Ask Kanye West: There's no better way to tell everyone someone else's secret than in block letters on your blog. "WILL I AM IS PRODUCING ON U2's NEXT ALBUM. I'M SURE IT WILL BE DOPE AS SHIT JUDGING FROM THE CRAZY BEATS HE'S DONE IN THE PAST 3 YEARS!" [via Pitchforkmedia.com].

Though it was only last week that Will.i.Am told Billboard.com, "I'm not supposed to talk about that," in regards to his musical dealings with U2, it seems West has no problem dishing.

That said, who is to say the production secret-leaker was the real Kanye West? After all, we (and all of Stephen Colbert's viewing audience) have been fooled by "West's" internet commentary before.

Watch: Will.I.Am, "Yes We Can"

PLUS: Watch Will.I.Am. as a hologram on CNN!
