Fergie has apologized for the mess that was her National Anthem performance at the NBA All-Stars game. Critics have blasted her on social media, becoming one big internet meme itself, was her performance, and her undeniably unusual rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Fans, Artists, the players, and commentators alike were all seen giggling on live TV at the performance.

The singer told TMZ, “I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.

Fergie also told US Weekly, “Neither Fergie nor her team thought anything was wrong with her national anthem rendition,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively continuing to say, “That’s the way she sings a lot of her songs. She loves adding a little sexiness and being different with her riffs. It was meant to be jazz-inspired. She wanted to stand out.”
