Pharrell is not a vampire – he just has an insatiable appetite for dumplings and washes his face

“Pharrell Williams was born on April 5, 1973, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the oldest of three sons of Carolyn, a teacher, and Pharaoh Williams, a handyman.”

Or at least that’s what Wikipedia says.

The theory going around is that he’s actually a vampire. Why? Because he hasn’t aged a day since 1492, and his dad’s name is Pharaoh (did you miss that bit?) Here’s the compelling photographic evidence to back it up:

“Is Pharrell Williams a vampire?” has become a pretty popular search term on Google over the past few days, so an intrepid reporter from Time Out London decided to ask him directly (via Acclaim). Here’s what he said: “No I am not. I’m willing to go on record as saying that I don’t drink people’s blood. How do I stay so young-looking for a 40-year-old? I wash my face.”

That’s right … HE WASHES HIS FACE!

Pharrell, of course, will be in Australia for Future Music Festival in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, as well as sideshows in Brisbane and Perth. And he’s bringing his huge appetite for dumplings, as this bill from London restaurant Ping Pong proves:
