The judge of British 'The Voice' says working on music helps him deal with the mental disorder which makes him difficult to concentrate on different tasks.

will.i.am admits that he struggles to concentrate and complete simple everyday tasks due to ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). In an interview with Britain's Sunday Mirror, the Black Eyed Peas frontman opened up about his medical condition.

"I have ADHD. I'll admit it," will.i.am told the magazine. "I've got all this stuff in my head at the same time as I'm doing stuff and I don't know how to stop or slow down. But it's all good because I know how to control it."

However, the judge of British "The Voice" explained that the the disorder wasn't always a bad thing, as it also benefited him. He said, "One thing I learned about ADHD is that it's hard to keep your attention and you can't sit still and you're always moving and thinking about a whole bunch of things. But those traits work well for me in studios and in meetings about creative ideas."

"I've figured out a place for it. If you listen to the songs I write, they are the most ADHD songs ever. They have five hooks in one and it all happens in three minutes. I figured out a way of working with it," he continued.

The 38-year-old musician revealed that with the disorder, working on music was the best job. He said, "Music is my therapy and my straitjacket. Music keeps me sane and keeps my mind on something. It's fragile up there."

"My mind would wander, and if it wanders then that's not good because I could scare myself thinking of weirdo stuff," he added. "Music brings control to my thoughts. It's not escape -it's just order. I'm making order out of a disorder."
