Pop Star Fergie Names Son After Guns N’ Roses Frontman Axl Rose
Apparently pop singer Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas was inspired by her performance with Slash at the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show when she joined him on a rendition of Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine.”
The pop star gave birth yesterday to a baby whom she and her actor hubby Josh Duhamel promptly named Axl, after the Guns N’ Roses frontman, Axl Rose.
We agree that the “Sweet Child Of Mine” is a way better lullaby than say, maybe, “Fergalicious,” although that should go down in the annals of music history as one of the most profound pop songs ever written.
