Fergie explains that she turned to ecstasy and crystal meth to alleiviate the stresses of her career and soon found herself weighing 90 lbs. and in the throes of addiction-induced paranoia.
"I didn't know how to deal so I got into a scene," she says. "With any drugs everything great at the beginning and slowly your life starts to spiral down... My rock bottom was my brain had been playing a lot of tricks on me. I thought the FBI was after me. I was living in this alternate reality.
"There was a whole dancing ninja on my balcony," she adds. "My mind was going some places."
