It was only a matter of time, and that time came on Thursday for the incomparable Pharrell Williams, as the hitmaker and fashion icon was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Pharrell has had an epic year, from winning Grammys to performing at the Oscars, and releasing his acclaimed sophomore album G I R L, which was of course preceded by the massive international hit “Happy.”
Joined by his wife Helen Lasichanh and son Rocket, Skateboard P took the podium to thank his music teachers and grandmother. “I’m ever so grateful for this honor,” he said. “I could never properly explain what this means for me, a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia, who had no idea where my love of music would ever take me.”
Pharrell received even more good news this morning when he found out that he was nominated for 2015 Grammys including Best Urban Contemporary Album. He will perform during “A Very Grammy Christmas” on CBS tonight.
