Fergie Vs. Will- Video Off!


No, we’re not talking about members of the Royal Family. We mean Fergie and will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas fame. Today we see two former members of the American dance mega-group battle it out for your votes. The similarities between the two videos don’t stop with the band the stars found fame in. Oh no, both of these songs are also featured in the blockbuster movie The Great Gatsby. Yes, it’s that time, here’s another Maximum Pop! Video-off!

[column width=half]Who? Fergie[/column]

[column width=half last=true]will.i.am[/column]

[column width=half]Song? ‘A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)’ – Yes, it is really that long![/column]

[column width=half last=true]’Bang Bang'[/column]

[column width=half]Release Date: May 6 (So you can buy it now)[/column]

[column width=half last=true]May 6 (So you can buy this too!)[/column]

[column width=half]Did I hear this in The Great Gatsby? Yes, you did![/column]

[column width=half last=true]You did, but we already told you that![/column]

[column width=half]Is the performer expecting a baby? Yes Fergie and husband Josh Duhamel are expecting their first baby boy together! Awwww![/column]

[column width=half last=true]No. But you must admit a mini.i.am would be the cutest thing ever[/column]

[column width=half]Can I see them on tour soon? Fergie will be playing two dates in January next year…. in America[/column]

[column width=half last=true]Yes! Will is touring the UK in December stopping off in Manchester, Birmingham and London![/column]

[column width=half]Is there a use of product placement in this video? Just a bit! Fergie advertises both her range of nail varnishes for Wet’n’Wild and also a Rolls Royce car in the video. Not too shabby![/column]

[column width=half last=true]A tad. The video begins with the artwork for the single. More self-promotion than product placement we’d say.[/column]

[column width=half]Do any musical instruments appear in the video? No. Unless a bright yellow Beats Pill and a HUGE mixing desk count as instruments.[/column]

[column width=half last=true]Yes. The dancers in this video go a bit crazy with their saxophones, cellos and banjos. We actually got quite scared![/column]

[column width=half]Guest vocalist? Yes, the song features vocals from fellow American artists Q-Tip and GoonRock.[/column]

[column width=half last=true]The lady that sings along to the chorus is ex-Disney girlband member Shelby Spalione. She’s not credited on this track though. Poor Shelby.[/column]

[column width=half]Did I see another celebrity making a cameo appearance? You did indeed. You’ll notice that as well as her feature vocalists, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters fame in the video![/column]

[column width=half last=true]No[/column]

[column width=half]Is this a cry for Black Eyed Peas to reunite for The Big Reunion 2? Not at all, in fact we’re hoping for a follow up to the 2006 album ‘The Duchess’ once Fergie’s come off of maternity leave![/column]

[column width=half last=true]No! We’re loving Will’s latest album and this bonus track is no exception.[/column]

[column width=half]Should I download it? Yes.[/column]

[column width=half last=true]Yes. But it seems that most of you already have as it has already charted at #3 in the UK.[/column]

Now you have the facts, it’s down to you decide which member of BEP can take home the trophy! Is Fergie’s new vid to ‘Glamorous’ to pass up or will Sneaky Willie rear his ugly head again and pip her to the post? Voting is now closed.

Result: It was a close call but Fergie just pipped Willz to the post with 55.56% of the vote. We guess ‘A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)’ is the greatest Gatsby vid!
