Pharrell Williams in Adidas

Pharrell will soon be added to the long list of celebrities to make an animated appearance on The Simpsons. According to EW, Skateboard P will guest star on the Feb. 8 episode titled Walking Big & Tall. The storyline is said to have been inspired by a Milwaukee TV station that hired a composer to write a city-pride song — only for him to turn around and shop it to other cities. In the upcoming cartoon, “Pharrell offers to write a new anthem for the town,” says Simpsons executive producer Al Jean.

Just weeks after ripping into Fox News’ Sean Hannity for referring to Jay Z as a “former crack dealer,” Jon Stewart came to Hov’s defense against another old, white figure of ignorance on last night’s episode of The Daily Show. This time the target was Republican Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and potential 2016 Presidential candidate, who claimed in his new book that Jay Z is “crossing the line from husband to pimp” when it comes to Beyonce’s career by “exploiting his wife as a sex object.”

Watch below with pleasure as Jon puts another wildly out-of-touch politician in his place.
