Josh Duhamel is ‘excited’ about spending some time with his wife Fergie when she begins her break from music.  The ‘Meet Me Halfway’ singer has decided to put plans for a second solo LP ‘ the follow-up to 2006′s ‘The Dutchess’ ‘ on hold and have some time away from the pop world and her band the Black Eyed Peas, and the actor can’t wait.

He said: ‘We do want to take some time together and I’m excited to have more time with her, but we always consider the other person when we’re doing something and make sure we’re scheduling enough time to be together. That’s the only way to make it work.”

But the ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ star insists Fergie isn’t only just taking a break for him, she also wants some time for herself.

He added to E! Online: ‘She’s not doing it just because of me. She wants a little time. They’ve been working her like a rented mule for eight years. She wants a little time off.”

Josh, 38, plans to spend his free time with his 36-year-old wife working up a serious sweat ‘ in the gym.

He revealed: ‘Exercise is the one thing we love to do when we’re home. She pushes me and I push her and I think it’s important.”

Speaking about her decision to have a break in 2011 rather than make new music, Fergie said: ”ve got a lot on my plate and this year is more about simplifying and really paying attention to the projects that I have and spending some time with the hubby, you know?”

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

transformersrevengeofthefallen Alien robots have transformed into box-office superstars with $200 million in domestic ticket sales in just five days.”Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” took in $112 million in the sequel’s first weekend and $201.2 million since opening Wednesday, according to Sunday estimates from Paramount, which is distributing the DreamWorks movie.It was well on the way to becoming the year’s top-grossing movie. That was a few million dollars higher than other studios were expecting for the movie, and the figures could change a bit when final numbers are released Monday.Still, it was a colossal start for the “Transformers” sequel, whose opening five days amounted to nearly two-thirds of the $319 million domestic total the franchise’s first movie did over its entire run in 2007.  Now playing in almost every other country except India, the movie added $185.8 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $387 million. That’s well over half the $708 million global total for the first “Transformers.”  That first movie began with a $70.5 million weekend. Based on how well the sequel has done, “Revenge of the Fallen” could join the handful of movies that have topped the $400 million mark domestically. “I’d say given the momentum it has, it’s got a real shot,” said Rob Moore, vice chairman at Paramount.  For the first five days, the “Transformers” sequel was second only to last summer’s “The Dark Knight” with $203.8 million.  This was the biggest opening weekend of this year, surpassing the $85.1 million debut of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in early May.  The sequel began with $60.6 million on its opening day Wednesday. That also was second only to “The Dark Knight,” which had the biggest box-office day ever with $67.2 million on opening day.  With $14.4 million at 169 IMAX theaters, “Transformers” set a record for a five-day opening in the giant-screen format, nearly doubling the previous best of $7.3 million set by “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”  “Transformers” overcame harsh reviews from critics, who called it a visual-effects extravaganza without much story or human heart. Director Michael Bay has a history of bad reviews and big box office with “Armageddon” and “Pearl Harbor.”  “Michael Bay knows how to build the perfect summer box-office beast,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for “He squarely aimed right at the demographic, right at what summer movie-goers want, and he put it on the screen. And audiences can’t seem to get enough of it.”  The sequel broadened the franchise’s fan base. Females accounted for just 40 percent of the audience for the first “Transformers” but 46 percent for the sequel, Moore said.  Much of that was due to the on-screen romance for the characters played by Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, who were relative unknowns when the first movie came out. With a $13 million weekend, Disney and Pixar Animation’s “Up” became the year’s top-grossing film domestically at $250.2 million. It surpassed Paramount’s “Star Trek,” which did $3.6 million over the weekend to hit a $246.2 million total.The reign of “Up” at the top of the year’s box-office chart will be short-lived, though. The “Transformers” sequel should shoot past it in a matter of days. The Warner Bros. melodrama “My Sister’s Keeper,” with Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin, had a so-so debut, coming in at No. 5 with $12 million. Breslin plays a daughter conceived as a donor for her older sister, who has leukemia.  Summit Entertainment’s Iraq War drama “The Hurt Locker” had a strong start in limited release, taking in $144,000 in four theaters for an average of $36,000 a cinema. That compares to an average of $26,453 in 4,234 theaters for “Transformers.” Starring Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie as members of a U.S. bomb squad in Baghdad, “The Hurt Locker” has a chance to become the first real commercial success among recent war-on-terror movies, which audiences generally have avoided.  “The Hurt Locker” has earned stellar reviews since debuting at film festivals last year. It rolls out to more theaters on July 10.  Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Final figures will be released Monday.

1. “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” $112 million.

2. “The Proposal,” $18.5 million.

3. “The Hangover,” $17.2 million.

4. “Up,” $13 million.

5. “My Sister’s Keeper,” $12 million.

6. “Year One,” $5.8 million.

7. “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” $5.4 million.

8. “Star Trek,” $3.6 million.

9. “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian,” $3.5 million.

10. “Away We Go,” $1.7 million.

Fergie admits to fancying women

the-black-eyed-peasFergie has revealed she is bisexual. The Black Eyed Peas beauty, who is married to ‘Transformers’ actor Josh Duhamel, admits she has enjoyed several lesbian trysts – but she could never fully commit to a woman.  She is quoted by Britain’s The Sun newspaper as saying: “Put it this way, I’ve experimented definitely, but I have never had a steady girlfriend.”  The 34-year-old singer – real name Stacy Ann Ferguson – is currently enjoying success with The Black Eyed Peas’ latest track ‘Boom Boom Pow’ which has topped the charts in the US and the UK.  However, Fergie says she is more excited about the band’s next single because the promo features steamy “girl-on-girl” scenes.  She explained: “You’ll like our next video, for ‘I Got A Feeling’, because I have a little girl-on-girl tease section of the video. I met the girls right before we did the scene. They were beautiful. They were hot. One of them was the director’s girlfriend – so he was happy!”  Fergie is not the only star to admit to having relationships with both men and women. Josh’s ‘Transformers’ co-star Megan Fox, 23 – who is dating Brian Austin Green – recently admitted she is attracted to women.  She said: “I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. I think people are born bisexual and they make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society.”  ‘Mean Girls’ actress Lindsay Lohan enjoyed a tumultuous relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson, while ‘Poker Face’ singer Lady Gaga also claims to enjoy romancing women
