How Much to Never See the Black Eyed Peas Again?

How about this?  We’ll give you $50 and Taboo vanishes forever?  $30 and will.i.am only appears on one episode of the next American Idol?  Okay, $25 and ap.le.de.ap disappears for a good six months.  Final offer.

Did ‘SNL’ Rip-Off Jumped the Snark?

Wellllll, no, not really.  But it’s really curious that no less than a month ago we posted a video of Taboo, the fifth member of the Black Eyed Peas, visiting the 4th hour of Today and then this past weekend SNL presented a sketch called “Our Time With Taboo and apl.de.ap.”  Sure, we hadn’t written any sketch featuring the weird, pale, vaguely Asian, definitely creepy Taboo.  And we’ve completely ignored apl.de.ap (wouldn’t even have been able to name him.  He’s just be “the one that’s not will.i.am”).  But the fact of that matter is that a few weeks ago we were pointing out this somewhat obscure, bizarre pop culture figure, bringing him to the masses, and now he’s the subject of a sketch on Saturday Night LiveFirst Mark McGrath and Don’t Forget the Lyrics and now this.  Where’s the justice?  Where’s the honor?  So this question is this: Saturday Night Live, have you been reading our diary?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Yesterday in Today: Terrifying Taboo

It wasn’t enough for The Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo to terrify us during the Super Bowl half-time show (which was on the whole a terrifying experience), but he had to then go ahead and come on Today and terrify us even more.  Another request we never wanted to hear from Kathie Lee or Hoda: “Show us some moves!’

We’d like to make a joke here that Kathie Lee was wasted, but we know that was actually the case because it was after 10am on a Tuesday.

Fun Taboo Fact: Not only is he part Shoshone, but he also has albinism (or so Wikipedia said three days ago, with that reference now removed).
