Fergie doesn't want to be known as just a chick Pea anymore, and having the #1 song on the Billboard charts might just be the way to do that.

Fergie Ferg's new single "London Bridge" achieved second biggest leap in Billboard Hot 100 history last week by going from #86 to #5, was featured on this week's episode of "Entourage" and is now the top single in the country.

Fergie told "We wanted to make it more of a tough feel, which the song is."

If by "tough" she means "dancing like a ho," then it appears as though the Billboard charts are going to need prophylactics.
