5th biggest opening weekend ever
The singer’s performance at the NBA All-Star game had some fans bewildered

(NEWSER) – Fergie has responded to widespread criticism surrounding her decidedly non-traditional rendition of the national anthem at Sunday’s NBA All-Star game. The 42-year-old singer attempted a slowed down, jazzier version of the song in what she now admits was an artistic risk gone awry, per People. “I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” she said in a statement. “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.” Fergie’s performance was panned online almost immediately and was compared by some to “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” as sung by Marilyn Monroe to John F. Kennedy in 1962, only “screechier,” writes Variety.

Critical health insurance stripped from children, seniors, people with disabilities, and low-wage workers. State governments in utter fiscal disarray. Above all, more poverty, suffering, and homelessness; less opportunity and justice; and worsened racial and economic inequality.

Is this the country that most Americans want? According to recent polling, the answer is no. Yet this is the harsh vision set out by the Trump Administration’s proposed FY 2019 budget released yesterday. While the outline is merely a proposal, and does not have immediate bearing on the recent bipartisan spending deal, it represents the administration’s latest attack on low-income people and people of color-and it must be swiftlyly and categorically rejected.
