On February 8th, Skateboard P will meet one of the most iconic skaters of all-time: Bart Simpson. That's right, Pharrell will see an animated version of himself appear on an episode of "The Simpsons" next month, marking a big career milestone for any musician.
In December we received the nominations for the 2015 Grammys, which are right around the corner now. The event goes down on February 8th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Today the annual music accolades announced a few familiar r'n'b faces as performers for the night.
A$AP Rocky already has one foot apiece in the worlds of fashion and music, and now he's branching out even further. His next venture is acting, as he has a supporting role in "Dope," an indie film produced in part by Pharrell and Diddy that will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend.
