We all knew Fergie wasn't just some tarty hip-popper in Barbarella-inspired body gear when she rocked out with Mick Jagger and U2 at last year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concerts. Heck, she was even jamming hardcore to Metallica in her seat right across the aisle from me during the metal band's set. And, don't forget, she recently duetted with Slash on his self-titled solo effort.

So, I'm not too shocked and awed that she's about to go all Joan Jett on us again at this year's Sunset Strip Music Festival. There's a special tribute to the famed Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver axeman on Thursday night, August 26, at the House of Blues, and he'll take the stage with the Black Eyed Peas chanteuse and other industry pals at the fest right on the strip on Saturday, August 28.

I just shot Fergie Fergs an email to tell her how Fergalicious I think this whole shebang is and she told only me, "I'm really excited to rock out with Slash. My inner rock chick will emerge that night!"

Whoa, can't wait! I've seen it before and it's a sight to behold. If you wanna pop by, and who the "F" wouldn't, visit sunsetstripmusicfestival.com for details.
