Stacy Ann Ferguson, better known by her stage name, Fergie, has recently opened up about her battles with crystal meth addiction. The current Double Dutchess singer and former member of the Black Eyed Peas, described her lowest point in an interview with a British publication, iNews.
“I was [suffering from] chemically-induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis,” she said of the drug abuse in the interview. “It took a year after getting off that drug for the chemicals in my brain to settle so that I stopped seeing things. I’d just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or bunny.”
She has been extremely forthcoming about her experiences with drug abuse and addiction in hopes that it will inspire others. She once told Time magazine that her drug addiction “was the hardest boyfriend I ever had to break up with.”
“I dug so deep as to why I got there. It’s the drug that’s addicting. But it’s why you start doing it in the first place that’s interesting,” she said in her iNews interview. “A lot of it was being a child actor; I learned to suppress feelings.”
