The Black Eyed Peas cover the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine. In the issue, the group’s front-man Will.i.am claims that he helped end a 25-year-old feud between Michael Jackson and Prince. The 35-year-old singer worked with the King of Pop before he died last year and talks about reuniting Prince and MJ at a Prince concert a couple of years back:
Two years ago, Prince invited Will.i.am to sit in with him at a show in Las Vegas. Will asked if he could invite a singer-songwriter he was working with – Michael Jackson, who Will says had a beef with Prince running back to a 1983 misunderstanding at a James Brown concert. Jackson showed. “I told Quincy, and he was like, ‘I can’t believe you got Mike to go there,'” says Will.i.am. “Prince and Michael Jackson? Come on dude. That’s connecting worlds.”
