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.
According to TMZ, Ex-NBA Gilbert Arenas was pulled over this morning around 2:30 AM by the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles for speeding in a ford pickup. It didn't take the police very long to see that Gilbert had illegal fireworks in the bed of the truck because they were apparently in plain sight. He was arrested on the spot and booked for possession of illegal fireworks, and cited for speeding. He was allegedly drivng at 80 mph and didn't have a drivers license on him. Wow, I guess Gilbert Arenas can definitely say he went down with a bang!
