Rapper will.i.am has assured fans that the Black Eyed Peas are not breaking up after Kanye West suggested the band was splitting up during a performance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival last Friday.
At the end of his song 'All of the Lights,' which features a host of stars including Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, he shouted out, “Rest in peace to the Black Eyed Peas. You’re gonna be missed.”
The Black Eyed Peas did announce that they were going to take a break once they wrap up their current world tour. The group broke the news from the stage during a gig in Staffordshire, England earlier this week. As the band came onstage, Fergie told the crowd it's the "last time we're going to be in England for a long time."
However, will.i.am went on Twitter to clear up the rumors, insisting West must have been misinformed: "maybe @kanyewest was stating the fact we will take a rest for a little bit… but we the @bep will never die…never…impossible.”
