Glamorous Fergie Sounds Luxurious

It seems we're entering one of those once-in-a-lifetime situations where Fergie has released a decent single (save for the ludicrous Ludicris rap). But, really, if the blatant similarities between The Dutchess and Gwen Stefani were somehow not apparent before, how about comparing the lyrical content of "Glamorous" to Gwen's "Luxurious":

Fergie: "We flying first class / Up in the sky / Poppin' champagne / Livin' my life / In the fast lane"

Gwen: "Champagne kisses / Hold me in your lap of luxury / I only want to fly first class / Desires, you're my limousine"

Fergie: "Wear them gold and diamond rings / All them things don't mean a thing / Chaperones and limousines / Shopping for expensive things"

Gwen: "This kind of love is getting expensive / We know how to live baby / We're luxiurious like Egyptian cotton / ...Diamond in the rough is lookin' so sparkly"

Fergie: "I've got money in the bank / And I'd really like to thank / ...Damn it's been a long road / And the industry is cold"

Gwen: "Working so hard every night and day / And now we get the payback / Cha-ching, Cha-ching / We're loaded and we're not gonna blow it"

Oh, well. At least you gotta give those two broads credit for singing about universal things all the fans can relate to.

    I know a tear wells up in *my* eye when I hear Fergie sing about how hard the industry is. Girlfriend is singing my life.

    I've started doing meth, though, so it should only be a few more years before I get that big break I need.

    The reason it sounds the same is that Polow da Don did both songs.He offered Gwen Glamorous but she refused it and Fergie accepted it when he offered it to her.

    So she isn't stealing, unless polow steals from himself!

    Wow pretty cold about her meth addiction. She went through a lot, and got over something as addictive as crack.

    Oh, please. Fergie's meth stories are about as believable as Sharon Osbourne's cancer tales. Hoaxes one and all! But she at least picked a gimmick no one else had yet.

    Despite this, I find all of her singles pretty undeniable, and she's becoming a favorite. Why is she dating that honky hambone Josh Duhamel?

    Fergie did have a meth addiction. Believe it or not. I know someone who knows her ex boyfriend and she spend 2 weeks detoxing in his apt and had a horrible time of it. She lost all of her child actor money and was down below 90lbs.

    Oh please. Jason! They all follow Robyn anybo. Remember the immortal saying..."its already been done in Sweden".

    As for Fergie...she'll never quite get over her glory days of Wild Orchid.

    Hey Anonymous...

    Unless I missed it, I don't see any reference to Polow being involved with "Luxurious." The song was written by Gwen and Tony Kanal, and has a sample from the Isley Brothers, so there's that writing credit as well. It was produced by Nellee Hooper and Tony Kanal. Also, there's no credit for Polow or Jamal Jones in any of the recording credits.

    Polow recorded a song with Gwen and Ludicris a couple years back called "Superstar."

    MoogaBoo: Josh Duhamel is hot! But he's probably a dull bounce.

    XO: love the Warhol'd out photo for your avatar...

    RobP: I've always maintained that Robyn is super! But he should really cut his hair. It's been the same since 1997.

    Well, the production and the Ludacris rap were originally part of a remix to the Gwen track, so yeah, forget the lyrical similarities, it's practically the same damn song.
