What’s that? You keep condoms in your house because you’re smart? You think it’s good to be prepared? You actually listened in sex ed? Well, fuck all you heard, because Will.I.Am has spoken some gospel to Elle, and the verdict? Condoms are OUT!
ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?
W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just fuckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.
ELLE: Well, okay, I could see if she had a candy bowl full of them on the coffee table. But if she’s got a few in a drawer, wouldn’t that simply suggest she’s health-conscious?
W: 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.”
I was going to do that thing I do where I pretend that Will.I.Am is as wonderful as he thinks he is, but I just don’t have the heart today. Condoms are “tacky,” really? What an ignorant, careless thing to say. I don’t need to rant about STDs or unplanned pregnancies, you guys are smart enough to get that, but I just can’t believe that Will is douche enough to say these things in an interview.
