She was born in Hacienda Heights, California, United States on March 27, 1975.
The following spring, Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine offered her a permanent spot to take over vocal duties.
The two hit singles back to back kept the Black Eyed Peas on the top for 26 consecutive weeks, from April 18 through October 16.
And yep, that's a gold anklet of sorts over one of the boots.
She started her singing career with studio album The Dutchess, released on September 19, 2006.
And at that time, she made some fashion choices that, well.
