."

The singer will appear on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK’s “Body Confidence” issue, hitting newsstands tomorrow.

    Any well rounded and whole woman is both and a whole lot more. Futhermore, a Madonna would have some couth and not brag. Pity that this creature does not get that.

    I think she's more of the latter than the former.

    Do we ever reach the point of TMI coming from these Hollywood folks...do we really need to know this?

    Heck, do we need to know that famed call girl Ashley Dupre has a famous twin? Hey, you decide if you want to know about it:
