Oh praise (insert your omnipotent deity of choice here), the long national nightmare is over: Black Eyed Peas have decided to stop annoying the world with their puddle-deep noise pollution! WOO! Okay, so it’s just a hiatus, but any vacation away from whatever the hell The Beginning was is absolutely fucking welcome.
The band is on the road in Europe with its The Beginning shows, but will.i.am has now confirmed they will step away from the music industry once they play their final show in Madrid, Spain on 14 July (11). However, the rapper is adamant the hiatus will not spell the end of the group. In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, “The Bep (Black Eyed Peas) will take a break after The Beginning… just like we did from Monkey Business to The E.N.D (albums)… but it doesn’t mean we stop creating.” SOURCE
Wait, what? You’re gonna keep “creating”? Oh Jesus, no! NO! You’re not allowed to do that! You can’t just say you’ll stop torturing us with terrible, shallow, auto-tuned music and then go “AH! Just kidding! We’ll keep making music anyway!” like Lucy from Peanuts yanking the football away from Charlie Brown! Mostly because I always kind of assumed out-of-panel, Charlie Brown was slashing her tires for that.
