Crushable Quotable: Will.I.Am Thinks That Being Prepared for Safe Sex Is Tacky
Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am is a positive goldmine of quotes lately. Last week he said that he (along with the rest of the world) doesn't like their song “My Humps.” Now, he tells Elle magazine that it's “tacky” when a woman has condoms in her apartment. Wow, he sounds like awesome boyfriend material.
Will.i.am Quote: To me, sex isn’t like an extracurricular activity that you do because you’re [feeling amorous]. Because I was raised around girls, I think I’ve adopted that perspective on sex. When you’re with somebody and you love them, then you’re going to do it and you’re going to do it a lot. On tour, the band started calling me G. S., for the Good Samaritan.
Interpretation: On one hand, it's great that he is saying positive stuff about sexuality and how it shouldn't be taken lightly. That said, whenever a guy has to announce what a good person he is, that's normally a giant red flag that he's a douche. It's about actions, not words. Especially when your words are the lyrics to “My Humps.”
Will.i.am Quote: [In response to the question “If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?”] If she had condoms in her house, that would just fuckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.
Interpretation: It sounds like we a have a potential virgin/whore complex here. He wants you to have sex with him – but to act like this is the first time you've done it. What's wrong with a woman planning ahead instead of just assuming a guy will take care of everything, especially if this is the first time you're hooking up?
Will.i.am Quote: Another pet peeve is wet sinks.
Interpretation: Well, everyone has their pet peeves, but this one just seems weird. Sometimes sinks get wet. They have faucets in the middle of them! Not everyone has a maid on call, dude.
Will.i.am Quote: And if she’s got only dry toilet paper and no baby wipes next to the toilet. You ain’t got no baby wipes? … Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks. That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes.
Interpretation: As DListed pointed out, it's hard to think about baby wipes without thinking of Terrence Howard‘s infamous interview, which coincidentally was also in Elle.
