The Black Eyed Peas star Fergie has written a letter to herself at the age of 17, encouraging her to ditch her "bad perm" and "giant bangs", but praising her principles.
The 32-year-old undertook the exercise in her role as covergirl for Seventeen magazine's June edition.
The "letter to me at 17" reads, "Sure, you'll be a giant flirt and wear sexy clothes, but you'll never take it to an unhealthy level and act on it."
Fergie also warns herself about the rough patches ahead in her life, including her drug addiction and debt problems - but adds,"Don't worry. You'll always come back to your roots."
