Will.i.am reveals he once collaborated with 'real Fergie' Sarah Ferguson over tea

Looks like Will.i.am has found a new Fergie to collaborate with!

The Black Eyed Peas rapper was a guest on Lorraine this week, where he revealed he once had a musical session with the "real Fergie" -- Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York -- at her house over tea.

"She writes poetry," he explained. "A long time ago we had tea. She was like, 'You should come over my house for tea.' So I went over her house for tea and she said, 'You know I write poetry?' I was like, 'You know what'd be really cool? Is if you recited poetry to some of my music.'"

"I thought it'd be fun because, like, everybody knows me and [former Black Eyed Peas frontwoman] Fergie. But to have Fergie, real Fergie, drop some poetry lyricals over my beats?"

Speaking with ET last June, the singer Fergie joked that becoming a mommy to son Axl, now 5, has made her question the "inappropriate" lyrics she often hears in music, including songs she wrote with Will.i.am and the band.
