After performing “All Of The Lights,” which features vocals by Fergie, a recent concert, Kanye West declared, “Rest in peace to the Black Eyed Peas. You’re gonna be missed!” Does this mean America should be on the lookout for another source of repetitive, soulless pop that people only dance to when they’re too drunk to care?

Will.i.am suggests that we’re only getting a brief reprieve, Tweeting, “maybe @kanyewest was stating the fact we will take a rest for a little bit…but we the @bep will never die…never…impossible” You can watch the moment in this video, which makes us wonder if they issue a seizure warning before Kanye’s concerts.
