Josh Duhamel knows firsthand how busy his wife Fergie‘s schedule is, and he says that her recently announced hiatus from a second solo album is not just so she can hang out with him.
It’s because the Black Eyed Pea needs a break!
“She’s not doing it because of me,” he told me today. “She wants a little time. They’ve been working her like a rented mule for 8 years. She wants a little time off.”
In fact, they both do:
“It’s very sweet,” he said of the press perception that she’s putting her career on hold for him. “And I mean, we do want to take some time and I’m excited to have more time with her, but we always consider the other person when we’re doing something and make sure we’re scheduling enough time to be together. That’s the only way to make it work.”
