Pharrell Celebrates 41st Birthday with SpongeBob-Themed Party


Pharrell Williams is still a kid at heart. The “Happy” hitmaker celebrated his 41st birthday with his closest friends and SpongeBob SquarePants in New York City on Friday night.

On the eve of his “SNL” performance, Pharrell turned Cipriani Wall Street into the underwater city of Bikini Bottom for one night. Wearing a BBC varsity jacket and green version of his Buffalo hat, he hit the yellow carpet with his wife Helen Lasichanh.

His favorite characters from the Nickelodeon show including SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward came out to play, along with his celebrity pals Chanel Iman, Russell Simmons, Angela Simmons, and Mashonda.

Other guests included Swizz Beatz and Pharrell’s “It’s On Again” collaborator Alicia Keys, who was fresh from the DVF Awards.

Guests got down to the funky sounds of Q-Tip, who was the DJ on duty, and the birthday boy received a custom cake in the shape of a Krabby Patty.

He received birthday wishes from his famous friends. “Happy Bday to my brother, @Pharrell!!! Been killing the game forever! And, you still look younger than the rest of us,” tweeted Justin Timberlake, while Tyler, the Creator added, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE NI**A THE PAVED THE WAY AND TO THIS DAY CONTINUES TO INSPIRE ME ON A CRAZY LEVEL.”

In addition to “SNL,” Pharrell will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on OWN’s “Oprah Prime” (formerly “Oprah’s Next Chapter”) on April 13 at 9 p.m.

    @ONIKAISKWEEN, Coming from a Barbz. Really? You really want attention?

    @Major Sushi, Keep your reply isolated to the one you’re talking to because I don’t think you want this work.
    1. “a barbz” is grammatically incorrect. It’s called plurality agreement and it’s learned at the most rudimentary level of schooling, so in a sense, you are the one that is truly childish if you can’t even adhere to that.
    2. How does calling Pharrell childish read to you as a reach for attention? You’ve got the nerve to reply to ONIKAISKWEEN insinuating that the Barbz are tea kettles calling the pot black, and thus, that you are above a entire group of like-minded individuals when a person that is as mature as you, by implication, claim to be wouldn’t even be so petty as to reply in the first place.
