And another milestone falls!

Fergie, the former meth-smoking "singer" for the Black Eyed Peas (I think her real job description is "midriff exposer"), has signed a $4 million deal with Candies to, well, sing about their clothes in her songs. Yes friends, her music will now be a commercial for a company – the ultimate in corporate synergy!

You like the idea of paid product placement in music? I mean, it's one thing to license your songs, but it is entirely another to get paid to sing songs about a product (in a non-commercial). I suppose holding Fergie to some sort of artistic standard was too much. I mean, anyway who gets famous thanks to her "lady lumps" is an musical genius right?

(Hat tip to The Superficial for this musical disaster waiting to happen).
