Will.i.am Adds Hashtag To Album Name

I’m going to be perfectly honest here, and it might make me look pathetic, but here it goes: I heard that will.i.am announced that he was adding a hashtag to his forthcoming 2012 LP, but I heard the details wrong. What I had misheard/misread was that a hashtag was his album name. So, when I stepped out for lunch, I was mentally writing this long riff about how that’s literally the stupidest idea ever, because if you wanted something to trend, a single hashtag (#) with no tag attached would render trending completely obsolete. Like, literally anything is better than a single hashtag, as far as I know (Sidenote: Could you hashtag a hasthag, like ##? Does that work? Twitter tech team to thread). Maybe an “@” sign is worse, but this concept seems dumber, in principal. The bad news is, that he was just adding a hashtag to his album’s name, so now it’s #willpower. Still mad corny but a riff-killer. I mean his name is a hyperlink-killer already, cuz of all those periods. Basic point being, I wasted ten minutes earlier today thinking about will.i.am. Tom notes “Trick Daddy’s www.thug.com to thread.” will.i.am’s single, “THE,” (art above) which is yeah, you know, comes out next week.

  1. When you told me this story, I misheard it that will.i.am was adding a hash tag to HIS NAME. I guess once we saw the words will.i.am we stopped paying attention.

    I’ll show myself out…

  2. I’m a little disappointed that I spent a minute of my life thinking of something witty and biting to write here for a will.i.am story – not disappointed that I wasted my time, per se, but more disappointed that I literally couldn’t think of anything to write, because this story is SO stupid and will.i.am is SO terrible, that there is nothing I could write that could make this any more of a parody of itself than it already is. So in lieu of that, here’s a gif

  3. the only thing hard about will.i.am is his dick when those other 2 losers in the group suck him off for their weekly allowance and I am really sorry for writing this.

  4. T.H.E. is the new H.A.M.

    don’t get me wrong, hard as a motherfucker is pretty hard – but its not the hardest ever. will.i.am is a genius.

    • Honestly, I literally thought will.i.am added a hashtag to his name, which seemed funny enough for a post. TGIF. (It’s Friday, right?)

  8. I just saw the picture and thought there was a remake of The Fifth Element in the works with Wesley Snipes in the Gary Oldman role. Reading the story made me wish I’d been right the first time.
