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.

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! Damn, you know Kanye is really having a fit now since Ye' didn't think Nike was paying him fairly. Then again, Kanye should be good with his Adidas deal. Check out Drake making his announcement HERE. And yes, he even teased the OVO Jordans on his Instagram.
In lieu of actor Paul Walker's tragic death, I was wondering what would happen to the 7th installment of the Fast and Furious. The movie was in the middle of production, but according to NY Daily News, Universal Studios decided to shut the production down indefinitely. This will give everyone the time to grieve and I'm sure they are all hurting because I'm sure Paul was like family since this movie would have been the actor's 7th, making friends with the cast and crew. With this recent situation, the movie will most likely not be in theaters as expected on July 11, 2014. And I'm sure the fans wouldn't want him written completely out the script, so we will see how they decide to proceed with the movie.
Beyonce will make anyone scream and go crazy. But I didn't think this dude would go in. Kevin Hart was in the BeyHive during her concert in L.A., according to EURweb and Kevin was all in stan-status. Looking at some of the pictures, he was too excited but when Bey approached him, to sing, according to his Instagram, he posted “That moment when you realize that you know the words to all of Beyonce’s songs…. #iFainted #iWasInTheBeeHive #iThinkiTwerkedLastNight #iWasLostInTheMoment #F-ckYall #ShowWasTheSh-t”. This was too funny! Check out a quick clip and the picture of him singing.
