Black Eyed Peas to Split?
Possibly the biggest news since realizing there are in fact four black eyed peas.. are the rumors that have been flying all over the internet for months about the group’s alleged break up.
The Black Eyed Peas have denied said rumors, but say they are taking a break from making music together for a while. ..But isn’t that how it starts?
“We are not breaking up,” band member Taboo told Reuters on Monday at a launch party for their video dance game, “The Black Eyed Peas Experience.”
“We’re going to take a little vacation and focus on our personal things,” added Apl.de.ap, real name Allan Lindo, Jr. who will be focusing on his duties as ambassador for education in the Philippines.
“When we take breaks you know, we work on side projects and get our personal stuff in order to then come back and make beautiful music,” added the rapper.
The band will play their final concert before the break in Miami on Wednesday and will feature Marc Antony, Cee Lo Green, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Jason Derulo.
The four band members have all ventured into solo projects in addition to their music, including fragrance and shoe collections, acting, and philanthropic causes, which they will be focusing on during their hiatus.
Their video dance game on the Xbox 360 Kinect and Wii consoles allows gamers to learn the Black Eyed Peas choreography while seeing their progress captured on screen.
“I want them to get the excitement of actually having the Black Eyed Peas in their own living room,” said Taboo.
The game is also a good workout regime. “We have childhood obesity, so it’s a good way for people to work out while having fun,” said singer Fergie
Do you think the peas will seperate for good? Or will they come around after they finish their “individual projects?”
And more importantly, have you seen Fergie lately? Maybe she should start taking her own advice..
