Fergie says she's 'thrilled' to play a prostitute
Fergie said that she is 'thrilled' to be playing a prostitute in an upcoming film.

The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman will portray Saraghina in 'Nine', which stars actors Daniel Day Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench and is an adaptation of the Tony-winning musical.

Speaking to the Associated Press about the role, Fergie said, "She's basically a prostitute on the beach. She introduces (Day-Lewis' character) to the world of sexuality. It's a very strong song.

"I'm just thrilled I get to play a character...I'm going to be singing as a character, and that's what's really exciting to me."

The Grammy-winning singer added that she's "speechless" about working with the renowned actors in the film.

"I'm definitely going to be a sponge on set. I want to pick up on everything that all these brilliant actors are bringing to the table. I'm probably going to be the quietest that I've ever been while working just because I want to watch and learn."

Fergie also disclosed details about the Black Eyed Peas' new album. "It's a new sound," she said. "We're going into the future. We're not doing the same old thing. We're not trying to copy what's out there on the radio. We're being artistic and pushing the envelope."

It will be the band's first full-length album since 2005's 'Monkey Business'.
