Famous People Crushing

I am without a doubt in love with Ben Harper.  He's been my fav for at least 10 years now, if not more.  I'm actually going to see him Sunday.  I'm super excited. I haven't seen him in about 3 years, so I know he's excited, too.  It's going to be great.  Just me and him.  And The Relentless 7. And my brother and his girlfriend.  And thousands of other people.  But all of this is just the same old story for most of you. 

I could usually give two craps about famous people.  I've never hung a teen heartthrobs poster on my wall.  (Okay, maybe JTT, but that was just poor judgment)  And normally, I don't develop crushes on people I've never met (besides Ben Harper and John Stamos and I guess if we're going to go back 20 years, JTT) However, I was watching Oprah today (something I RARELY do) and this rapper/singer guy comes on stage and pays off two peoples mortgages in full.  They were weeks away from losing their house in foreclosure.  And he was super shy and said the reason why he wanted to make so much money was to help people out.  So, I am OFFICIALLY in love with will.i.am.  Yep, that will.i.am.  I'm not really sure what he does outside of helping people. Obviously, I know he sings and makes music, but I can't name any off the top of my  head.  Nonetheless, he's a pretty awesome guy in my book now.  He also started a foundation called "i.am home"    Go check out his video and website and if you have a few bones left over, go donate. 

*Warning*  Watching the video might result in a slight crush with will.i.am.
