black eyed peas will i am fergie hope gala this time foundation

Doing good in the world makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Then it gives us a charity boner! LOLz!

Well, the Black Eyed Peas have given us a raging one right about now! The funny thing is, though, they're not attending the Gala as the BEPs, but rather separately (but still in support of each other)!

iGivefirst is supporting the This Time Foundation and the Apl.de.ap (one of the founding members of BEP) Foundation International’s “Time For Hope” fundraiser gala, which plans on having 300+ attendees in addition to other members of the music group like Fergie and a special performance by will.i.am!

It's a great cause with a great list of celebs who want to help!

What more could you want? Go HERE for more info on how you can take part before the gala on May 18th!

Do you love recycling??

Not as much as will.i.am and The Coca-Cola Company do!

We mean, they showed up to the EKOCYCLE Partner Launch — where were you?? Ha!

The whole thing was green-focused… it featured a build out that included sustainable materials throughout the space to offer an inside visual look at the EKOCYCLE story and process, in addition to exclusive artwork created by famed artist Buff Monster (we didn't make that up).

EKOCYCLE is ready to handle more and more brands, which is fab because they already have a huge load

CONFIRMED: Madonna To Perform With LMFAO At Super Bowl

LMFAO Super Bowl

Because if there's anything football fans love, it's LMFAO.

Don't get us wrong: we love both Madonna and LMFAO and are super happy we'll get to see them during the Super Bowl, but we have to ask if other, more hardcore football fans will be saying the same thing!

We guess we'll just have to see, because Will.I.Am just confirmed it:

"Speaking to Capital FM about Madonna’s set, Will.i.am, who performed last year’s Half-Time Show with Black Eyed Peas, said he was going to attend the game to watch LMFAO."

Wonder what they'll collab on!

Whatever it is, it'll be extremely high-energy! Count on that!

Are U excited for this, or are U confused by the choices this year??
