Fergie is having a great 2010! And now, she’s been named as ‘Woman of the Year‘ by Glamour Magazine. What sets her apart from all of the other ladies and landed her the title? Fergie’s soaring vocals and sex appeal have made her an unstoppable musical force, both as a solo artist and with the Black Eyed Peas. She’s shown a real social conscience, working for causes from AIDS to cancer. Some of what you can read in the December issue of Glamour in Fergie’s interview:
On reaching this level of success and fulfilling her dreams:
“For some lucky reason or gift from God, I’ve known what I wanted to do since I was a little girl. And even through disappointments and rejection, there was something inside of me that wouldn’t give up. I’m a survivor, and I’m very driven.”
On having self-esteem:
“[If] you start making the right choices for yourself, all of a sudden you start feeling better and better. You’d be surprised how addicting high self-esteem is.”
On her relationship with husband Josh Duhamel being featured in the tabloids:
“Just knowing that our relationship was stronger than that. We live in a voyeuristic world, and it’s part of our business. But I like to [focus on] all the perks that I get in this business.”
Her advice to young women:
“There were periods of my life when a lot of people didn’t believe in me. [But] I still had faith in myself. I really had to ask myself life questions. Where do I see myself in five years? Create a ladder for yourself, and walk up the steps. Climb that ladder.”
Her advice to teenage girls:
“I think a lot of you teenagers try to get [esteem] from accolades from other people, or boys, and what you learn as you get older is that you have to create that within yourself.”
