Will.i.am Slammed for Blackface VMA Performance
When Black Eyed Peas bandleader Will.i.am joined Nicki Minaj during the VMA pre-show Sunday, outraged fans slammed the 35-year-old rapper for appearing in blackface.
“Will.i.am. wearing blackface!? What a racist!” fakeart123 tweeted.
Adds TSCMoncton, “Anyone notice that Will.i.am painted himself in blackface? I sure hope there’s some kind of meaning behind a stunt like that.”
Blackface — which first gained popularity during the 19th century — typically promotes racist stereotypes toward African Americans.
In addition to his face paint, Will.i.am wore head-to-toe black (including a shiny hair piece in the shape of a side-mohawk).
“Will.i.am just sent us back 1,000 yrs… Really sir, #Blackface in front the grey ppl!” IAm_Danie wrote of his appearance.
Snipes FrankieVtotheD, “And what the hell is going on with Will.i.am? Did he take a dip in the Gulf before the show? I didn’t know blackface was back in style.”

The sex tape is rumored to be full of Nicki “doing all kinds of freaky stuff”. This rumor is gathering even more steam than the one about her wearing butt pads, which she totally denies.
You’ll be able to check her butt pads out on the upcoming BET Awards, since she’s nominated four times. However, she’s up against Justin Bieber for Best New Artist. Better luck next time, Nicki. Beating the Biebs may be tough.
Minaj announced in early April that she won’t be on the road with Rihanna’s “Last Girl On Earth Tour,” and said she’ll use the time to finish her upcoming debut full-length album.
She tweeted, “Barbz I’m sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi’s tour. I’ve decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand,” She later Tweeted, “Barbz, Thx 4 understanding. And Thanks to Rihanna 4 being a sweetheart and extending this great opportunity 2 me. Support the show! Luv, HB.”
