We’re not the world’s biggest Black Eyed Peas fan to begin with, but after reading this interview with Will.i.am in Elle magazine, we’re even less psyched about them now. When asked the question “If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?” the Pea responded “If she had condoms in her house, that would just f—n’ throw me off. That’s just tacky. …I just think, like, if you’re into someone and you guys get to that level, then that’s something you should converse about together and say, ‘Hey, maybe we should get some.'”
Are we crazy for thinking that that’s kind of delusional and antiquated? Isn’t “Be Prepared” a motto that works well beyond the Boy Scouts of America? We don’t know why we’re so worked up about something that a man who wrote a song called “Let’s Get Retarded” said, but this bugs us that as a hugely popular artist that people look up to, he’d say something that could be misconstrued and also makes him sound like a doofus. Later in the interview, Will.i.am also explains his love for Billy Joel and wiping his ass with baby wipes, so he apparently doesn’t care about sounding like a doofus about a wide range of topics.
