Being the leader of Black Eyed Peas, it's not surprising Will.I.Am got access at 2am to record his newest track "Smile Mona Lisa" at the Louvre Museum in Paris in front of Leonardo da Vinci's famous portrait. However it might be a little alarming that he was just simply recording, not shooting a visual for a music video. When interviewed, Will.I.Am stated he wanted to capture the ambience of the Louvre, that Mona Lisa lives in. I think this type of behavior from an passionate music artist is great, he always finds a way to stay creative instead of following the norm. This track will be featured on his next solo project so we can all look forward to hearing this record!
The other night on FOX's hilarious Cleveland Show, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, ?uestlove, and Will.i.am all appeared as guest stars on "Menace II Secret Society" - a controversial episode that is playing up the much-talked about Illuminati. The music stars are a part of the secret society (Kanye as 'Kenny West', his previous character) and Cleveland joins and helps.
I'm intrigued to sit down and watch the episode above. For those who did, what did you think of the hip hop illuminati episode?
The first photo of Bruno Mars, Questlove, Will.i.am, & Nicki Minaj on the upcoming Cleveland Show can be seen above. Hah, it's always funny to see these big names as cartoon characters.
The premise is that Cleveland discovers a secret hip-hop society fronted by Kanye West. Bruno Mars, Questlove, will.i.am, and Nicki Minaj are seen wearing cloaks as part of the secret group that controls pop culture.
Hmm, what do you think of this concept? The episode airs on October 21st.
