Black Eyed Peas star Fergie has blasted critics who insult her looks - insisting her hectic lifestyle means she is often too busy to bother with a beauty regime.
The Boom Boom Pow hit-maker, 35, has long faced taunts about her appearance, but is adamant the spiteful comments will not force her to slow down and spend more time preening.
She tells Elle magazine, "It has hurt in the past when people say things like how 'fugly' (f**king ugly) I am or how horrible I look. Look, when you're trying to juggle all of this in your life, sometimes you're not going to look perfect."
