“It’s harder than you think to write the sort of song that keeps your attention and entices you to sing it verbatim later. It’s easy, if you’re a poet, to write complex verses like, ‘I’m coming after you like VWXYZ.’ Just think about that. It’s like, ‘You, V does come after U! That’s fucking crazy!’ My mind thinks like that all the time, coming up with crazy clever metaphors and rhymery things.”

We knew well will.i.am had a punny name, but this takes the Black Eyed Peas rhymer to a new level: “It’s like, if you and Tom Landry were doing the laundry, because, like, if you put a U in ‘landry’, in the right place, it spells ‘laundry.'”
Dude needs his own episode of Sesame Street.
