He’s a Star! Pharrell Honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Topping off his year of accolades, Pharrell ends 2014 with a Hollywood star.
Skateboard P first made his mark as one-half of the mega-producing group, The Neptunes. He ventured to become the man behind the clothing lines, Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, the songwriter to hit artists, a singer/rapper himself and a philanthropist. Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres presented the multifaceted creative with the star, making Pharrell the 2,537th recipient and only the 4th rapper to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Surrounded by his family, wife Helen Lasichanh, and 6-year old son, Rocket, Williams thanked his teachers from Virginia Beach. He also gave a special thanks to Ellen. In his speech, Williams said DeGeneres was the first to play his hit-single, “Happy” before any radio station. The song went on to hit number 1 on iTunes in 103 countries worldwide.
Congrats P! If you’re in the area, you can find his star at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the W Hollywood Hotel.
