The NFL has scored a touchdown with their selection for this year's Super Bowl halftime entertainment: the Black Eyed Peas!
"They could have picked anybody," band member will.i.am tells Rolling Stone of the NFL's decision. "But it says something that they picked us."
The Black Eyed Peas are releasing a new album, "The Beginning," on Tuesday, November 30. Fans who buy the CD could have a chance to see the group's February 6 live performance at the Super Bowl XLV halftime show at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Super Bowl gig is considered a coup for entertainers because it reaches an enormous audience. Last year, more than 153 million people tuned in to see The Who's halftime show.

Nabbing criminals? There’s an app for that!
TMZ reports that Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am turned to his iPad to take down a crook who broke into his Bentley last week and swiped over $10,000 worth of his personal property. Among the stolen goods: the rapper’s bling and his brand-new iPad.
But the creep should have thought twice about taking the 35-year-old star’s Apple accessory. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that quick-thinking Will.i.am used the iPad's built-in tracking system to locate the thief and forwarded his whereabouts to authorities.
Though the bad guy remains on the loose, most of Will.i.am’s belongings were returned to him.

The title of the Black Eyed Peas' album "The E.N.D." just might apply to Fergie's career with the supergroup, if you believe rumors that surfaced over the weekend.
According to RadarOnline.com, female lead Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson has been repeatedly clashing with band member Will.I.Am over his inflated ego and will leave the group when it finishes its summer tour.
"She's got everything planned out and she says she can't be convinced to change her mind," a source reportedly told RadarOnline.com, adding that the singer also hopes to start a family with hubby Josh Duhamel.
But Will.I.Am insists that he and Fergie, both 35, are closer than peas in a pod. On Saturday he tweeted, "Don't belive [sic] gossip about fergie leaving the group (we are never breaking up) its all lies!!!"

Fergie said she knows it’s impossible to look perfect all the time, but there’s no harm in trying.
The Black Eyes Peas singer and ELLE’s May cover girl told the magazine she pretends that french fries are poison.
“I’m not going to lie: There are times I play mind tricks on myself,” she said.
“With desserts, I’ll let myself have just one bite, but I’ll look like a freak when I’m eating it, like when I did Duncan Hines commercials as a kid, just savoring every morsel.”
Fergie, a self proclaimed romantic, also opened up about her relationship with hubby Josh Duhamel, and how she continues to fall “deeper” in love with him.
“You come to know each other a lot better, you grow together, and it makes you love each other that much deeper,” she said.

Prior to tabloid reports that her husband Josh Duhamel had an affair with an Atlanta stripper, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie told the Advocate magazine that she has some strict rules about cheating in her marriage.
That interview now appears in the December-January issue of the Advocate. Fergie told the magazine that her rules for cheating also apply for same-sex relationships.
“I've had a lot of fun with women, and I'm not ashamed of it," she told the magazine. "But just because I enjoy women doesn't mean I'm allowed to have affairs in my relationship."
Fergie said she came to this conclusion with the help of a therapist and that she has shared her history of same sex relationships with her husband Josh. “"I learned through talking with my therapist that it is still cheating even if it's with girls, so there is a rule there."
The interview has been released amid rumors that Duhamel had an affair with an Atlanta stripper named Nicole Forrester. Fergie has released a statement calling the stripper’s allegations “nonsense."
Fergie, whose real name is Stacy Ferguson, is appearing in the soon to be released movie musical “Nine” as Saraghina, an Italian prostitute who seduces a young filmmaker. She also told the magazine that she could relate to her character flirting with and seducing a younger man.
“There will be teenage boys at my shows, so sometimes I’m seducing them from the stage. It’s not like anything’s going to happen - it’s very playful and flirtatious - but it’s funny because I’m 34 and they’re 14. So I get that about Saraghina.”
