New Slash video: “Beautiful Dangerous” with Fergie

Slash has just released “Beautiful Dangerous,” the latest video from his self-titled solo record.

The steamy clip features Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas, who heats things up with the guitarist. "She went to a dark place," Slash told Us magazine, of her portrayal of a crazed fan who ties him to a bed, kisses him and teases him with a knife - while clad in leather lingerie. "She nailed it."

“I wanted to stalk him; just a normal day at the office!” said Fergie, who came up with the concept for the video.

For more Slash, check out some TV tonight. “Looking forward to Jamming on Dave Letterman tonight w/Paul Shaffer & co. Iii|; ),” he posted today.

Fergie will receive the Woman Of The Year Award at the Billboard Women in Music Event on December 2 in New York.

"I am humbled and excited to accept the Billboard Woman of the Year Award," Fergie says. "Being honored by Billboard is a great career achievement."

Fergie and BEP spent the past year touring the world in support of their 2009 album, "The E.N.D." BEP own the longest streak of consecutive weeks spent at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart by any artist in the chart's 52-year history, with 2009 singles "Boom Boom Pow" reigning for 12 weeks and "I Gotta Feeling" for 14. In addition, "I Gotta Feeling" is the best-selling digital song in Nielsen SoundScan history.

"The E.N.D." is first album in two decades by a group to yield five top 10 songs on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart. The album has sold 2.8 million copies in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan.

On November 30, the BEP will release "The Beginning," their sixth album and an aptly-titled follow-up to "The E.N.D." The album's first single is "The Time (The Dirty Bit)," which will be released November 9.

"Fergie took the music industry by storm the moment she came onto the scene, and we're thrilled to celebrate her career achievements and incredible successes over the past year by honoring her with the Billboard Woman of the Year Award," says Bill Werde, Billboard's editorial director. "Fergie is a unique artist with great business savvy, style and an unbelievable dedication to philanthropic efforts, making her an inspiration to aspiring female artists everywhere."
