Whoa! Huge Plans For Pharrell Williams!

Published

on

From Singing, fashion and producing, Pharrell Williams can easily be called one of Hollywood’s top triple threats. And now, the star is adding even more to his already extensive resume.

On Monday morning, NBC’s The Voice confirmed via Twitter that the “Happy” singer will be joining Season 7 of the hit singing competition show.

“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” they wrote.

Following the announcement, the 40-year-old tweeted:

“This is going to be so fun,” Williams wrote.

 

Voice coach Adam Levine also writing, “Welcome to the circus dude!”

Pharrell garnered a lot of attention last year after he released the hot track for Despicable Me 2. The song went on to be nominated for an Oscar, but was beat out by Frozen’s “Let It Go.”

The Voice’s executive producer Mark Burnett also responded to the news, “I am thrilled to have Pharrell come back to The Voice family, and this time…as a coach. Continuing in The Voice tradition of having the biggest and most current music stars as coaches, Pharrell fits perfectly.”

Former coach CeeLo Green announced back in February that he was not going to be returning to the show. “I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year,” Green said during the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice, too. I’m not coming back, guys.”

It’s unsure what other shake ups will happen but according to reports, new names will be released sooner than later.

In the meantime, check out Usher, Skakira, Adam and Black Shelton on the current season of The Voice, Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
