Ever since Pharrell Williams turned 40 in April, the Internet has been entranced by his seemingly ageless nature: Pictures of the prolific producer show his face barely having changed since his Neptunes heyday.
Like so many times before, the Web decided the mystery of Williams's fresh looks had a simple explanation: He was a vampire, and thus doomed to walk the earth in the body of a man in his late 20s until some brave hero drove a stake through his heart.
As with other celebrities suspected of harboring bloodsucking tendencies, Williams kept mum about the rumors, until Tuesday, when the musician finally spoke out as to whether or not he was a supernatural demon. In an interview with Time Out London, he laid it all on the line: "I'm willing to go on record as saying that I don't drink people's blood."
So how does he stay so young?
"I wash my face," Williams explained, though he did not specify with what.
The "Get Lucky" singer is not the first celebrity to have to shoot down rumors of vampirism.
