Black Eyed Peas

Black Eyed Peas leader will.i.am may have sold millions of records throughout his lengthy career, but music wasn’t always the end goal. Appearing with Fergie, Taboo, and apl.de.ap at a press conference in Dallas, Texas, for their halftime performance during this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV, the group’s frontman revealed he once had hopes of playing for the NFL.

“I wanted to play football until I got a concussion,” said will, rocking circular shads, a tan jacket with a black cuff around his upper arm, and black pants.

Apl.de.ap showed off his football spirit with the words “BEP” and “XLV” carefully shaved into the back of his head. The quartet, who will rock with Usher and Slash during the halftime show, declared that they were proud to be the “first multicultural hip-hop band” to grace the stage and that they would tone down the sex factor to avoid controversy.

“You want to give a little sex appeal, but you don’t want to get in trouble,” explained Fergie at the media event.
