The Guardian's interview with will.i.am is ridiculous and phenomenal and you shouldn't even be reading this sentence right now because you should've already clicked that link. It's the sort of interview that had to be stopped and resumed because will.i.am started laughing his ass off until the phone cut out for 10 minutes. It's the sort of interview that demands its own extensive list of footnotes. It's the sort of interview that demands #hashtags, like #willpower. In fact:
#willpower to me isn't an album, it's a conversation around optimism. It's a conversation I have with people who respect my perspective. They respect my perspective. The play on that whole word there is "speck" … because I'm just a little thing in this big thing called the universe. And this whole thing is also a spectacle.
Every #aspeckt of this is #despeckable.
ON HIS DREAM LIFE:
One time I had a dream and in my dream I went to sleep and had a dream, woke up and told everyone my dream, then said, 'Wait a minute, I'm still asleep,' so I had to wake up again.
In related news, will.i.am doesn't use alarm clocks anymore. You know the dream.
ON BEING A FANTASTIC ATHLETE:
Willie Zoom. That's my nickname. I go "zooooom". That's the sound when I beat you [at running].
