It’s rare that I feel sorry for uber hot women who make millions and millions of dollars. But I’m starting to feel a little sorry for Fergie of the Blackeyed Peas.
Yeah, I’m sitting at a little desk and pretty soon I’ll walk out and get in my little 2001 Nissan (with 212,000 miles pretty cool, right). But I’m worried about Fergie because her situation is bleak.
Here’s the issue. Fergie is aging and it shows Generally, white women, when compared to Asian, Hispanic and Black women, don’t age very well. My mom used to say we had “cheap ten cent skin that didn’t last very long.”
To make matters Fergie has to stand next to a couple of black men all the time. They don’t age, they just get cooler and cooler. Nobody knows or cares how old Will I Am is, and he wears so much bizarre stuff, we can’t really see his face.
Will I Am is just the brilliant funky Blackeyed Peas dude. Fergie, on the other hand, is supposed to be “the hot one”, and from a distance she still is. But white skin seems to crack faster than brown and black. It sucks but it’s the truth. When you look at publicity shots and their web site she looks just like she did five years ago because they can touch her up. But when you see her live or untouched photos it’s clear she’s aging like a normal woman. Take a look at her neck.
Fergie is certainly much hotter than I am or I ever was, but she has thousands of people staring at her every day under bright lights and she’s not supposed to age. I’ve got four kids and a mortgage, people expect me to get old.
So, next time I’m in a group and I have to have my picture taken, I’m going to find a great big old white person. I’m sure as hell not gonna stand by the cool black dude.
