Black Eyed Peas Don’t Perform ‘My Humps’ Anymore Because the Lyrics Are Stupid

Explains Will.I.Am: "It got to the point where we didn't want to play 'My Humps' no more. You know, 'cause 'I met a girl down at the disco,' I just didn't want to say that no more, lyrically. It wasn't like my best lyrically, but it was fun. It wasn't lyrical miracles, but the beat was rocking, so we throw the beat in there and just let the beat linger." The obvious thing to do here would be to point out that "lyrical miracles" are not something one, in general, associates with Will.I.Am's oeuvre, and the fact that he's singling out only one of his songwriting abominations is fairly comical. And you know what? It's five o'clock on a Friday. Let's stick with the obvious stuff. [MTV via Buzzfeed]
