I’m so 3008, You so 2000 and Late… Hanging with the Black Eyed Peas

Will.i.am. Fergie. Two guys whose name you probably don’t know. Collectively, known as the Black Eyed Peas. For laziness-sake, I’ll refer to them in this post as “BEP.”

As I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter, I covered KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango concert on Saturday the 9th on behalf of TV Guide Network…

However, I will not go into the fun (and the fiasco) that was Wango Tango. I’ll save that for a later (as in likely tomorrow) post.

I’d rather stay positive, people. Wait… let me try that again. LET’S STAY POSITIVE PEOPLE!! LET’S GO! LOCK IN!! (Thanks for the inspiration, Diddy.)

OK in all seriousness though, BEP was pretty…pretty dope, right? I start off the interview talking to the camera, and little do I know Will.i.am is creeping up over my left shoulder. I turn to the group, and before I can do anything, let out a little jump and “ahhhh” when I discover Will.i.am’s presence. Awkward? Kinda. But it kept the convo real. We jump straight into interview-mode, Will.i.am keeps using “right” over and over (as you’ll see in the clip below,) and compares themselves to Wolfgang Puck?! Uhh… yeah. Brilliant analogy. Really.

But overall observations?

Will.i.am? Funny. Still passionate about Obama. Enjoys “beaming in” to network news channels.

Fergie? Way cooler than I expected. She’s like…down. Ya know what I mean? Jokes around, has fun, and… I gotta give it to her, she has sick abs.

The other two guys? (Apl.de.ap and Taboo?) Well… they didn’t really talk much so I couldn’t really get a fair observation (then again… I didn’t really talk to them… so… yeah… that’s probably why they were quiet? My bad! I’m the jerk, I guess.)

Check out the interview below. Disclaimer: “Boom Boom Pow” is totally one of those songs that gets stuck in your head. (Fast forward the first 9 seconds of black…)
