Here is the real answer.
Fergie says she gets her "fire" from her Hispanic ancestry.
The Black Eyed Peas singer believes she inherited the passionate side of her character from her Mexican grandmother.
She said, "Yes, I have Mexican in my ancestry. My Dad's grandmother was born in Guanajuato. I'm very proud of it - that's probably where I get my fire!"
"I love going to Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is my spot. I love to hang out by the pool, go fishing, shop for furniture, and I've taken painting classes over there. It's beautiful."
However, the 33-year-old singer admits she doesn't like to put too much emphasises on her Latin roots.
Fergie told Latina magazine, "I don't go around claiming it big time because there are many more full-bred Latinas that are out there to represent."
