Pharrell Williams Mourns Death of Cousin, Who Was Killed by Police in Virgina Beach Shootings

Pharrell Williams is mourning the death of his cousin Donovon Lynch after he was tragically killed by police during the shootings in Virginia Beach.

The 25-year-old was shot by a police officer in the third of three shootings that occurred last Friday night in the Virginia Beach Resort Area.

The Virginia Beach police claim that Lynch was “brandishing a handgun at the time of the shooting,” though it’s not clear on what led to the shooting. Bad Girls Club cast member Deshayla E. Harris was shot and killed during the second shooting of the night and it’s believed she was an innocent bystander.

Pharrell took to his Instagram account on Monday (March 29) to pay tribute to his late cousin.

“The loss of these lives is a tragedy beyond measure. My cousin Donovon was killed during the shootings. He was a bright light and someone who always showed up for others. It is critical my family and the other victims’ families get the transparency, honesty and justice they deserve. Virginia Beach is the epitome of hope and tenacity and, as a community, we will get through this and come out even stronger,” he wrote in the post.

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to Pharrell and his family during this difficult time.

'Sing 2' Reveals First Poster & New Cast Including Halsey, Bono & Pharrell!

Bono just revealed his first ever movie role for Sing 2!

Dreamworks Animation has shared the new cast list, summary and first poster for the upcoming film. Here’s the official summary:

Buster and his cast have turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.

But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother pig Rosita, rocker porcupine Ash, earnest gorilla Johnny, shy elephant Meena and porcine provocateur extraordinaire Gunter — have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by a ruthless mogul wolf named Jimmy Crystal.

In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star lion rock legend Clay Calloway. Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife and hasn’t been seen since.

As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage. What begins as Buster’s dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.

Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Tori Kelly, Nick Kroll, and Taron Egerton will all return for the movie, along with a handful of new faces!

Sing 2 is coming to theaters Christmas 2021.

Pharrell Williams Weighs in on Taylor Swift's Masters Battle With Scooter Braun

Pharrell Williams is weighing in.

The 47-year-old “Happy” music superstar spoke about Taylor Swift‘s ongoing battle with Scooter Braun over the rights to her masters in an interview with Variety.

“There’s no other industry out there in the world where a start-up gets off the ground and doesn’t own the trademark — it just doesn’t make sense. It may be legal, but it’s still a crime. If a bank walks away with ownership of a company and the trademark, how much should a creator really be participating? The artist should always have the lion’s share of their creation,” he said of the imperative for artists to retain rights of their music.

“It’s really unfortunate, you know. There was room for [Scooter] to make his acquisition because that’s just the way the business is, and I felt for [Taylor] and not being able to be in control of it. There’s a system in place that’s just all wrong. He’s a businessman and he also represents artists, so from his point of view he’s just making an acquisition of something that he felt would be a good investment. But the artist should have the opportunity [to retain ownership], and I don’t know whether she did or she didn’t,” he said.

“I just know that the system is wired in ways that is oftentimes not always fair to the creator. I think it should be the norm that the creators retain their rights.”

At the same time, it was recently revealed that Scooter Braun sold Taylor Swift‘s masters to another entity.

Pharrell Williams Opens Up About Working With Rihanna on 'R9'

Fans are desperate for Rihanna‘s ninth studio album, and Pharrell Williams is opening up about the process of working together.

The 47-year-old “Happy” superstar got candid with Rick Rubin as part of the Broken Record Podcast.

“It’s been a minute. Oh yeah, it’s really her at the end of the day, what she wants…sound-wise, I was trying to just make something that looks and feels like she does,” he explained of working with Rihanna on the upcoming record.

“She talks about what she wants to feel and then it’s my job to reverse engineer that…it’s the feeling first,” he went on to say.

“We’re reverse engineering that feeling and trying to turn that into something. You just kind of dive in and go for it…that doesn’t really take too long to crack. You have coordinates, you know where you’re going, you know what you’re looking for, you’ll know when you’re there.”

“We got the right writers for the right kind of tone and myself, so we kind of like just really wrestle and grapple until we feel like we’re really hitting that specific note.”

He also discussed whether the lyrics or melody come first: “It’s the melody, and then we listen to what the melody is saying…if some words do come out, in the places where there are no words, you kind of take the emotion of what you’re trying to communicate and you find the words and you do a mosaic.”

At the same time, Rihanna‘s been making headlines for a reported new romance.

Pharrell Williams & Jay-Z Take On Racial Inequalities in New Song 'Entrepreneur' - Read the Lyrics & Listen Now!

Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z have teamed up for a new song with a powerful message.

The two musicians released their collab titled “Entrepreneur,” which is about the racial inequalities Black people face in the United States.

“In this position with no choice / A system imprison young black boys,” Pharrell raps. “Distract with white noise / The brainwashed become hype boys.”

Jay then joins in, referencing social media platforms and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

“Uh, lies told to you, through YouTubes and Hulus,” Jay raps. “Shows with no hues that look like you do / Black Twitter, what’s that? When Jack gets paid, do you? / For every one Gucci, support two FUBUs.”

Ahead of the release of the song, Pharrell opened up about the message behind the song.

“The intention for a song was all about how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with,” Pharrell shared with Time. “Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education and representation?”
