The Black Eyed Peas Are Taking An Indefinite Hiatus

Black Eyed Peas On Break

Fans won't be dancing to any new hits from The Black Eyed Peas for a while.

The funkadelic band broke the news in Staffordshire that they were about to begin an indefinite break from making music.

Promises were made that while they wouldn't be performing again for a long time, it wouldn't be for forever.

The band does plan on reuniting once again in the future, with Will.i.am tweeting:

The @Bep will take a break after the beginning…just like we did from monkey business to the e.n.d…but it doesn't mean we stop creating.

The last time they took a break, it lasted four years while Fergie rocked her solo career.

This time we're betting it has to do with babies. Little Fergalicious babies.

What do U think?

    The Funkadelic band? Dont You dare use those two names in a sentence - its an insult to real funk and George Clinton - And Finally, I dont have to hear that garbage ass music for a while…



  3. 3

    I was at the gig in Alton Towers (Staffordshire) they SMASHED IT! Then bummed everybody out with the news they were calling it quits :\



  4. 4

    GOD I hope this is permanent



  5. 5

    I was at this gig in Alton Towers (Staffordshire) they absolutely SMASHED IT! Then bummed everyone out by telling the crowd they were taking a break! :\



  6. 6

  7. 7

    I love the BEP but it's time for them to take a break. These artists need to realize that even fans get sick of them when they're out there too much. Give us something to look forward to rather then drowning us with songs. There are some others out there that need to take a break also. Use the down time to try and come up with something creative and different too rather then this autotuned club crap. BEP needs to go back to their Where Is The Love days.



  9. 9

    Great news. My ears won't bleed until they're back.



  10. 10

    Good because there new album was absolutely terrible. Fergie is getting too old she needs a new face and needs to learn how to perform live.



  11. 11

    I don't care- I have some strange bias against Fergie.. but I bet she's trying to get preggers.



  12. 12

    I heard that they are into some radical polyamorical thing with Oprah, Stedman, and Gayle. But it would be good if they were to take, say, a few decades off. I would like to lick Fergie dry too.



  13. 13

    Why do they need to go on hiatus? Is there not enough music out for them to plagiarize?



  14. 14

    Good luck BEP! Enjoy your rest and your family.

    Wasn't there a story about a year ago announcing the same thing?

    Re: themadprincess – Don't just pick on Fergie please….that is not cool and actually sexist….the men are ugly if not much more ugly than Fergie…cool to have an opinion, however don't target just women. Thank you.



  17. 17

    Finally!! I hope it's a lonnnng one - and by long one I mean permanently.



  18. 18

    I'm proud to say that I don't know one Black Eye Pea song. Not one of em on my iPOD



  19. 19

    YAYYYYY!



  20. 20

    can they take gaga with them?



  21. 21

    Its probably cuz Will.I.Am is trying to do a solo record. I don't know why. The BEP albums are pretty much a duet album of him and Fergie anyway.



  22. 22

    Thank you, Jesus!!



  23. 23

    Re: purplegloss – LMAO!!



  24. 24

    "Big Peas Don't Cry…." lmao



  25. 25

    they are kinda lame.



  26. 26

    Do not call them a funkadelic band, you asswipe.



  27. 27

    Hopefully all that plagiarism finally caught up to them…it gets really monotonous listening to them constantly take good songs and turn them into shit.



  28. 28

    thank FUCK! they suck.



  29. 29

    GOOD. GOOD. GOOD. Good!!! I can't wait to live through the day when I NEVER EVER EVER EVER hear one of their songs. They're absolutely the lowest, tackiest, taste in music I have ever been exposed to, and if you happen to enjoy it, that's a direct reflection on you.

    What's wrong with the world, mama
    People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
    I think the whole world addicted to the drama
    Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
    Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
    But we still got terrorists here livin'
    But if you only have love for your own race
    Then you only leave space to discriminate
    And to discriminate only generates hate
    And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
    Madness is what you demonstrate
    And that's exactly how anger works and operates
    Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
    Take control of your mind and meditate
    Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all
    Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
    Can you practice what you preach
    And would you turn the other cheek
    Father, Father, Father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
    Where is the love (Love)
    It just ain't the same, always unchanged
    New days are strange, is the world insane
    If love and peace is so strong
    Why are there pieces of love that don't belong



  31. 31

    Father, Father, Father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
    Where is the love (Love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love (The love)
    Where is the love, the love, the love?
    I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
    As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
    Most of us only care about money makin'
    Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction
    Wrong information always shown by the media
    Negative images is the main criteria
    Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
    Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
    Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
    Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
    Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity
    Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
    That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
    That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
    There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
    Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
    Now ask yourself
    Where is the love?

    Re: almostfamousz_x3 – I saw a picture of her on E! Online the other day, ahd she had on a pair of SUPER short-shorts, and I mean DAMN short. And it wasn't even for stage- they were denim, and she was just walking around town in them. She needs to get it in her mind that although she's hot, she needs to dress AGE APPROPRIATE. It doesn't mean that she needs to go all matronly, it just means that she needs a few tips on how get a good look going. But when it comes to those denim shorts she had on, even I'M too old to wear them, and i'm barely in my mid-twenties!

  35. 35
