VIBE takes a look back at the biggest stories of the week in our weekly The Recap.

A famous rapper/song producer has found himself among the nominees for the 2014 Oscars. Pharrell’s “Happy,” from the Despicable Me soundtrack, was nominated for Best Original Song, and he’s “speechless.” And, Kanye West is making headlines again, but this time he hasn’t thrown any punches. Turns out his music has born a new religion dubbed Yeezianity and there are people who are taking it seriously. Holy Yeezus!
