Pop singer Fergie is not only expecting her first baby with actor Josh Duhamel, she will also soon have something in common with Britney Spears, Janet Jackson and Lady Gaga. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, the singer and member of the Black Eyed Peas is being honored by Logo and will receive the network’s “Always Next, Forever Now” Award.
Fergie has given much of her time and has dedicated her efforts in raising money to help fight HIV/AIDS while working with organizations such as amFAR and the MAC AIDS Fund. This commitment by Fergie celebrates her support and “impact on pop culture”, says Logo exec vp and GM Lisa Sherman.
The annual award was founded as a tribute to pop icons and also celebrates their unique and global impact. Logo, which is one of the only lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender-themed cable networks will be hosting the awards on April 13. Fergie will be presented the award by Chelsea Handler. As far as the award, Fergie is honored and appreciative of the support she has received from the LGBT community.
“I could not be more proud to be honored by Logo. This award is so incredibly special to me because of the tremendous love and support I have always experienced from the LGBT community. Logo’s philosophy of acceptance with no barriers and no judgment is a message that we should all live by.”
Recently Fergie was one of many celebrities who shared the Human Rights Campaign’s red logo for marriage equality via social media outlets. HRC launched the media campaign last Monday afternoon in support of the two marriage cases that went before the Supreme Court last week. This was a small example of the huge support Fergie has shown for the LGBT community.
