Just Will.i.am: Imagining the singer's life on Twitter

The hip-hop star used to be a breath of fresh air: now, the chronic tweeter is inescapable, and faintly tedious. Worse, he's given wor Cheryl a bloody nose and even appeared in 'The Financial Times'!

@will.i.am

So me + @RealSirTomJones + @JessieJ + @TheIrish One are like the stars on #TheVoice + like this cool guy won. Or girl. Whatevs.

@will.i.am

So I went to #Taunton, Massachusetts + was given this #Grammy. I was like #OMG. I think people in #Torton liked me. They shouted #DOPE at me

@will.i.am

Look up at the stars. Wow. My song was the first beamed on to #Mars. Kinda cool. So it's the best ever in space. And I guess the worst.

@will.i.am

I was like let's get the Cadillac started + Cheryl was like OK + I was like let's tweet that + she was like lookout… #fenderbender

@will.i.am

This lady @JubyLee won a chance to meet me. I said Fergie would be at the after-party in #sizzlin hot pants. She didn't seem to like that

@will.i.am

Me and the #King smashed it. He loves science man. His kid has got the same name as me. Will.One.Is.

@will.i.am

I have arrived. Six pages in the Financial Times. Does that mean they're cool or I'm really not? I tell them I'm a popthropoligist. Dope

@will.i.am

So everyone like loves the #BlackEyedPeas. Where is the Love? Hey Mama. Humps. Shut Up. No we won't!

@will.i.am

Dirty like Dancing? Nobody puts baby in the corner. And nobody takes a perfectly good theme song and ruins it with rap like #BlackEyedPeas

@will.i.am

So this was so freakin' weird. I got to meet the #Queen (I think). She is one crazy lady. I was the first rapper she'd kicked it with.
