Examples in context

‘Kim K, Chris Rock, Vanessa Hudgens Attend Pharrell’s Hotel Launch

Pharrell Williams now has his very own hotel where you let the good times roll — and that’s exactly what Hollywood’s finest flew out to do … with some of the biggest names in town.

The singer/producer was on hand Friday in Miami with his biz partner, David Grutman, for the launch of their joint venture … a little place they call the Goodtime Hotel, which is right by the beach.

….

It’s been a while since we’ve seen so many stars come together like this — of course, the vaccine rollout is in full flux … so we might have to get used to this sorta sight again.

As for Pharrell and Grutman, it looks like they’re rolling in it … or at least are about to be, anyway. Congrats !’
