The Black Eyed Peas addressed persistent rumors of a breakup by announcing they are focusing on individual projects at the moment.

Band member apl.de.ap told Reuters, "We're going to take a little vacation and focus on our personal things," while fellow BEP Will.i.am told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that the band "always have two cycles of records and then we take a break." He added, "When we take breaks you know, we work on side projects and get our personal stuff in order to then come back and make beautiful music."

The Peas are set to play their last concert before the break in Miami Wednesday. The show will also feature Marc Antony, Cee Lo Green, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Jason Derulo.
