Beckley’s Register-Herald newspaper quoted Greenbrier owner Jim Justice about the Peas and their goodwill toward West Virginia.
Turns out, Jim Justice is Fergie-licious:
Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier resort, admits he was thrilled with the performance by the hip-hop group Friday during their appearance at the state fairgrounds in conjunction with the Greenbrier Classic. Especially their seemingly 1 million references to West Virginia.
“I did not ask (them to do that),” Justice said. “That just shows class. I met those guys and Fergie backstage and they are just so nice and so genuine. And they get up on stage and … that was just phenomenal. It was over the top to me. I loved it to death.”
His favorite concert of the three?
“Let’s not be a dumb bunny here,” Justice said, laughing. “I got to hug Fergie and everything, and she is one major good-looking girl.”
