Fergie Guest-Starring on Disney XD’s “Kick Buttowski”

She may have starred on Kids Incorporated as a girl… But StacyFergieFerguson is now having her Disney moment.

The 36-year-old part-Mexican singer is providing a guest voice on this week’s episode of the Disney XD cartoon Kick Buttowski — Suburban Daredevil.


Fergie plays April, a girl Kick’s brother Brad asks on a date. She agrees, but mainly because she’s charmed by Kick (she lovingly calls him “Helmet Dude”).

The Evel Knievel wannabe wastes no time leveraging this status to take advantage of his brother. His goal: to get Brad’s “Golden Access Card” so he can see the new Rock Callahan movie. NBA star Dwight Howard also guest stars in the episode, reprising his role as Callahan.

The episode, titled “Bromance,” airs this Saturday at 11am/10c on Disney XD.

The Black Eyed Peas singer previously guest-voiced a character on Fox’s The Cleveland Show.

Michele: A Candie’s Girl?

She’s the “people’s choice” for Favorite TV Comedy Actress… And, Lea Michele could soon be Candie’s choice…

The 25-year-old part-Spanish Glee star is reportedly the new spokesmodel for the fashion brand.


“Lea’s fans are the same as Candie’s fans,” an insider for the company tells E! News.

Lea will reportedly appear in a series of print ads later this year as part of her endorsement deal, according to other sources.

Representatives for the singer/actress—who rocked the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday—and Candie’s representatives have yet to release an official statement about the alleged contract though.

Should Michele sign a deal with the clothing company, she’ll replace Candie’s most recent spokesmodel Vanessa Hudgens.

Other previous celebrities who’ve pitched for the brand include: Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson and Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson.

Michele has previously starred in commercials for Dove, Chevrolet, Nike and HP TouchPad.
