*The Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am said his attempt to tweet during the band’s halftime Super Bowl performance Sunday failed because his cell phone had no service in Texas Stadium.
His Twitter was silent until after the game, when he sent out a series of tweets beginning with: “Att crashed … ahhhh!!!! The worse.”
The Peas’ frontman sent several tweets before the show, including one that said, “My butterflys are flying around like crazy.”
After lamenting the cell service during halftime, will.i.am started tweeting again. One message said, “That was so freakin sick … wow … !!!”
“I’m feeling like I’m on top of the world,” he said after the performance.
“It was fresh man,” he said. “It felt like cinematic.”
He said performing the show with his fellow band members — Fergie, Taboo and apl.de.ap — was an emotional experience.
“Playing this show just showed what you can do when you believe in a team,” will.i.am said.
He also was excited about the Super Bowl commercials because he directed the two TV spots that were shown before and after the live performance. He created and directed the commercials for Chatter.com.
