The Black Eyed Peas have announced that they’ll be working with James Cameron, one of the Most Powerful Celebrities as voted by Forbes and the brilliant man behind the 3D success of Avatar, to direct their 3D concert for their tour. Looks like they’ll really have “that future Boom Boom Boom“!
Will.I.Am egotistically explains to Vibe magazine:
“We have the biggest director because we are the biggest group on the planet. The Peas are filming it in South America. People will be able to see us in the theater with the 3D glasses and everything…There will be a storyline that [Cameron] came up with, which will be dope. It’s a full-length film and it’s based around our tour activities. We’ve toured from America and Europe, to the Middle East, South America, Asia and Africa.”
Happy Canada Day, Everyone! And with the 4th of July coming, I thought I’d write about MY top 5 reasons for celebrating being Canadian or American in 2009. All joking aside in my lists, I think citizens of either countries have a lot to be grateful for and should take their respective days to reflect and celebrate – safely of course!
Top 5 Reasons To Celebrate 4th of July This Year
5. Back from Iraq. On June 30th (yesterday), the deadline for withdrawal of American combat troops, Iraquis celebrated with a parade, declaring National Sovereignty Day. Needless to say, military families in the United States are celebrating the return of their loved ones, just in time for the 4th of July. One of the final chapters in the war in Iraq comes to an end.
4. Miss America is no longer Miss America. The anti-gay wedding witch, Carrie Prejean was was sent away with her broom when her crown was stripped away from her about a month ago for not doing her job. She had created a lot of controversy about her public opposition to gay marriage, in response to a question asked by Perez Hilton. Speaking of Perez Hilton…
If you haven’t heard of the drama that happened this past weekend between Perez Hilton and the Black Eyed Peas, then where have you been! This kind of stuff really only happens at the MTV music awards- certainly not in Canada! Donovan, Topher, and Jonny were at the MMVAs after parties in Toronto where everything went down- and Donovan even witnessed some of it!
Basically, at one of the after parties, Fergie- of the Black Eyed Peas- went up to to Perez and was saying that she thought they “were cool” and was wondering why he was talking smack about her and the Black Eyed Peas recently. They exchanged words and Fergie did not look pleased as she stomped away. This was the conversation that Donovan had witnessed. (See his up-and-coming Toronto recap for more details).
At another one of the after-after parties (don’t laugh), Will.I.Am- another member of the Black Eyed Peas- went up to Perez and demanded that he stop writing about them on his site. Perez said “he’d try” but “wouldn’t make any promises.” Will.I.Am accused Perez of disrespecting him and was furious to the point that eventually Perez said to him you’re not a f*cking artist, you’re a f*cking f*ggot. In Perez’s mind, that is one thing the The Black Eyed Pea would not want to hear said about him. By the way Perez, that’s nothing ANYONE ever wants to hear… least of all the gay community to which oh-so clearly belong to. Thanks for that. But, really, do we expect any more from him?
Again, at yet another location, Will.I.Am and his entourage seemed to be a magnet to Perez. When the blogging dye-job-victim decided to leave, Will.I.Am’s manager jumped Perez from behind and punched him in the face three times. Another GREAT celebrity decision.
In my experience, if I have a feeling that tonight is gonna be a good night, it ends up bring really bad. I set my expectations way to high, hoping that it will all end with a nightcap and it always just end up with me regretting that last shot. Now if you’re the Black Eyed Peas, I’m sure when you get that same feeling it will in fact, be a good night. You can see the proof in the newly released video by the quartet for the David Guetta produced “I Gotta Feelin”
I haven’t received an advance copy of the new album yet (HINT HINT), so I don’t know the tracks that are on it. And before today I hadn’t listened to this track at all. It is completely different than “Boom Boom Pow”, a little softer, not as aggressive, as you see the peas each getting ready in their respective pads. Fergie is, of course, half naked with a feather boa and FEROCIOUSLY painted nails, singing to herself in the mirror. Will.I.Am is going at his huuur with a hair pic. Taboo is at his text messages in a standard music video scene, and Apl.De.Ap is doing what he does in his big glasses.
