Fergie to the TSA: Don’t you know who I am?!


Because clearly the government employees who have to put up with, like, fifty jillion people every day respond so well to unwarranted self-importance, Fergie decided to pull some diva bullshit when she wasn’t given special treatment at a security checkpoint at LAX. It turns out, “Whatcha gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside that trunk?” was not hypothetical question. Who knew?

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, 36, was left miffed when she was approached by two airport security guards at LAX airport yesterday. The American singer approached the security check point at the airport with a broad smile on her face but it quickly disappeared when she wasn’t given special treatment by the security staff. The actress and singer held up her hands as if to show she was happy to adhere to the security check but her face showed signs of looking less than impressed at the chatted to the female guard. Fergie lifted up her cardigan and pulled up her trousers as if to show she wasn’t carrying anything untoward. The singer was then approached by a second security guard who appeared to ask her questions before she was allowed through the check point. SOURCE

First, just want to get this one out of the way: Fergie is 36? Really? Wow, did not expect that one at all. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s continue: In all fairness to the TSA agents, considering that every Black Eyed Peas album ever has been a bomb, would you really let one of them on the plane? “Hey, aren’t those the guys who made that shitty club cover of the song from Dirty Dancing? BREAK OUT THE TASERS!”
