will.i.am not 'ashamed' of real name

will.i.am has said that he isn't 'ashamed' of his real name.

Speaking to The Daily Star he said: 'I saw the headline  saying I can get quite hostile if I'm called William Adams (but) that's nonsense.

'I'm never hostile and I ain't ashamed of the name on my birth certificate.

'I get stopped at the airport, and a ton of people are called William Adams, right?

'But there's one other William James Adams that the airport security always mistake me for.

'So I said: 'No, I'm not THAT William James Adams'. That story got flipped.'
