A lawyer for will.i.am responded to what he called "misinformation" over reports that Will filed a copyright claim against Pharrell Williams' "i am OTHER" brand. A statement said that Will isn't suing Pharrell, but is engaging in a "run-of-the-mill trademark procedure" in order to "defend trademarks that have been registered and that will.i.am has used widely and continuously for many years."
Will.i.am owns the copyright to the phrase "I AM" and claims that Pharrell's new brand is "confusingly similar" and that the "i am OTHER" logo would appear on goods in a manner similar to those that bear will.i.am's mark.

My dad deserves a break from the heat and a treat to cool himself down. He’s always tired and overheated but still keeps pushing I’d do anything to see my dad cooled and relaxing, he does so much for us this would be the most amazing gift.
Taylor Swift took home top honors at The Fragrance Foundation Awards and won the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year Award for her Wonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted scents.
Swift said: "My first fragrance, Wonderstruck, was all about a daydream, a fantasy. It was this romantic idea that we all have. I think that beginning with a lyric was one of my favorite parts about creating it, because I love telling stories and building and adding pages as we go. This is a really nice page to add to that story."
