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.

When you get ready to fly, you have to follow directions. But, Wale apparently did not. He was put off of a plane because he didn't turn his phone off, according to EURweb. Wale tweeted he really did have his phone off, though. A rep for American Airlines did confirm that a flight from Atlanta to LaGuardia had to stop in Raleigh-Durham due to two disruptive passengers, but they couldn't reveal which passengers were disruptive. But also according to Wale's tweets, two others were causing issues and one passenger was arrested.
