The Black Eyed Peas are Just Taking a Break … not Breaking Up

If you’ve heard that line from a boyfriend or girlfriend in the past, you know how likely it is that the Black Eyed Peas will actually reunite. Still, they’re denying rumors that they’re officially breaking up and say instead that they’re just “taking a break” from making music together for a while.

“We’re going to take a little vacation and focus on our personal things,” said who will be focusing on his duties as ambassador for education in the Philippines. Yep, that’s right. The same guy that sings says things like “boom boom pow” and “lovely lady lumps” is an ambassador for education.

According to fellow band member,, this is the cycle under which the band operates normally: two cycles of records, and then a break to work on side projects and personal stuff.

The band will play their final concert before the break in Miami today, which will feature Marc Antony, Cee Lo Green, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Jason Derulo.

At least they’re going out in style. Which is more than I can say for me and my highschool boyfriend …
