Blake Shelton on his new 'Voice' costars Gwen Stefani and Pharrell: 'That's my competition'

Tonight’s premiere of the new season of The Voice features two familiar faces and two newcomers. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are back once again, but they’ll be joined by first-time coaches Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani. The latter two are both new to singing competitions, and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of personalities emerge as the blind auditions roll on.

But neither Stefani nor Williams should look to their left for advice, Shelton tells EW: “I didn’t tell them crap,” Shelton said, laughing. “That’s my competition. We do these interviews, and Adam will get mad at me because I won’t help them. This is a competition, and my job is to try to win this thing. When I started on this show, nobody helped me!”

Robin-Thicke-Review.jpg

Robin Thicke hasn’t stopped talking about his his wife, Paula Patton, since their February separation. There were the many songs he dedicated to her and cried through on tour, the entire album titled Paula promoted as an apology. And apparently, even a legal meeting wasn’t safe from mention of her: In a testimony acquired by The Hollywood Reporter, Thicke mentions his separation from his wife multiple times.

Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and T.I. filed a lawsuit last year in an attempt to protect their 2013 song “Blurred Lines” against Marvin Gaye’s children’s claims that the song is a rip-off of their father’s 1977 hit “Got to Give it Up.” Thicke gave his deposition, which also included confessions of drug abuse, in April.

On the Scene: Pharrell gets 'Happy' at Spike Lee-directed AmEx 'Unstaged' show

Pharrell is all about the ladies: His most recent album is called G I R L, its songs are almost exclusively about females, and at his American Express “Unstaged” show last night at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater, he made a special point to introduce his “baes” (a.k.a. his backup singers and dancers): “There’s no stars on this stage, everybody up here’s suns,” he said, forgetting that suns technically are stars… but hey, the sentiment was there.

Step aside Jay and ‘Ye, Pharrell is the new King of Cool. The rapper/producer/entreprener/fashion icon graces the cover of the GQ‘s Style Issue this month. (Yep, he’s winking at you.)

The photo spread featured an amazing polka-dot ensemble that you can’t miss. Pharrell really seems to be bringing the Dr. Seuss game to his style choices and it totally works for him. (It’s the cheekbones.) While cruising around Miami, he shared his thoughts on politics, black culture and the space and time continuum. Here are some highlights:

On the girls-only gym he’s invested in: “they can find their inner beauty and find their inner challenging spirit and find their bravery, all by dancing, and then at the same time getting fit…you’re going to see loads and loads of women doing, you know, trap dances and squatting low…”

Pharrell's Grammy hat is up for auction

Pharrell Williams: Producer, singer, Oscar nominee… and charity haberdasher?

The “Happy” artist is auctioning off the Vivienne Westwood-designed mountie hat he wore at this year’s Grammys — and the bidding is already taking off. The item’s currently listed on eBay for over $10,000, which is about as expensive as a hoodie from Pharrell’s Billionaire Boys Club label.
