The following conversation took place few weeks ago between my agent and I.
*ring ring* *ring ring*
Agent: Eh, Kenny ah. You free on the 25th September or not ah?
Kenny: 25th September ah? Can lah. What's going on?
Agent: Something big, Kenny. It's so freaking huge it's not even funny. 25th September is Guinness's 250th Anniversary and they are having a worldwide celebration on that day. Out of five cities in the world, only KL was selected as the sole Asian destination to host the Arthur's Day. We want you to come to KL.
Kenny: Oh. Ok. What do I have to do?
Agent: Guinness is bringing The Black Eyed Peas to perform at Sunway Lagoon on that day. We want you to interview them. You interested or not?
Kenny: Oh. Can loh.
Agent: Ok sweet then I talk to you later kthxbai.
And so, I went home from a busy day at work just like any other day, curled up in my bed and prepared for a night's sleep.
As I was lying on my bed, a small teeny weeny little voice crept into my head and went, "omg omg omg..."
"OMG OMG OMG OMFG OMFG."
"Do you even understand the magnitude of what you've just been told?"
"The Black Eyed Peas!"
"THE BLACK EYED PEAS!!!"
"THE BLACK EYED PEAS!!!"
"YOU ARE GOING TO BE INTERVIEWING THE BLACK EYED PEAS!!!!!"
Drenched in dripping cold sweat, I sprung out of my bed immediately and screamed, "AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!"
Is this really happening?! Am I really gonna be interviewing the Black Eyed Peas?! Seriously, if this one goes through, it is going to be one golden opportunity of a lifetime!
I couldn't sleep that night. I was as excited as a teenager discovering porn on the Internet. All I did was staying up the whole entire night thinking how to act when I meet Fergie and the rest of the band. For sure I am gonna be nervous like hell. I think I might even cry. And Big Girls Don't Cry.
How am I even gonna start the interview? I don't even know what questions to ask!
"Hello Fergie can I have your number wtf?"
I don't know. I really really don't know. Which is why I wanna put this out to all kennysia.com readers.
Help me interview The Black Eyed Peas!
Please, please, please. If you can help me come up with some fun, creative and interesting interview questions to ask The Black Eyed Peas, leave me a comment in the box below. Surely, there must be stuff you're always curious about the BEP?
When the band arrives here for Arthur's Day, I will talk to them face-to-face. And I will ask those questions on your behalf. So you win, I win!
As a token of my appreciation, 5 of you who asked the best interview questions will be rewarded with two tickets to attend Arthur's Day and watch The Black Eyed Peas perform live in concert.
So here's your chance to ask will.i.am, Fergie, Taboo and Apl.d everything that you ever wanted to know about them, The Black Eyed Peas or their music in general. Ask them anything you want.
Like, how did they come up with the name Black Eyed Peas?
What is the meaning of the lyrics to the song My Humps? (When they order char kueh teow, they don't put clams)
So many questions, so little time.
Let's all do this on Arthur's Day
