The Internet was alight last night with memes riffing on Pharrell‘s Grammy hat choice. The obvious comparison was with the logo for fine sandwich purveyor Arby’s. But this isn’t the first time Mr. Billionaire Boys Club has gone out-of-the-box with head coverings. In fact, he’s a hat connoisseur, rocking a different piece to seemingly every public event.
The only problem? His taste is wilder than the hip gyrations Beyoncé laid down last night. What inspires Pharrell’s hat game? SlamXHype has done a little digging, here’s 6 Other Weird Places He Draws Hat-Inspiration From.
