what the fuck happened to the black eyed peas?

they used to be so fun. so good. they had great delivery, great chemistry...

then, BAM!

look! taboo has his hand over his mouth... "*gasp* what the fuck happened?" and will.i.am is saying, "d'oh! what have we done! fans, please! we didn't mean to let you down!" just look at the pic. the person with the least talent is in the forefront....

you see what happened? enter stacy. or fergie... because i guess fergie sounds more ethnic. come on! she's white! leave her be in all her whiteness! i shall refer to her as stacy from here on out.
at any rate, i understand the need for the record company execs to put stacy in the group. i mean, she's an attractive girl and they needed her to balance out the collective ugliness of the boys in the group. i mean, let's face it. they may be talented, but hot? yeah. not so much.

and i understand that they've had their biggest hits (read: pop radio-friendly) since stacy joined... but... i wonder if they feel cheap, despite their designer clothing... i wonder if every once in a while, a twinge of guilt hits them because they let down their real fans... but, probably not. i guess fame and money really do bring happiness.

here they are... when they were good and before they sold out.

if you don't have this album, it's their best one. don't get that crap they started churning out after stacy joined them.

WTF happened to the Smiths? I see you are a fan but is Marr the reason Morrissey is so confused sexually?

i don't know if he's sexually confused. sounds to me, he just doesn't want to talk about it. nor should he have to.

i don't think being sexually confused has anything to do with writing great music... i could be wrong, though.

Isn't it a shame that we can't just enjoy the music. They probably felt that in order to sell their music they needed a gimmick. Enter Stacy. We live in such a materialistic society...
