U.S. to Strengthen Diplomatic Ties With China via Will.I.Am


Hillary Clinton has selected will.i.am to head a State Department–backed concert in Beijing this year, with the explicit goal being to "encourage cultural and educational exchanges between the United States and China." There's no information on date or time yet, but the lineup will include both Chinese and American artists, along with will.i.am himself. If China's all like, "Goddman, will.i.am? Screw that, we're invading," don't say Vulture didn't warn you! [NYT]
