    will.i.am, a huge fan of embracing and employing the new technologies at our disposal, will accept a CLIO Honorary Award on May 15 at New York City's Museum of Natural History.

    Congrats, Bill! Or is that "bill?"

    The Honorary Award celebrates "the work and talent of those who push the boundaries of creativity in advertising and beyond."

    That's our will!

    CLIO Awards executive director Nicole Purcell said, "will.i.am has not only mastered music but has transcended his art form, extending his boundless creativity into areas like politics, technology and philanthropy. He embodies all of the values the CLIOs represent by inspiring change and encouraging us to think differently."

    His new album #willpower is out this week!

    Do you like will.i.am and his pro-digital vibe and stance? There's hashtags in his album and song titles, for God's sake. Of course, he loves the world of tech and doesn't run screaming from it. Bravo, bravo.
