With buzz about the Black Eyed Peas possibly splitting up as a group, front woman Fergie set the record straight this week, according to new reports, revealing that the “Boom Boom Pow” ensemble is only taking a “break.”


“Were going on hiatus,” Fergie told TMZ and added that she,, and Taboo are simply just, “taking a break.”


But, no need to fret!  The 36-year-old explained that a break doesn’t mean the “I Got a Feeling” group will not be back to make more music together soon.


“A break is not a breakup.  You better watch Friends,” Fergie added in a bit of humor to the situation.


And, group member Taboo is on the same page, as he told TMZ the same day, “Were a family, dude.  Don’t believe the hype!”
