Fast food chain Arby’s bought Pharrell’s stupid Grammy’s hat for $44,000. The makers of the big beef and cheddar forked over the cash in a Ebay auction for charity. When Pharrell first wore the hat during the Grammy’s, Arby’s joked that they wanted their hat back because it kinda sorta not really looks like their logo. The hat was “designed” by famous fashion designer and crypt keeper look-a-like Vivienne Westwood. And by design I mean she took Smokey the Bear’s hat, took a shit in it, emptied the shit, and then put it on Pharrell’s head. Arby’s Tweeted:
“@Pharrell You’re welcome. We’re HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back. Good luck at the #Oscars tonight! “
It’s unclear what Arby’s is going to do with the ugly hat. Perhaps they will display it in their restaurants so that the slack jawed yokels and morbidly obese people who frequent the restaurant can catch a whiff of music stardom. Or the CEO will just wear it around the house and scare the cat.

Back in the good, old days, if two rappers didn’t like each other, they’d either settle their beef by writing hate-filled diss tracks about each other, like Jay-Z and Nas, or in extreme cases, it would be settled in the streets by warring gang members*, like Biggie and Tupac. Unfortunately, today’s rappers feud about as well two special needs girls. Case in point – Pharrell is suing will.i.am over the use and ownership of the phrase “I am”.
According to TMZ, will.i.am’s lawyers fired the first shots with a cease and desist after Pharrell created the YouTube channel “I Am Other”, so Pharrell responded by quoting Dr. Seuss lines in his own lawsuit, in proving why he should be able keep the title. I think the simple solution is to just let Suge Knight handle this the right way in exchange for not sending him back to jail. Justice used to mean something in this country.
*And dirty cops. You can’t ever forget the dirty cops.
