The Black Eyed Peas may want to rethink that last trip to the Pottery Barn candle section. According to The Sun, Fergie, Will.I.Am, Taboo and Apl.De.Ap decided to light candles to set a cool vibe in their studio while recording for their new album Monkey Business in Burbank, California. Unfortunately for the hip-hop outfit they forget to blow them out as they went off to get something to eat and the place went up in flames. The loss is in musical equipment alone is estimated at upwards of $500,000. Will.I.Am said, “Guitars, drums, keyboards, microphones and classic instruments which we’ve carried on our worldly travels are now destroyed.”
Let's Get It Started has a whole new meaning for the band.
