Fergie denies product placement lyrics claims

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has denied reports that she will use her songs to promote products.

It had been suggested she had signed a deal with clothing brand Candie's that would involve her including the fashion line in the lyrics of her songs

Fergie aside, there are SO many songs these days that are basically just advertisements, so I thought I'd start a thread to expose some of the most blantant and ridiculous ones.

Such as:

There Goes My Life, Kenny Chesney:

She had that Honda loaded down with Abercrombie clothes
And fifteen pairs of shoes and his American Express

Two lines, three ads!

I hear Christina Aguilera also has a deal with Candies.

Thus, her hit song, "Candieman".

Seriously though - commercial music selling lyrics advertising? I'm so shocked. Honestly, I couldn't care less if these industry-manufactured pop stars sell advertising in their lyrics. I mean, the entire package is an advertisement, from their bodies to their videos to their albums.
