James Cameron is Directing the Black Eyed Peas in 3D – Huh?
I’d first like to confess that I hate music videos. They make absolutely no sense to me. Sure there was Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, but in order to “break ground,” don’t others have to follow suit? Otherwise, you’re just an exception to the general rule of mediocrity, and lip syncing in front of a wind-machine usually doesn’t strike my fancy. So when I heard that James Cameron is directing a 3D version of the Black Eyed Peas concert, I realized that it’s time to get over it – otherwise I might self-combust from annoyance. Not only is this a gigantic version of a music video, but it’s also in the loathsome 3D. I wonder if Cameron just doesn’t know what to do with his time now that ‘Avatar’ is over, and he thought this would up his cool factor. As for the Black Eyed Peas, they are predictably humble, proclaiming that they got Cameron to do this because they are “the biggest group on the planet.”
