Fergie talked in a recent interview about her former addiction to crystal meth! Did you know that Fergie had a drug problem?!? We’re guessing that her interventionists had a field day trying to get her to put down the pipe. Either way, we’re glad that she has emerged victorious in her battle.
She fought her battle against the drug and won and says that her days as an addict proved both good and bad. She said, “I think that sometimes it leads to brilliance and other times it leads to disaster. That’s my answer.”
Her bandmate, Taboo, also dealt with an addiction to drugs and alcohol and said that the lifestyle in the band made it that much harder to walk away from his problems. He said, “The excess of partying for me was out of control and it just let me go to a place where I crashed really hard. It wasn’t just about me, I was damaging my family and almost my career.”
He added, “The thing is, when you do have that addictive personality and you have success and fame, it’s there every night. And you partake. And you get caught up, ‘Oh, I’ll stop tomorrow.’ I’d look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘I’m going to stop’, and next day go to the drug dealer. But I bounced back.”
Good for them! We’re glad to hear of celebrities overcoming addiction problems.
