Will.I.Am Obliterates Kanye West For His 'Ignorant' Slavery Statements: 'That Broke My Heart'

no title

Kanye West's "new ideas" about slavery sounding "like a choice" have shocked and repulsed practically anyone who's ever studied the topic — particularly descendants of the slaves he spoke about.

Will.i.am joined the choir of critics chastising Yeezy's "free thoughts," saying the comment was "one of the most ignorant statements that anybody who came from the hood could ever say about their ancestors."

The former Black Eyed Peas frontman addressed the controversy on ITV's Good Morning Britain Wednesday, said the poorly-thought out statement "broke [his] heart" because:

"I thought about my grandma, who was born in 1920, and her connection with her mom who raised her, who was born in the late 1800s. And my grandmother's grandma, who was a slave. And when you're a slave, you're owned. You don't choose if you're owned. When you're a slave you're deprived of education. That's not choice, that's by force."

The I Gotta Feeling singer added that Kanye's attempt to promote "free thought" ended up hurting those he was trying to "free" from the shackles of mental imprisonment, because the rapper's "free" thoughts were spewed out without the proper research:

Wait, So It Turns Out Fergie Is STILL A Member Of The Black Eyed Peas!

She is WAY too Fergalicious to leave!

As you know, we previously reported that will.i.am gave an interview to Ahlan! where he said Fergie is "working on her solo project at the moment." Many believed he was confirming rumors that she was no longer a member of the Black Eyed Peas.

However, just because Josh Duhamel's wife is focusing on her sophomore album Double Dutchess, apparently that doesn't mean she's leaving BEP.

will.i.am Confirms Fergie Has Left The Black Eyed Peas — So What About Those Nicole Scherzinger Rumors??

Black Eyed Peas

It's official — Fergie has left the Black Eyed Peas!

In a new interview with Ahlan!, will.i.am confirmed the rumors by saying:

"Since the beginning of 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 on songs like Lets Get it Started, it's Noelle (Scaggs), and then Fergie, songs like Latin Girls, it's Debi Nova, and Request Line, it's Macy Gray. We'll always work with good females."

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Coming To TV!

What do you get when you combine The Voice with Shark Tank??

Apple Music's new show Planet Of The Apps, that's what!

Earlier this week, Apple dropped the trailer for their new reality show slated to debut this Spring. The concept? Well, app developers are given 60 seconds on a escalator to pitch to the show's judges (coaches?) — including Jessica Alba of The Honest Company, Gwyneth Paltrow of Goop, will.i.am of i.am+, and Gary Vaynerchuk of VaynerMedia. Now, like on The Voice, if two coaches select a developer the techie is then allowed to pick which influencer they'd like to work with.

Eventually, the selected coach and app developer meet in front of a venture capital firm, named Lightspeed Venture, and try to score an investment deal. LOVES it!

We're honestly just floored that Miz Paltrow has decided to do TV after her lengthy film career. But, regardless, we're so about it!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the inneresting trailer for yourself (above)!

Is Nicole Scherzinger Replacing Fergie In Black Eyed Peas??

no title

We have to say… this is an EXTREMELY interesting idea!

According to a Brazilian website, a "reliable" source claims Nicole Scherzinger is replacing Fergie in Black Eyed Peas! Where's the evidence??

The blog says Josh Duhamel's wife is too busy with her album Double Dutchess to focus on anything with her old band. Although the LP was expected to drop in January, it now seems unlikely.

While the former Pussycat Dolls front woman has released singles, many of her albums have been scrapped, and she hasn't seen much success on her own.

Last year, will.i.am told Roman Kemp on Capital's Evening Show that the band will indeed get back together. He said:

"There will be a Black Eyed Peas reunion… It just, it breaks my heart that I even have to say that because really we should just… we should just always have been doing Black Eyed Peas actually."

Where is the love, y'all??
