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.

On the heels of his album, "Yeezus," Kanye West has also teamed with A.P.C. designer, Jean Touitou on a collection from Kanye that includes the basics, a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a hoodie. And I wouldn't be surprised if these items cost a grip. But according to Eurweb, Kanye wasn't the easiest to work with. No, you don't say! The designer told GQ it actually took about two years to complete the looks because Kanye was hard to work with. Or maybe he was trying to be a perfectionist? So you mean to tell me after two years, all we get is a pair of jeans and tee? That means it would be longer just to see a button down shirt. I'm kidding!
