Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Fergalicious by American singer Fergie. Her full name is Stacey Ferguson and she is a member of American group the Black Eyed Peas as well as being a solo singer.

As a child Fergie was part of the TV show Kids Incorparated. She went on to form trio Wild Orchid and they released 2 albums before she left in 2001. In 2003 Fergie joined the Black Eyed Peas and they released their 3rd album Elephunk, which featured some of their mort successful songs, Where Is The Love, Shut Up, Don't Phunk With My Heart and My Humps. Since then the group have brought out 2 more albums, their last being The Beginning in 2010. As far as I know Fergie is still part of of the Black Eyed Peas but since she didn't appear on their last two songs Awesome and Yesterday it's not known if she will be on their new album.

In July 2006 Fergie launched her career as a solo artist with the single London Bridge. It was a hit, reaching No 1 in the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in the US and in New Zealand, No 3 in the UK Singles Chart and high positions in other countries. In September 2006 she released her debut solo album The Dutchess which was popular. Fergie brought out 4 more singles from the album, Fergalicious, Glamorous featuring rapper Ludacris, Big Girls Don't Cry and Clumsy. Later singles (not from The Dutchess) include Finally featuring singer John Legend and Labels or Love from the Sex and The City film soundtrack (2008).

In addirtion to singing Fergie has acted in a few films including the remake of Posideon (2006) and musical Nine (2009). She hasn't released any more albums to date but The Dutchess ws re-released as The Dutchess EP in 2008. In late 2014 Fergie made a comeback with the single L.A. LOVE (La La) featuring rapper YG. Last June she said that she was finishing working on her second solo album but there's no sign of it yet. I hope she brings one out soon because it's 10 years this year since she released The Dutchess! I have it and it's a good album.
 

Fergalious features Fergie's bandmate will.iam and was released as a single in October 2006. Although it was her second best selling song in the US, it didn't do so well in the UK (No 62) but it's one of her most shown music videos here and one of my personal favourite Fergie songs. :) The song is the video is different to the album version since some single releases were shorter.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).
