The Neptunes' Pharrell Williams knows how to take a joke and dish one out as well after receiving an onslaught of playful disses over a questionable fashion statement he made at Sunday night's Grammy Awards ceremony.

With jabs thrown at him over donning an oversized brown hat, Pharrell jumped into the action via his Twitter page.

It's the first time Smokey Bear's ever added fuel to a fire -- telling TMZ, he couldn't be more amped that Pharrell ripped off his famous hat last night at the Grammys ... which is more than we can say for Arby's. If you didn't watch the Grammy Awards last night, you probably still saw Pharrell's insane Smokey Bear styled hat somewhere on the horizon ... and it caused a FIRESTORM on the Internet. Obviously we didn't speak directly to Smokey Bear -- he's way too busy fighting fires -- but his rep tells us, they're ecstatic ... Pharrell's hat "is proof that Smokey is as relevant an icon today as he was 70 years ago." Even Arby's got in on the action ... tweeting, "Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back?" Pharrell tweeted back, "Y'all tryna start a roast beef?" (TMZ)

A mass majority of the jokes appeared to stem from various Twitter pages.

"Happy" singer Pharrell Williams, 40, wore a large brown headpiece to the Grammy Awards on Sunday night -- where he cleaned up with seven nominations in five different categories -- and everyone had something to say, or tweet, about it. Smokey the Bear's hat, Arby's restaurant logo, Woody's hat from "Toy Story" and even the Sorting Hat from "Harry Potter" were among the famous chapeaus drawing comparisons to the record producer's award show look.

Not to be outdone, music icons Beyoncé and Madonna also fell victim to playful memes during Grammy night.

Beyoncé's hair during her opening performance of "Drunk In Love"? That's another story. The superstar took the stage with a short hairstyle of wet waves -- an obvious reference to the hair she wears in the music video for the song. We don't think Queen Bey suffered as much criticism as Madonna did, though. While the 55-year-old mom explained that her black suit, hat and cane were chosen by her son, David (who wore a matching outfit), that didn't make the armchair fashionistas any kinder. (CNN)

Rap superstar Jay Z and Pharrell snatched up some trophies Sunday night.

Pharell Williams was named non-classical producer of the year, his work on among others Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Rock icon Led Zeppelin won their first Grammy for best rock album, "Celebration Day," from a concert they did seven years ago. Weird stuff like that is common at the Grammys. The video for "Suit and Tie," Justin Timberlake's collaboration with Jay Z (the big nominee with nine) was named best music video. (SGV Tribune)
