Fergie sang the national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game last night . . . and let’s just say she took the song in a pretty “unique” direction. Or, if you want to get more specific, some people are calling it the worst national anthem ever.
That might be a stretch, but her take definitely caught the players and fans off-guard. Draymond Green actually laughed, and Jimmy Kimmel was spotted smiling in the crowd.
Online reactions were even more brutal. One person accused her of trying to go “full [Amy] Winehouse” with the song. Another thought she was reaching for a “Marvin Gaye” moment.
And one guy said, quote, “Fergie owes us all an apology.”
Not everyone hated it, though. During the halftime report, Shaq said he thought it was sexy. Charles Barkley joked that he needed a cigarette when it was over. (Check out more reactions here and here.)
