If you’re feeling even a little tenderhearted this morning, you might want to just skip this post altogether, for – can you handle this? – it contains word of the most phenomenal band this world has ever seen, the Black Eyed Peas, being ol’ dummies and putting their light under a bushel basket. That’s right, then masterful creators of such hits as “Boom Boom Pow” and “My Humps” are going to refuse the world the greatest gift of all: their music.
The news came at a recent concert in England when Fergie thought the time was appropriate to share this awful truth. She reportedly said “This isn’t going to be the last time you’ll see us,” but it seems like that’s so much not enough, doesn’t it?
Aww, you guys, you know I’m just joshin’ you! About being sad about this news, not about this news itself. The Black Eyed Peas really are going on hiatus, but instead of it being a tragedy, I think we should throw a little internet party to celebrate this well-needed reprieve from bad music. If some of you could get to posting some funny GIFs in the comments while I wrangle up some lucky chain letters, I’m sure we can get this place hopping by lunchtime.
