Pharrell Williams has always been a big part of the music scene, working quietly on producing big hits for the likes of Britney Spears, Jay Z and Snoop Dogg. But arguably, the producer didn’t become a widespread recognizable figure until last summer when two songs he had a hand in went big: the ubiquitous “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke and “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk. And then there was his third big song of the year, “Happy” from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. It’s a song that has its own 24 hour music video and has earned the producer an Oscar nomination at next month’s shindig.
But that’s not all people are talking about; we just can’t help obsess over his face, not only because it’s quite handsome but also because it’s so incredibly youthful looking for a 40-year-old man. In fact, New York Magazine’s entertainment blog, Vulture, created a quiz to see if their readers can tell which photo of Pharrell is older (hint/spoiler: look for the shine).
So what’s the producer’s youthful secret? Did he find the fountain of youth? Does he replenish his skin’s thirst with buckets of La Mer creme? Or is he really a vampire in disguise?
One brave soul in the form of TimeOut reporter Alexi Duggins tried to pry the dirty secret from him but sadly, Pharrell’s skincare regimen is hardly a dramatic affair.
Lastly, it seems like a lot of people are searching for ‘Is Pharrell Williams a vampire?’ on Google. Are you a vampire?
No I am not. I’m willing to go on record as saying that I don’t drink people’s blood. How do I stay so young-looking for a 40-year-old? I wash my face.
So that’s that, or, at the very least, that’s what he wants us to believe. *Starts furiously writing Pharrell Is A Warlock fanfic*
