BBC’s 1st European Flagship


“Covering over 800 sq ft and split over 2 levels, the new store continues the success of the recent pop up ‘satellite store’ in London and also marks the brands first permanent space in the EU. It follows the New York store – which first opened in 2007, and the Japan store, which opened more recently 2012.

The stores interior reflects the brand language as engineered by world famous designers- Wonderwall. Divided into 2 concepts, the decor bares the ‘Starfield pattern’ that has become synonymous with Billionaire Boys Club, contrasting with the clean 1950s ice cream parlour identity of ICECREAM. Hit the jump to take a look inside”

T.I. Gives His Opinion On The “Blurred Lines” Lawsuit


After initially being held out of the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke, the Gaye Family reportedly asked for T.I. to be held accountable too, since T.I.’s guest verse makes him one of the song’s writers. The jury ruled to award the Gaye Family $7.4 million in damages and has also asked for an injunction pertaining to further distribution of “Blurred Lines.”

John Legend: Blurred Lines Verdict’s A Slippery Slope

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
John Legend has weighed in on the recent court case between Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams and Marvin Gaye’s family. John Legend thinks the verdict in the Blurred Lines copyright case could be “a slippery slope”. Singers Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams recently lost their court battle against Marvin Gaye’s family over their 2013 hit single.

The judge found that the track infringed the copyright of Marvin’s 1977 hit Got To Give It Up and his family were awarded $7.3 million in damages. While the pair have appealed the decision, singer John believes the verdict could set a scary precedent for artists creating music inspired by others.

Pharrell Spreads His ‘Happy’ Message At UN International Day Of Happiness


The podium at the United Nations in New York has been the scene of countless speeches both passionate and dull, but on Friday the audience was not world leaders but children, and they mobbed the speaker. Pop star Pharrell Williams – best known for his viral hit Happy – addressed the UN General Assembly on the International Day Of Happiness as he raised his voice on the dangers of climate change.


After he spoke, Happy came on the speakers of the normally solemn hall as dozens of teenagers and children raced toward him with their camera phones in the hope he would dance. UN security guards rushed into the crowd in fear of a stampede as an official took the microphone to urge everyone to step back.

Williams has been working with former US vice president Al Gore to organise global concerts in June to build public pressure for a UN-backed agreement on climate change. “You should know that happiness is your birthright,” Williams told the hundreds of assembled children, whose placards all read “#happyplanet” instead of the usual names of UN member states.

“If you don’t take care of your home, you don’t have a life, so we have to now transition from climate change to climate action,” he said. Environmentalist Philippe Cousteau Jr. joined Williams to warn that the effects of climate change were looking even worse than initially feared, pointing to Cyclone Pam, which ravaged the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu last week, as well as the rapidly melting Arctic ice. “One of the scary things about climate change is that all of our predictions have been too conservative,” Mr Cousteau, the grandson of legendary French ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, said.

Pharrell Addresses ‘Blurred Lines’ Verdict: The ‘Jury Voted On Emotion’


Losing to Marvin Gaye’s estate in the “Blurred Lines” court case was a surprise for Pharrell Williams. “It was shocking,” Pharrell told Access Hollywood’s Liz Hernandez on Friday, of last week’s verdict awarding $7.3 million to the Marvin Gaye estate for copyright infringement of Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.” “But, I think, when you look back at it, I think the jury voted on emotion and not the — this is my opinion — I feel like the verdict was based on emotion and not the real true issue, which was copyright infringement. There’s no copyright infringement.”

As has been reported, Pharrell and Robin Thicke plan to challenge the verdict. And while the “Voice” coach/Grammy winner said that the verdict won’t change the way he makes music, he does worry how it could affect how others pursue their craft. “If the verdict stands, it could. If that verdict stands, people can’t be inspired by anything, companies can’t be inspired by anything, or else they’re liable for suit,” he told Liz.

Pharrell Teams With Street Artist JR For Ballet Film On French Riots, Due April 25

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Pharrell has teamed up with French street artist JR for a film version of a ballet inspired by riots that rocked housing projects a decade ago in France. The 17-minute film “Les Bosquets,” named for a housing project in the Paris suburb Montfermeil hit by the 2005 unrest, is to premiere at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival in April 25, JR announced on his website.

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
JR directed and wrote the film, while composers include Williams, whose song “Happy” became a global sensation and who has been the producer behind a list of pop hits. Williams, recently in the news after a US jury found that he and Robin Thicke stole from Marvin Gaye to create their mega-hit “Blurred Lines,” is also listed as an executive producer for the film on the festival’s website.

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
The other composers for the film are French musician and director Woodkid and German composer Hans Zimmer, whose recent accolades include an Oscar nomination for his score for the film “Interstellar.” “The film ‘Les Bosquets‘ brings the audience in a place where art, social uproar and the power of image interweave,” JR’s website said, adding that it was based on a performance of “Les Bosquets” by the New York City Ballet last year.

Pharrell Responds To “Blurred Lines” Verdict: ‘Blurred Lines’ Ruling ‘Is About Protecting The Intellectual Rights Of People Who Have Ideas & Threatens All Artists’

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Pharrell Williams has stayed quiet since the “Blurred Lines” case reached a verdict, which awarded Marvin Gaye’s family $7.3 million for copyright infringement. But in an interview with the Financial Times, Williams spoke out against the ruling, calling it a “handicap” to artists.

“The verdict handicaps any creator out there who is making something that might be inspired by something else,” he said. “This applies to fashion, music, design … anything. If we lose our freedom to be inspired we’re going to look up one day and the entertainment industry as we know it will be frozen in litigation. This is about protecting the intellectual rights of people who have ideas.”

Jim Beanz Talks About The ‘Blurred Lines’ Verdict

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Producer Jim Beanz sat down with NBCNews to talk about his recent success with the Empire series and the music of the Soundtrack. NBCNews also asked him about what he thinks about the ‘Blurred Lines’ Verdict, check it out below.

Being that sampling is much apart of cultivating today’s hiphop records– What are your thoughts on the recent Marvin Gaye- Pharrell lawsuit?
Personally speaking, I love Marvin Gaye and I admire both Robin Thicke and Pharrell. Besides the fact that both of the songs have cowbell, I don’t hear a melody that was copied at all. Different people have different perceptions. Musically, I don’t hear any similarities. To each it’s own. I feel that “Blurred Lines” was a great song and it’s sad that it had to come down to this point. The judges ruling was probably a blessing for Marvin’s family. This might put a damper on sampling from more traditional records. Us younger songwriters and producers are gonna have to be extra careful now because 7.4 million dollars is a lot of money! (laughs)
