Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (June 12, 2009)



The new Black Eyed Peas video for “I Gotta Feeling” has everything you’d expect from a G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S Los Angeles house party: impressively dressed model-esque guests, tons of booze, a swimming pool, glow in the dark body paint, and, of course, some fauxmosexuals.

With some girl-on-girl action peppered throughout the video, a large focus has been on Fergie‘s own same-sex interaction, or her “raunchy lesbian scene,” as The Mirror calls it.

Sure, she’s spotted grinding on some ladies, feeling up some girls’ legs, and running some sort of feathery bondage item along one female party-goer’s side — but I mean, that’s just any Friday night, right? She’s not even seen locking lips with another girl or touching one’s lovely lady lumps, so what’s so raunchy about it?

In a recent interview, Fergie hyped up the scene, saying, “You’ll like our next video, for ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ because I have a little girl-on-girl tease section of the video. … I met the girls right before we did the scene. They were beautiful. They were hot. One of them was the director’s girlfriend — so he was happy!'”

But the most “lesbianish” scene of the video doesn’t even involve Fergie — just some random L Word-type ladies frenching in a corner. But, given the fact that Stacy Ferguson has openly spoken about her lesbian experiences in the past, and even vaguely referred to herself as bisexual, it’s not surprising that this new video is causing such a stir. But then again, considering all of that, people shouldn’t be so surprised.

Besides, wasn’t Fergie’s solo performance of Heart‘s “Barracuda” on The Today Show last year much, much raunchier than this video? I mean, there were children in that audience, front row, while she did back-bends in her skin-tight leggings and crawled seductively across the stage. Yet, it’s her “lesbian scene” in her band’s new video that’s getting all the attention.

At least the song, which the band performed this week on David Letterman, is catchy. You can watch the video for “I Gotta Feeling” here.
