Black Eyed Peas

We have a soft spot for Black Eyed Peas since they were basically the soundtrack to our teenage years.

However, the band performed at the Champions League Final *sans Fergie* last night, and it's safe to say that nobody was impressed.

First of all, there is no Black Eyed Peas without Fergie (in our opinion), and well, Twitter was just baffled as to why they were performing in the first place.

The lads, Will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap (we forgot about their stage names), basically just bopped around to Boom Boom Pow for a few minutes.

RTÉ's George Hamilton then described the band as "Will.i.am and his mates." Brilliant.

Oh, where did it all go wrong?


Earlier this week, Will.i.am confirmed what everyone already knew – Fergie is no longer a member of The Black Eyed Peas.

The rapper revealed that the trio now hope to collaborate with other 'good female' artists in the future, and they'll probably need to  – because let's face it, Fergie was The Black Eyed Peas.

Speaking to Ahlan!, Will said, ''Since the beginning of The Black Eyed Peas, we’ve always had amazing vocalists that appeared on the mic with us.''

‘People like Macy Gray, Esthero, Debi Nova, Fergie. On Elephunk, there were several females that appeared on that album. Obviously Fergie was the featured female..''

‘But Black Eyed Peas are pushing it forward in terms of content, technology and experiences on our new project, Masters of the Sun.’

So, who could possibly replace the M.I.L.F.$ singer?

Well, reports have linked former Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger, to the role. 

Will.I.Am confirmed in the interview that the X Factor judge does feature on their new project, but he added that he didn't "want to go into details [about] how she's involved yet".

Either way, we're excited about what the collaboration will have in store. 



In a move which he hopes will inspire others,  Black Eyed Peas member Taboo has revealed that he underwent 12 weeks of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with cancer in 2014.

In an interview with People magazine, the 41-year-old rapper explained that he was dealt the devastating blow when he admitted himself to hospital with what he assumed was a bout of flu.

Unfortunately for the popular star, doctors diagnosed Taboo with stage 2 testicular cancer – a diagnosis which required an aggressive form of chemotherapy.

"It all started with a pain in my back and abdomen," he  said "The very next day I went into surgery to have the 'mother ship' removed. But my fight had just begun."

Stunned by his band mate's diagnosis, will.i.am did his utmost to support Taboo, with the latter explaining: "Will.i.am instantly reached out to a great doctor who helped me figure out a treatment plan. I was racing against the clock."

While Taboo explained that there were times when he wanted to give up, he sought inspiration from individuals who had gone through the same experience and focussed his attention on music.

"I began channelling my energy into the thing that keeps me alive and spirited: music. I wanted to share my story and inspire others like those who had inspired me."

Two years after his journey began, Taboo has confirmed he is officially cancer-free and has used his experience to to help others.

"By the grace of God I'm alive and along with my partner @americancancersociety we are gonna help millions of people going thru the same fight I went thru," he tweeted.




Remember that picture of Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie wetting herself on stage? Well, she will never forget it.

The star, who was promoting her new single this week, opened up on the embarrassing incident that she has branded as ‘the most unattractive moment of my life’.

Recalling the moment during an interview on Hot 97, the 39-year-old explained: “We were late for stage, driving down the freeway, it’s Friday traffic…get to the stage, we have to start the show right then.”

She continued: “I’m running on and we jump and do Let’s Get It Started, and I get crazy and I jump and run across the stage and my adrenaline was running and, gosh.”

Gosh indeed. A beady-eyed photographer captured the unfortunate incident on camera and, pretty soon, it was all over the Internet.

Yes, it’s an unfortunate thing to happen, but it’s also kind of impressive to hear just how much energy she throws into her performances!
