In the latest episode of The New York Times’ ‘Almost Famous’ series, Black Eyed Peas original singer Kim Hill talked about her time with the supergroup, and she has detailed why she quit the group before their huge fame.
Most people know Fergie as the first singer of Black Eyed Peas, but Kim was featured one of their first hits, ‘Joints and Jams.’ You can watch the song right below.
Here’s what Kim Hill stated:
“It just started to get clumsy and messy. You want me to grind on will.i.am in a bathing suit? That was being asked of me. Never by the guys. That was happening from an executive level. How far out on this plank do you want me to go?
The tug of war was about my sexuality and how much of that I was willing to literally strip down. I never wanted to be objectified while doing my music.”
“No one handed them anything. They worked their asses off. They deserve it.”
