From 2006's 'The Dutchess'
Honestly, the Black Eyed Peas almost nauseate me, but for some reason the Fergie stuff is wonderful. 'Fergalicious' is the culmination of what Gwen Stefani was doing a couple of years ago -- and that 'Milkshake' song. I actually bought ['The Dutchess'] about a month ago. I was trapped up in New York at [Flaming Lips producer] Dave Fridmann's studio cutting our 'Spider Man' theme, and I was not around a very good hip-hop-oriented station, thus unable to get my fix. So, I went, of all places, to the local Wal-Mart and bought it. How shameless is that?
Everybody's been going towards a song that got all that together -- the best of all those beats, twists and stupid lyrics. And there's something in her genuineness in saying she's "Fergalicious." I have to admit I was utterly prepared to hate it. But it's not the only song on the record that's great. There are three or four others that are just awesome, so power to her.
I actually heard 'London Bridge' first, which I liked a lot. I didn't know it was Fergie. I thought, "Whoever's doing that, they've really got that together." Then when 'Fergalicious' hit, I was like, "Well, I know that's Fergie, 'cause it's f***ing Fergalicious." And then I just surrendered to it.
Wayne Coyne is the frontman of the Flaming Lips. The band will release its first live DVD later this year.
