    Wilco front-man Jeff Tweedy made the interweb implode today by appearing at a book launch party last evening to recite the lyrics to "My Humps" by The Black Eyed Peas like a poetry reading AND played a cover of "I Got A Feelin'". Confused, nervous, and awkward are a good start to describe how these videos make us feel.

    The book in question is Dan Sinker's "The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest of Mayor Emanuel," and the reassuring laughter of the crowd does little to quell the foreboding feeling of stupidity when hearing the BEP masterpiece read straight, but maybe that's just us. The mayor himself was present (and giggling?). Watch it unfold below.

    Wilco's new album The Whole Love is out 9/27, and it promises to be all kinds of awesome, despite this weirdness. Check it.
