First Dibs: What’s The Latest Way Pharrell Williams Has Made Us “Happy?”

Rihanna wins in a major settlement, Cee Lo Green is saying goodbye, and Madonna is more of an influence on her kids than we first thought.

  • Pharrell Williams has been blowing up the music world lately, and he’s not slowing down. The super-producer is hitting fans with his new album, G I R L, on March 3, right on the heels of his performance at this year’s Academy Awards. Goodness, Pharrell’s moving so fast, we’re not sure we can keep up! [Rolling Stone]
  • Rihanna is getting the last laugh. After suing her former account for mismanaging her finances back in 2009, the pop star is being awarded more than $10 million in a settlement. Come on, they should’ve known better than to mess with Riri! [Vibe]
  • Well, there’s at least one singer we won’t be hearing on The Voice any longer. Cee Lo Green announced that he won’t be back to judge the music competition show, mostly because he’s handling some other projects. But he admits that he’ll miss picking out music’s latest hopefuls. [Us Magazine]
  • Madonna has inspired millions with her style, and now that includes her son, David Banda. The Material Girl posted a pic online of her adopted son sporting a gold grill, months after the star debuted her own oral ornament. Watch below to see how Miley Cyrus recently invoked Madonna during her Unplugged special. [MTV News]
