Black Eyed Peas - Speedy Racer Will.i.am

will.i.am loves challenging his celebrity friends to races.

The Black Eyed Peas star is very proud of his running speed and can't resist showing off his ability to his pals - even if he isn't dressed appropriately.

He said: ''I'm very fast. I take pride in how fast I am, still to this day.

''I was in the studio the other day and me and Chris Brown were talking. I don't know how it came up but I was like, 'I'm fast'. And he was like, 'You ain't fast man' so I said, 'Let's go race'.

''His trainer gets in on it too, who was supposedly an ex-NFL footballer, so we're standing in the middle of the street and I asked if I could take my shoes off because I had dress shoes on. At least let me run barefoot! But they made me run in my Christian Louboutin shoes.

''Man let me tell you they were so upset because I not only smoked them once but smoked them twice. I beat Ne-Yo too! And his trainer.''

will claims his running talent has even led to him being given a nickname in recognition of his superior ability.

He told The Guardian newspaper: ''Willie Zoom. That's my nickname. I go 'zoooooom'. That's the sound when I beat you. Really.''

However, there is one person will knows he can't compete against - record-beating Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.

He said: ''You know when Black Eyed Peas played at the SuperBowl? Well, Usain Bolt was there. I challenged him. But it was a joke. He's faster than me.''
