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.
As more stories come out about Lamar Odom's drug addiction, we're hearing he turned down help of his former teammates. According to Radar Online, Lamar rejected intervention attempts by teammates from the LA Clippers and LA Lakers, as well as his agent, in a hotel room. A source said he was definitely under the influence of a substance, but then Lamar left the hotel premises and returned home, as we learned this week. But here's where the drug stories get a little tricky. Some sources say his addiction is a crack cocaine addiction, but Radar Online says Lamar is addicted to OxyCotin. We just hope Lamar gets the help he needs!
