Pharrell – ‘Happy’ to be Multi-Talented

Pharell Williams has had a phenomenal year.  This multi-talented singer/songwriter/drummer/record producer has been involved in writing performing and/or producing some of the biggest hits of the past twelve months including Blurred Lines, Get Lucky and Happy.  He composed the score for Despicable Me and is now writing the soundtrack for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  He was nominated for an Oscar and won a few more Grammies to bring his Grammy Award total to seven. He made a hat the most famous piece of headgear since Princess Beatrice’s fascinator upstaged Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.  Oh and he’s slated to replace Cee-Lo Green as a coach on The Voice, so he’ll soon be adding ‘television star’ to his litany of recent accomplishments.

If you’re thinking he’s all work, work, work, consider that this year also marked his marriage to his long-time love — the model/fashion designer Helen Lasichanh.

And check out this visually stunning after school centre he’s bankrolling in his hometown of Virginia Beach.

Yet this is not the end to this man’s talents.  As a fashion designer and entrepreneur, he co-founded two clothing brands (Ice Cream and Billionaire Boys Club). He’s co-designed jewelry and glasses for Louis Vuitton.

He’s designed furniture.

He’s curated art exhibits.

He co-created a sculpture with Takashi Murakami at Art Basel.  He’s an interview with him at the event:

Pharrell can inspire us DaVincis to be happy about our many talents. We can love what we do and do what we love.  In many media.
