The guidelines: Black Eyed Peas

Seven things we can thank Fergie for getting started, uh huh

• In the video to BEPs' new single Fergie is wearing a silly Princess Leia head decoration and saying astounding things like: "I'm so 3008/ You're so 3000 and late".

• She once sent an arse cake as a back-handed "thank you" to Alanis Morissette for her acoustic version of My Humps.

• She provided endless YouTube hilarity with her appearances on the show Kids Incorporated. ROTFL at her jazz-handed version of Say You, Say Me and the early Belinda Carlisle classic Mad About You (extra points for spotting Martika!).

• She practically invented the Circle Of Shame for gossip magazines by weeing onstage. "My bladder just started ... you know," she said.

• She was addicted to crystal meth for a while and called it her "hardest boyfriend".
