Will.i.am Suffers From Tinnitus
Loud Music eases the pain… Just ask Will.i.am
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Black Eyed Peas[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Will.i.am[/lastfm] has revealed that he suffers from tinnitus, a condition in which there is a constant ringing in his ears. While speaking with Britain’s the Sun, the hip-hop star says that the only time it doesn’t bother him is when there’s loud music.
“I don’t know what silence sounds like any more. Music is the only thing which eases my pain,” he admits.
Will continues on to explain how the condition has affected his whole life.
“I can’t be still,” he admits. “Work calms me down. I can’t be quiet as that’s when I notice the ringing in my ears. There’s always a beep there every day, all day. Like now. I don’t know exactly how long I’ve had this but it’s gradually got worse.”
The Black Eyed Peas’ new album The Beginning hit stores in the U.S. on November 26. They are currently touring the U.K. with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cheryl Cole[/lastfm].
