Dustup over Fergie’s National Anthem interpretation

US flag from CIA World Factbook.

Lots of tweets this morning about Fergie’s interpretation of the US National Anthem “The Star Spangled Banner.” It’s tempting to crit a multi-Grammy winner, and many did.

I didn’t find it so off-putting. I think she pulled it off, but above all, she chose to interpret it her way. One singer’s aesthetic can be a fan’s angst, I guess. I did see some amused looks on players’ faces at the NBA All Star Fame. You can view the video at The Chicago Tribune and form your own opinion.

You can also view Tweets on the matter under the (trending) hashtag FergieNationalAnthem.
