Fergie: Anthem 'didn't strike the intended tone'

And Lithuanian singer Simona Milinyte called for a bit of "respect" for the artist, adding "it was just a bad day" for Fergie.

Fergie tells TMZ.com that she was trying something new and did her best while performing.

But what was she thinking?

Maybe she would've been better of singing "Oh, Canada"? Players stifled laughs and people at home couldn't help but wonder where the song was headed.

- Maybe it was an homage to Marvin Gaye.

Draymond Green went viral during the NBA All-Star Game for something that's hard to imagine he ever considered.

"Full House"/"Fuller House" star Bob Saget tweeted "Fergie's rendition of the National Anthem was originally written by Francis Scott Out of Key".

It's fair to say that allowing the fewest amount of goals is pretty much the first step to victory in any hockey game. They make it very hard to make cleans plays through those tight areas, which is a good game plan on their part.

Political scientists rank Trump last, Lincoln first in presidential greatness survey
Trump was also rated below William Henry Harrison who died after only a month in office - from March 4, 1841 to April 4, 1841. Respondents gave each president a score of 0-100 for "overall greatness", then each president's scores were averaged.

One person is supporting Fergie though.

- Maybe she meant to pull a Pfeiffer.

Honestly, it's a lot, and Twitter had many, many, many, many, *many* thoughts. That would be enough to make anyone in need of a little pick-me-up, but it didn't stop there. If it'd been successful, that would have been the ideal moment for the pro-kneelers to rush in with a "Gotcha!" The eight-time Grammy Award victor admitted she took a risk as part of a honest apology.

In an interview with iNews, the singer detailed the impact her use of crystal meth had on her daily life. This is, admittedly, the most outlandish of all the theories presented here.

The tone online was much different following the apology, with some saluting the singer for taking a chance (even though it didn't pay off like she'd hoped).

As previously reported, Fergie appeared at the NBA All Star game on Sunday night, where she attempted to give a jazzy rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner".
