Will.i.am on the Queen: "She reminds me of my grandma"
Will.i.am has given this thoughts on Britain's royal family - and he reckons the Queen is quite like his grandmother.
The Black Eyed Peas man has spent a lot of time in the country recently, with a stint as a coach on The Voice UK and a performance at the Diamond Jubilee Concert to boot.
Speaking to the Guardian, will.i.am said that he admires the royal family and that the Queen actually reminds him of his grandmother. When asked about the British Monarchy, he said:
"I like all the families in the UK. But what I like about the idea of the royal family is...they seem like they're well educated and there's something admirable about them. And the Queen...she reminds me of my grandma. I was like, 'Wow, that's how my grandma is!'."
He continued: "Elegant, classy and the way she wore her hat...even her clothes are like my grandma's clothes! She's the leader of the family, you know, and when Prince Charles called her Mummy or Mumsy I was like, 'Wow!'. It's amazing because they're just regular people. They're in the public eye but they manage to live straight."
