He says he is “fascinated” by quantum physics and has decided to resume his education and will study computer science later this year. Cool!

Will.i.am is known for his love of technology and has urged young people to develop an interest in new sciences in order to “change lives”.

He added: “If you live in a ghetto and really want not to just change your life and your family’s life but change your ghetto’s life, make your ghetto a good neighbourhood, learn science, try to be like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

“You’ll change not just your family and your neighbourhood, you’ll change your whole city. Music is great, athletics is great, but the guys in Silicon valley and the dudes that make Twitter and Facebook, they’re changing the world.”

I’m sure he’s got some smart friends that can help him with his homework.
