Not many people had a bigger year in entertainment than Pharrell Williams in 2013. The 40-year-old producer/rapper/singer/songwriter/fashion designer was everywhere this year, from award shows, covering magazines, hits all over the charts, scoring music for movies, and many business ventures outside of music. Pharrell composed the soundtrack to the movie Despicable Me and he has worked with almost nearly everyone in the industry from Miley Cyrus, Frank Ocean, Daft Punk, T.I., Solange Knowles, Mac Miller, Robin Thicke, Kanye West. Pharrell appeared alongside T.I. on Robin Thicke's hit single "Blurred Lines". The song has been a worldwide hit, has peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Pharrell's third Billboard Hot 100 number one single. Plus Pharrell released the first 24-hour music video to his Despicable Me 2 collaboration song, "Happy". With all of these accomplishments in 2013, GQ recognized Pharrell as one of their 5 people selected for the “Man of the Year” cover, which is well deserved.

Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles is being labeled a deadbeat dad, atleast according to the mother of his 3-year-old son who claims she was stiffed out of $24k in child support, TMZ reports. According to state records, Mathew has missed two of the $12k monthly payments ordered to pay to his baby mama Alexsandra Wright. Sources claim Wright is in a financial bind, and even had to pull her son from school because she can’t afford to pay for it. Hopefully these two can get some of these issues resolved before it gets to messy. Some guys need to learn the hard way there are consequences to your actions!

Well this seems a bit extravagant, but then again, we are talking about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The couple is setting their very own wedding fit for a queen and king by looking into France’s historic Palace of Versailles for their wedding, the Us Weekly reveals. A source said, “Kanye has never been married and wants a big wedding, they are not working with a budget.” That's so diva of him.Do you believe it? I'm sure of the no-budget part, but based on these two’s past, I wouldn’t be surprised if they get a corporate sponsor!
Congrats to Drake for banking a deal with Nike. And it's not just Nike. He made an announcement during his show in Oregon to announce the partnership with the Jordan brand!

And yes, he even teased the OVO Jordans on his Instagram.
