After tonight’s performance in Miami, Florida, Black Eyed Peas will begin its indefinite hiatus from recording and releasing new music.
According to frontman will.i.am, the hiatus is more of a “break” and that they will spend their time off focusing on other ventures. “We always have two cycles of records and then we take a break,” said will, who is gearing up for the release of a solo album. “And then two cycles of records and then a break. When we take breaks you know, we work on side projects and get our personal stuff in order then come back and make beautiful music. We think beautiful music.”
Taboo plans to spend time with his family, while apl.de.ap will focus on being an ambassador for education in the Philippines. Fergie is looking to start a family.
“[Y]eah, that’s one of the things that we want to do,” she said. “I’ve just been touring since 2003 and like anything things get monotonous and your doing the same thing every night. I’d like to go days without wearing make-up and watching my football games. Doing my footwear collection and my fragrances…Just going where the day takes me.”
Tonight’s show is set to feature cameos from Cee Lo Green, Flo Rida, Marc Anthony, Sean Kingston and Jason Derulo.
