Fergie has been mercilessly mocked for her rendition of the national anthem at 2018 NBA All-Star Game. In light of the widespread criticism, the former Black Eyed Peas member issued an apology for her performance.

“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” she said in a statement. “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
