will.i.am's helicopter trip sparks concerns at climate debate
Rapper will.i.am caused controversy earlier this week by turning up for a climate change debate in a gas-guzzling helicopter.
The Black Eyes Peas star, who is currently shooting The Voice, was the guest of honour at Oxford University for a special talk on the environment.
He told the audience, "Climate change should be the thing that we are all worried and concerned about as humans on this planet, how we affect the planet, our consumption, and how we treat the place that we live in."
Will.i.am made the trip by air to save time as he was later due in Taunton to carry the Olympic torch ahead of the London 2012 Games this summer - but his method of transport to the climate talk was questioned by onlookers.
Climate expert Myles Allen tells the Daily Star, "The irony didn't escape everybody. But he's committed to the issues and he's written songs about it."
what do you think?
Oxford University, are you serious. This man can barely dress himself.
Just another celebrity HYPOCRIT
He should have walked!
do we make a big deal over medical helicopters or police helicopters or air/sea rescue helicopters i dont think so. hes not a hypocrit hes just a busy man trying to do all he can to help make aware the problems and one little ride in a helicopter doesnt make him a villian it just means he has to use any and all means to keep to his tight schedule of helping out others so let him be and let him do the good he is doing.
