Singer/actor Will.i.am rallied Obama Nation in 2008 with his original song "Yes We Can."
Turns out the performer actually meant to sing "You Better You Bet."
Will.i.am spoke about his support for Obama during a fundraising event this week as well as why he created his own foundation to support education.
The Black Eyed Peas leader said he was inspired by the 2010 documentary "Waiting for 'Superman,'" about U.S. public education. He said that "Superman is not coming to save no neighborhood or no education system."
Please take a moment to digest, or better yet, diagram that sentence. Let's move on.
Will.i.am also talked politics: He said President Barack Obama is not a "magic man," and that people shouldn't expect him to solve the country's problems with "some freakin' plan."
"We can sit and point fingers and say Obama's not doing his job, but you're supposed to do your job," said will.i.am , who has supported Obama in the past.
Now he tells us. We elected Obama so we can do our own jobs. Got it.
