WILL.I.AM hopes there is still time for him to settle down, get married and be an ‘awesome husband and dad’.
The Voice Kids coach spilled his hopes and dreams in an exclusive chat with Guilty Pleasures — and said he’ll expect his kids to adopt his vegan lifestyle.
‘I might get married,’ said the 44-year-old singleton. ‘I am going to be an awesome husband. A vegan husband… or even a vegan dad. Ha!’
And the Black Eyed Peas singer said his plant-based diet has helped him bond with fellow ITV talent show judge Jessie J.
‘I’ve always had a bond with Jessie and she’s really come into her own now,’ said the Scream & Shout chart-topper, who wants to collab with the Bang Bang singer.
Defending her bumpy ride in fame, he said: ‘The critics were tough on her [Jessie] for no reason at all. She is a sweetheart and not a diva.
‘Her voice is amazing. But to get to that level of talent, she was run through the wringer herself, so she knows only one method to get people to that excellence. It’s tough love.’
After working with Snoop Dogg on new Black Eyed Peas single Be Nice, Will says a track with Jessie — who dates Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum — could be next up.
‘We are talking about working together and getting into the studio as soon as we can,’ said Will, who celebrated World Meat Free Week this month.
‘She loves my latest track, Be Nice, and that it’s about love and happiness.
‘The other day, she even sent me a video message of herself singing it.
‘The fact that Jessie is also a vegan bonds us.
‘She brought a vegan cake on set for my birthday, although it wasn’t sugar-free!’
The US rapper, songwriter, DJ and producer ended by swearing about the benefits of his diet regime.
‘I have been meat-free for two years now and definitely have more energy,’ he said.
‘I’ve lost 20lb and now I’m going on a sugar-free diet.’
