Will.i.am: I feel like I’m married to Jessie J

Will.i.am feels like he is Jessie J’s husband as they spend so much time together on The Voice in Britain.

The Black Eyed Peas front man appears as a mentor on Britain’s The Voice with the singer.

He often thinks of her as his spouse because they spend so much time together and would only consider returning to the show if she does too.

“I’ve been asked to do series three,” he told British newspaper the Daily Mirror. “But it would depend on who else was there, and it would be a hard decision.

“I feel like I’m married to Jessie so it would be weird if she wasn’t there. It’s like cheating.”

The music producer believes Jessie knows just how to make him feel good when he is down.

Although he loves fellow judges Tom Jones and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue, Jessie’s silly personality is compatible with his.

“I know that when I’m having a bad day I can look to my left and she will be pulling some weird face that will cheer me up,” he continued. “Tom will be chilled and Danny is an inspiration – he can make a song out of anything.”

Although Will is keeping busy with his solo career, he insists his band is still together.

He stays in contact with pregnant Fergie, whose real name is Stacy Ferguson, as well as apl.de.ap and Taboo.

“I go on tour in July then I’m going to school to learn about coding and then next thing it’s October and boom, we’re back,” he said about juggling various projects with reality TV.

“And yeah the Black Eyed Peas are still together – in fact, I talked to Fergie just the other day. But I’ll be here for a while. My label is based in the UK because I like this place. It’s fresh!”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
