Pop superstar Fergie made an unannounced appearance at the Trevor Project’s TrevorLIVE gala last night, according to E!. The Dutchess MC hopped on stage while Call Me By Your Name’s Armie Hammer was about to present Tom Ford with the night’s Hero Award.
As he began his speech, he made way for Fergie, who stormed the stage and the microphone to remind people that her new album, Double Dutchess, is available at Target with some exclusive tracks.
A surprised Hammer made way for Fergie, she told attendees that “This is not a shameless promotion; I have a lot of shame. Uh, I have a new song called ‘A Little Work,’ and I have a version that has alternate verses. And so, shamelesslyno! Shame! With shame!I promote the Target version that has these bonus tracks with the alt verses. Um, these are the alt verses. Because honestly, just sitting there with you tonight, Tom Fordpurse-bag man, the myth, the legendit made me think of that. These are the ones that might not be heard by all, but they will be heard by you.”
Fergie sang some of the new lyrics for the crowd, as well.
Check the moment below.
After Hammer finally gave Ford his award, Fergie jumped on stage again and had a sing-along to her song, “A Little Work.” During her performance, according to E!, a voice on the loudspeaker said, “Ladies and gentlemen, the unpredictable Fergie.”
A guest told E!that everyone was “genuinely surprised” by Fergie’s actions.
Fergie has had something of a tough year. After years of delays for her second album Double Dutchess, it was released to poor sales and little fanfare, despite Fergie releasing videos for every song on the album. She’s also dealt with a very public divorce from actor Josh Duhamel.
