Fergie and Will.i.am Ready for Change

The Black Eyed Peas' are more than just a band, they've joined forces for the last 5 years to help give teens the artistic tools and opportunities to help them realize their fullest potential.

Last night Hollyscoop caught up with Fergie, Will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas at the 5th Annual Black Eyed Peas Peapod Foundation Benefit Concert in Hollywood to get the scoop on their foundation and what kind of change they're hoping America will get.

Speaking about the possibility of a mini Barack in the White House, Will.i.am said: "If they had a baby that would be awesome! I'd wish him the best.

"The birth that I would like to see is the birth of a new America coming out of this tough time that we're in four years from now, we have four years to make the best of his change and to keep the change towards the better."

In regards to the The Peapod Foundation, he said: "What I want to do is to continue to keep myself active and give back to poverty stricken areas and inner cities and providing kids tools to express themselves and advance in the arts.

"I'm from California where they have reduced school funding by two hundred million dollars so hooking up with companies like Adobe that give us a million dollars to continue to build programs not just in the Watts but in East LA, Harlem, Mississippi and Philippines that to me is… putting your best foot forward so that four years from now we will have birth brand new America. Obama in the white house is just the conception."

Will.i.am admits that although he hasn't spoken to the President since he made his song "New Day," he did see him "at the inauguration. I saw him at the Election Day in Chicago and I saw him at DNC in Colorado."
