Fergie to receive pro-LGBT award

Fergie is a pop singer the likes of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Janet Jackson and now the “Black Eyed Peas” singer has received an award for her work on behalf of LGBT communities that places her firmly in that league of divas.

Fergie – who is currently expecting her first child with husband Josh Duhamel – will receive Logo network’s “Always Next, Forever Now” award to recognize the singer for her work with amFAR, the MAC Aids Fun and other organizations benefiting individuals impacted with HIV/AIDS.

Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Janet Jackson are all previous recipients of the award.
