Yes, it’s Fergie! This blog’s favourite talentless (former) meth addict is now being paid $4M to get songs on her next solo album that include references to Candies clothing.

I am already betting that in at least one song, Fergie will SPELL Candies out. Other than that, maybe I can help her with some suggested rhymes for Candies.

Bees
Fleas
Please (expect that one to be used)
Trees
Sneeze
Disease
Monkeys
Breeze
Knees (expect that one to be used)
Seas
Mammaries (she may have to look that one up)
Squeeze (that one could be used)
Sprees
Fergie’s (accent on the 2nd syllable – expect her to go for that as she can’t resist saying her own name in songs)
Black Eyed Peas (expect that one too)

Maybe she should hire me. I’m so down with the C to the A to the N… aw, you know the rest.

Evidently it’s not enough to pay her to wear the clothing at appearances or in videos. It’s not enough to pay her to do commercials or print ads. We now have product placement in pop songs. That’s some bad and desperate marketing.

    Kind of ironic that I located this blog post while searching for Candies clothing web site isn’t it?
    Perhaps it isn’t such a bad marketing strategy after all.
