Pharrell Williams Spreads Sunshine at Made in America Festival


Like a gust of wind, Pharrell Williams stormed the stage on Day 2 of the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia on Sunday. Despite the wet weather, which delayed his set about an hour, The Neptunes hitmaker spread some sunshine with his feel-good hits. Wearing a red bandana and red Bee Line x Timberland boots, he opened with “Lose Yourself to Dance.”

He and his all-female dancers, the Baes, grooved to his G I R L singles “Come Get It Bae” and “Marilyn Monroe,” and took it back with some classics including “Frontin’” and “Rock Star.”

“I’m really disappointed that they did not let the press back out here to see what it looks like in Philadelphia for 100,000 people to be happy at one time,” he said before closing with “Happy.”

Watch his 50-minute set below.

Beyoncé and Jay Z are shutting the divorce rumors all the way down. Following their appearance at the MTV VMAs, the Carters cozied up on Day 2 of the Budweiser Made in America Festival in L.A. on Sunday. In between sets from Rita Ora, Chance the Rapper, and Cypress Hill, the Roc Nation mogul was spotted on the grounds at L.A. Park.

Clad in his “OTR” tour gear and a hat, he joined the crowd while watching Steve Aoki’s EDM set alongside his wife and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Later in the evening, the couple made its way to the main stage to check out Kanye West’s headlining set on the steps of City Hall. While watching from a balcony, Jay wrapped his arms around Mrs. Carter, who lovingly gazed into her husband’s eyes.

During one of his famous rants, Kanye acknowledged Jay’s role in putting the festival together. “I don’t want to go over the top with it out of respect for my big homie Jay Z,” said ‘Ye.

Jay celebrated a successful end to the first-ever L.A. festival and third annual Philly fest. “L.A. the people have spoken! No major incidents just GREAT music. 70k 2 days. Philly 3x Made in America. In the heart of both cities! 90k,” he tweeted.
