Fergie, American Idol

Frank Micelotta/Fox

If you watch American Idol or have an Internet connection (and obviously the answer is yes to at least one of those things because you're reading this), then chances are you either saw firsthand or have since caught a glimpse of last week's episode in which the Black Eyed Peas took to the stage.

And noticed, like millions of others, that Fergie appeared, well, different. Let's say…refreshed.

You see where we're going with this?

Speculation inevitably followed that Fergie might be pregnant, sick, recently and repetitively stung by a hive of bees, or something else—anything else—that might explain the apparently changing nature of her face. And then the wisdom of crowds decided to run with this explanation: she must have had a little work done. Err, right?


Sheesh, can't a girl even mix up her spring color palette without winding up in a split-screen with Jocelyn Wildenstein? Because that, according to hubby Josh Duhamel, is the only thing Fergie's done differently these days.

"I thought she looked amazing," he told Ryan Seacrest this morning, before going on to squash the speculation.

"It's amazing. You put a different color on your lips and, uh, rumors fly. But she's the same, she's the same Fergie…I sleep right next to her every night. I like it."

So they're going with the lipstick defense? Bold call. That's nearly crazy enough to work.

Hey—we said "nearly."
