Good news, everyone! Will.I.Am‘s hearing has apparently been restored, and he now realizes how much his song, My Humps, totally blows ass and has agreed to never play it again. Actually, the real reason is that he doesn’t feel the song is “lyrically” up to his standards, which sounds like a legitimate answer until you realize he really only hates one line of the song and not, you know, the entire goddamn thing.
He tells MTV.com, “Before … it was like, ‘We know we gotta play (hit songs) Pump It and Let’s Get It Started. We used to do Let’s Get It Started at the end, because that was our big finale, which didn’t really make sense. And for a while, (we did) My Humps and then it got to the point where we didn’t want to play My Humps no more. You know, ’cause ‘I met a girl down at the disco’ – I just didn’t want to say that no more, lyrically. It wasn’t like my best lyrically. But it was fun. It wasn’t lyrical miracles, but the beat was rocking, so we throw the beat in there and just let the beat linger.” SOURCE
… What in the fuck does that last sentence even mean? That wasn’t a phrase, that was the English language giving up on life. But I digress, back on point here: This song is awful and it’s a damn good thing someone finally put the thing out of its misery. Just to put how terrible this song is into perspective, they once played My Humps to a room full of deaf people. The last words they ever signed were “You will burn forever for this, Black Eyed Peas.”
