Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am told his 1.5 million Twitter followers back in June that his group would be taking a breather some time soon. Now, immediately following a show tonight in Miami, the group will officially take a bow. But only for a little while.

“We always have two cycles of records and then we take a break. And then two cycles of records and then a break,” Will.i.am said on The Ellen Degeneres Show. “When we take breaks you know, we work on side projects and get our personal stuff in order then come back and make beautiful music.” His fourth solo album, #willpower, will be released next year.

Fergie said she’s on “baby bump watch.” “That’s one of the things that we want to do,” she said, referring to starting a family with her husband, actor Josh Duhamel. “I’ve just been touring since 2003 and like anything, things get monotonous and you’re doing the same thing every night. I’d like to go days without wearing makeup and watching my football games. Doing my footwear collection and my fragrances.... Just going where the day takes me.”

“We’re going to take a little vacation and focus on our personal things,” Apl.de.ap, who plans to dedicate more time as an education ambassador in the Philippines, added in a Reuters interview. Taboo wants to spend some downtime with his growing family.
