A Day in the Life: Will.i.am
Wednesday, 10pm, Studio They say Will.i.am is the creative force behind the Black Eyed Peas. This documentary, part of a series by Morgan Spurlock ( Super Size Me), follows the superstar around during the course of a single day in his life. Anyone who saw Will on The Graham Norton Show, coping extremely well with a lecture from Miriam Margolyes on not using the dreaded Valley girl construction ‘‘ like’’ in his every utterance, will already know he is witty, charming, moderately self-effacing (for a hip-hop superstar) and sharp as a tack. This makes him great company as we wheel around Paris in this documentary with his drivers, protectors and a camera crew. Things begin with a bout of autographs and selfies for fans in the morning outside his hotel before he tells the in-limo camera about the early days of the Black Eyed Peas. He explains as we drift along how, in 1999, the Peas played sold-out venues in Paris that held 200 people. These days, he says, the band plays three nights in stadiums that hold 80,000. Then it’s off to a fashion fitting for his own clothing line and sundry other superstar activities I won’t spoil by naming here.
