Fergie has definitely not left the music scene. On Friday, she released the music video to her new song M.I.L.F. $, her first single since L.A. Love (La La) in 2014, according to a report by RollingStone.com’s Daniel Kreps.
Directed by Colin Tilley, the music video showcases some of the more well-known celebrity moms; Kim Kardashian, wife of Kanye West and mother of North West, and Chrissy Teigen, wife of John Legend and mother of Luna Stephens, are perhaps the most notable of the crew. Fergie is the wife of Josh Duhamel and the mother of Axl Duhamel.
Whereas the scenes in the video and the song name’s original acronym may say otherwise, Fergie has said her latest hit is about “empowering women who do it all.” In fact, “M.I.L.F.,” in this case, actually stands for “moms I’d like to follow.”
“They have a career, a family and still find the time to take care of themselves and feel sexy; with a wink of course,” Fergie said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.
The video, with its supposed female-empowering message, is actually pretty funny. In the beginning, the “milfman” is seen driving through “Milfville” as the aforementioned M.I.L.F.s act as neighbors. Eventually, they make their way to a diner with stripper poles, a spa and a classroom with letterman jacket-wearing jocks. The video ends with each M.I.L.F. shooting their own “Got M.I.L.F.?” ads, an obvious play on the classic “Got Milk?” ad.
Really, though, no amount of words can do this video justice. Here’s Fergie and her cast of M.I.L.F.s.
