Fergie's jet love

(BANG) - Fergie can't give up her private jet.

The 32-year-old singer hates travelling on commercial flights, and insists she will keep on using her own personal plane despite the damage it is causing to the environment.

Fergie - who performed with her band the Black Eyed Peas at Live Earth London, which was held to raise awareness of global warming - said: "The best thing about fame is flying on a private jet, as I don't have to go through security or wait at a regular airport. I love it - I'm not going to lie."

The 'My Humps' singer also revealed she is an extravagant spender and wastes a fortune on designer bags and Rolex watches for her actor boyfriend Josh Duhamel.

She explained: "My business manager always wants to know why I spend so much money on bags.

"Sometimes he'll get a bill for $1,500 and wonder what it's for, when it's for one bag!"

"I've bought Josh two Rolexes because I want him to start a collection."
