The tea was hot this morning on “The Wendy Williams Show,” where she reacted to Fergie’s nightmare of a national anthem performance and subsequent apology. (READ HERE)
Though Williams is a fan of Fergie, who is also a “friend” to the show, she couldn’t resist throwing some low-key shade the singer’s way over her vocals at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night.
“There are only a few people who can sing raw dog and Fergie is not one, she needs autotune,” said Wendy. “Jen Lopez needs autotune, Janet needs autotune, Beyonce needs autotune. Adele, Aretha, Celine, Dionne Warwick and Mariah, they need nothing. They sing raw dog.”
That being said, the host didn’t think the former Black Eyed Peas performer needed to say “I’m sorry” for her rendition.
“I don’t feel like Fergie needed to apologize to anybody. You did it, you done it, and that’s that,” said Williams. “She did her jazzy version of the anthem at the NBA and everyone was upset and she released a statement saying she wanted to do something different and apparently different wasn’t good.”
