It seems that all of Hollywood and the music community are banding together to help those affected by the tsunami and earthquake in Japan. Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are just two examples, with Gaga and her little monsters raising more than $250,000 for relief efforts, and fellow pop star Katy Perry donating funds from her tour merchandise.
Now the Black Eyed Peas are getting in the game. They hope that their music video for their track “Just Can’t Get Enough” will raise awareness and funds for those who need help. The guerilla-style video was shot over three days in Japan one week before the country was hit by the natural disaster.
“It was the easiest video I ever shot because it was us living our lives,” Fergie told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I love that it’s showing a true perspective of how it can sometimes be lonely on the road away from our loved ones. It also demonstrates the love and connection we have with Japan. Our heart goes out to all of the Japanese people who have been affected by this natural disaster.”
The video will reportedly display the message, “This video was filmed in Japan one week before the earthquake. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan. We love you,” according to AceShowbiz.com. The clip closes with a call to arms and a request to donate to the Red Cross.
“It was an amazing moment in time because Japan has always been my favorite place on the planet,” group member Taboo explained about the video, which will premiere Thursday. The band will also perform on “American Idol” that same day to premiere the track.
“It was great to do our video there. God bless the Japanese. Our love goes out to them,” Taboo said.
