Will.i.am

Teenagers from all around the world ask questions to their idol, Will.i.am, at a press conference in London.
Here are som of the questions:

What was the greatest thing you've done in your career as an artist?
One of the biggest things was doing the inauguration of Presiden tBarack Obama and then doing the Queen's jubilee. Those are big moments. Another moment was our first concert that we ever did in front of 20 people when we first started the group. That gave us the belief that we could do other things.


The Hobbit: 3D

An unexpected Journey!
This fantasy-adventure film is perfect for fans of the Lord of the Rings films. A hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, goes to Lonely Mountain with a group of dwarves to take treasure that the dragon Smaug stole from them. They cross dangerous lands, meet strange creatures and fight battles. But will Bilbo get the treasure?


BIG FOOT (STRANGE BUT TRUE)

This "Bootmobile" is travelling around the USA to celebrate the 100th anniversary of famous clothes company, L.L. Bean.
The company specializes in outdoor* clothing, especially boots. Maybe one day it will be famous like other American products. But could the L.L. Bean boot replace Converse?
