Missy Elliot has made her official return, and it is fucking excellent.
Gwen Stefani’s real estate in the pop cultural consciousness is, at present, largely occupied by her role as The Voice’s sole woman judge and girl-power megaphone.
On Sunday, August 23, Tyler, the Creator, was riding through France on the nicest tour bus he’d ever rented—a giant TV screen, a circle couch, extra beds—and heading towards the end of what was meant to be a month-long tour of Europe, reveling in the amenities his hard work had afforded him. The 24-year-old Los…
Pharrell sang his hook 15 years ago on the chorus of Jay Z’s “I Just Wanna Love You”: I’m a hustler, baby, I just want you to know, it ain’t where I’ve been, but where I’m about to go.
A bright spot on an otherwise bleak album, Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” instantly feels necessary. Besides being the most celebratory jam on To Pimp a Butterfly, it’s a modern-day liberation anthem. It’s that first salvational gasp after nearly drowning. Yet, for such a happy song, “Alright” is innately sad. By design,…

Professional beggar/singer Robin Thicke has barely spoken to the press since his breakup with Paula Patton and his subsequent Paula album tribute and his subsequent apology tour. In retrospect, he realizes some of his actions during that time maayyyyy have been kind of pathetic.
Pharrell has previewed his new track, “Freedom,” and while it seems the message will be timely, the production sounds more than a little familiar—namely, it’s very close to “Hot Music,” the classic 1990 house track by Soho, aka New York dancefloor legend Pal Joey.
Now that Tidal has, so far, proven to be simply a Nice Idea, Apple is stepping up its iTunes Radio game and attempting to recruit the likes of Drake, Pharrell and David Guetta as guest DJs for its Beats
Since the beginning of recorded history, humans have been memorializing the hottest and most famous among them in wax. The figures created by Madame Tussaud and her army of artists and are so lifelike that you might find it impossible to tell them apart from the real thing. Don’t believe me? Check out the sliding…
With “vi$ions,” Florida vocalist Cherele joins the hallowed canon of women telling their lovers to “eat it” on wax, a deeply noble endeavor. The video, which includes a moment where she Omars-out and robs some drug dealers before screaming into her phone with a red cup (the latter part: I can relate), debuted today…
It’s called “California Roll”—and as you might expect from a man who’s not shy about his love of all things green, it’s an homage to weed.
Here’s the Kardashian/Jenner/West clan, looking very Partridge Family and flowy and also like they don’t give a fuck that they’re totally underdressed for church.
Supermodel-turnt-actor Cara Delevingne has been working with Pharrell on an album (of music!) as of late, and Tuesday in New York at Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Métiers d'Art presentation, the duo debuted the fruits of that labor. She has nice tone but um, this clip is a tad pitchy, if you will. And because of that: on a…
Pharrell has won many awards in life, but the funny thing is that winners never get used to winning all the time. While accepting the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance for "Happy," the super-producer did a great job of trying not to be awkward while being awkward anyway.

On November 13, 11 days prior to a grand jury's decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown, Pharrell Williams gave an interview to Ebony about racism and Ferguson, MO. The things he said (that Michael Brown's actions looked "bully-ish" and he should have listened to Wilson's orders)…
Earlier this month at the Odd Future Carnival, Pharrell previewed a bit of this Gwen track and said it was "about feminism." Today, Stefani dropped the album art and the song hit the internet tout suite. Not totally sure what this has to do with feminism, really except, is everyone just discovering Le Tigre or what…
