After Fergie performed a jazzy take on the “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the 2018 NBA All-Star game, she was met with criticism from, where else, Twitter. She took a chance by putting a new spin on the national anthem, but it didn’t go over so well. Fergie has since addressed her performance, and now her ex-husband Josh Duhamel has publicly stood up to defend her as well.

Earlier this week Duhamel and the couple’s son Axl were spotted bringing flowers to Fergie’s home to reportedly cheer her up. However, if anyone is worried that the national anthem debacle has taken a toll on the singer, Duhamel insists that “she’s fine,” and said, “she’s about as resilient as they come.”

Fergie already addressed her less-than-stellar performance, and while she explained her choice, it’s important to note that she didn’t apologize. Sometimes you just have a hard day at work, and then you pick yourself up and try to do better next time.
