VIDEOS & VISUALS: Will.I.Am
WHAT: Will.i.am seems to be having difficulties remembering the lyrics to songs lately and decided to jog his memory in a technologically savvy yet unprofessional way. During the Black Eyed Peas’ performance with Stromae on the French television show “Taratata,” Will.i.am took out his Blackberry and began reading lyrics when words failed him and continued throughout to do so throughout the performance. However, he managed to remember the lyrics “now baby don’t you stop it.” The group performed a mashup of Stromae’s Euro hit “Alors on Danse” and the Black Eyed Peas’ “Don’t Stop The Party.”
UP CLOSE & PERSONAL: T.I.
WHAT: T.I., who is currently serving time for violating probation, reached out to his fans by writing a letter.
“I can’t even begin to tell y’all how much being on the outside looking in, having to witness all that’s going on (and not going on) in the game affects me,” wrote T.I. “Not being able to do what I love especially. It’s like a whole other sentence within itself. But I really do appreciate all the love, respect, shout outs and salutations during this very difficult period in my life.” In addition, he will be releasing a track in the new few weeks. Having reflected on his life, he came to a few conclusions. “But none of them is as strong as my determination to conquer my own imperfections and my will to WIN NO MATTER WHAT!!!” he wrote.
