Pharrell Williams Cries To Oprah Over Global Response To "Happy"

Apr 15, 2014 11:50 AM

Tears of joy!!

Pharrell Williams appeared on Oprah Prime on Sunday night and was moved to tears when the talk show host played him a montage of fans from around the world dancing and singing to his song "Happy".

"It's overwhelming, because it's like I love what I do, and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it to this point to feel that," he explained.

Queen O had nothing but praise for the music man, too!

"I so now get why it's so infectious - because it came from such a clear space that the energy was absolutely uninterrupted by anything than allowing it to flow from the heart to heart," she gushed.

We love him even more after seeing this!




Pharrell Williams Joins The Voice As A Judge For Season Seven

Talk about getting lucky!

On Monday The Voice posted the above photo on their Twitter account and wrote, “Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7."

Pharrell tweeted, "This is going to be so fun," and Adam Levine, who has been a judge on the show for the past 6 seasons, wrote, "Welcome to the circus dude!"

Obviously Adam will be joining Pharrell next season (I mean, how could he not?), but as of right now it looks like there are at least two other chairs up for grabs on the judging panel.

Executive producer Mark Burnett noted that the rest of the judges would be announced at a later date and added, "I am thrilled to have Pharrell come back to The Voice family, and this time...as a coach. Continuing in The Voice tradition of having the biggest and most current music stars as coaches, Pharrell fits perfectly."




Pharrell Williams Rocks Signature Mountie Hat For Date Night With His Wife

You can leave your hat on, Pharrell!

Pharrell Williams wore his signature Vivienne Westwood mountie hat for a date night with his new wife Helen Lasichanh on Wednesday night. The adorable duo had a night on the town at the Violet Grey event in Beverly Hills. We can't get enough of this stylish pair! And apparently Pharrell can't get enough of his new hat!

Along with the sky-high hat, the "Blurred Lines" singer wore jeans and a satin bomber jacket with embroidered Chinese dragons on it. Pharrell's lady love opted for black pants, top, a navy blazer and some kicky ankle boots.

The 40-year-old singer-songwriter has been on a non-stop mountie-wearing kick since first sporting the jaunty cap at the 2014 Grammy Awards. On Monday, the "Get Lucky" singer wore a green version of the hat while shoe shopping at Collette in Paris. It appears as though the music man has the hat in green, grey and brown. If you like something, get one in every color!

And if you want a piece of the action, the producer/singer is now selling off his now-famous hat on eBay with the proceeds of the auction going to his foundation, One Hand to Another, which benefits at-risk youth. The foundation helps youths by creating learning centers to help empower children to learn through new technologies, arts and media. Super rad dude and charitable?! We love Pharrell!

After the Grammys, the Canadian-style cap set Google aflame with searches and even inspired its own Twitter account called Pharrell’s Hat. The bidding for the $158 hat started at $200 -- and is now upwards of $15,000 and still growing.

Goodbye Bape - Hello Ed Hardy?

Nov 1, 2007 03:14 PM

We spotted Pharrell Williams (of the Neptunes) meeting up with Christian Audigier yesterday for a quick infusion of new fashions. Might Skateboard P be moving away from his long-championed Bapes to a new brand? If so, he's got his work cut out for him - after all, there's not a whole lot which rhymes with either "Audigier" or "Hardy"!
