With that said, the artist is now ready to resume her career
Fergie had taken an indefinite break from her music career to focus on family and to recover from feeling “burnt out.”
The 41-year-old singer is now close to releasing her newest album, Double Dutchess, a follow-up to her 2006 solo album.
She explained to Paper magazine: “My husband and I wanted to start a family — it’s crazy going from city to city like that, and to be honest, I was really burnt out. It was like peeling back layers from an onion.”
Fergie also explained the realities of living a busy life as an artist and the everyday things she lacked access to.
“It was relearning how to live. I’m living with my husband for the first time as a couple, and all of a sudden I’m not living out of travel bags — that took a while, because it always felt like I was about to leave at any second. I was like, ‘No, I can actually have drawers that look like drawers.’ It’s such a weird thing to explain to people, but it was just my reality.”
The two have a three-year-old son together, and Fergie credited her husband for refueling her interest in music.
She shared: “My husband was really the one who encouraged me. He said, ‘It’s who you are, and I want to see you onstage again.'”
The star feels she’s managing everything nicely, from motherhood to being a working professional.
“The person I’ve worked so hard to become in my career, my destiny to be an entertainer, was matching up with my destiny to have a family and be a mom.”
