Fergie on curbing her appetite:

"I'm not going to lie: There are times I play mind tricks on myself, like that the french fries are poison. With desserts, I'll let myself have just one bite, but I'll look like a freak when I'm eating it, like when I did Duncan Hines commercials as a kid, just savoring every morsel."

On criticism from gossipmongers:

"It has hurt me in the past when people say things like how ‘fugly' I am or how horrible I look. I've had to learn not to give it such a high priority in life .... Look, when you're trying to juggle all of this in your life, sometimes you're not going to look perfect. I don't have time to get a facial every couple of days."

On having high expectations:

"For my album, I wanted to arrive at the MTV Awards in a British buggy on hydraulics. It didn't quite work out that way, but, yes, I have all these big, huge dreams."

On her relationship style:

"I'm a relationship girl, a romantic. When I was younger, I used to be the cheater. I'm not talking about going all the way -- I wasn't doing that in high school! But I'd have boyfriends, and then spring break would come around and I'd be a little bit naughty."
