1. There’s no escaping Pharrell’s hat. It even has its own parody twitter account.  If you’ve ever wondered about the hat’s origins, Malcolm McLaren wore it first.
McLaren sought “the look of music and the sound of fashion” and brought us Duck Rock, the first album that combined hip-hop, world music and scratching.
