Pharrell Williams x CBS Interview

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Happy” & Grateful. A HAPPY GUY is definitely the self-image Pharrell Williams projects through his music — an image that seems to be pretty much in line with the reality, as Anthony Mason will now show us: Most artists only dream of having a year as big as Pharrell Williams‘. He sang and co-wrote Daft Punk’s summer smash, “Get Lucky.” He produced and co-wrote Robin Thicke’s mega-hit, “Blurred Lines.”

But it was with his first solo Number One, “Happy,” that Pharrell Williams himself suddenly went stratospheric. “Does it feel any different having a huge hit with your name on it?” asked Mason. “It’s super weird,” he replied. “Because I’m used to being the guy standing next to the guy. I was happy being that guy! It’s weird.”

Named the top producer of the past decade by Billboard magazine, as one half of The Neptunes production team, Pharrell was behind hits for Nelly (“Hot In Herre“), Jay-Z (“I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)“), Justin Timberlake (“Rock Your Body“), and Britney Spears (“I’m A Slave 4 U“). “You’ve said that you were one of those kids who just didn’t fit into the box,” said Mason. “No. I just never even seen the box,” Pharrell said. “It’s like, what do you mean? What wall? What ceiling? What are you talking about. Hence the phrase ‘Room without a roof,’ you know? Limitless.”

Lately, everything he’s touched has turned to gold, including the head gear he wore the night he Eon Four Grammys: a mountain hat designed by Vivienne Westwood. “One of my managers says, ‘The hat has its own Twitter.’ What?!?’” What happened? As we slipped into a New York clothing shop called Fine and Dandy, Pharrell said even he doesn’t understand. “I can’t tell you why people fixated on Vivienne Westwood’s hat, ’cause it’s not mine, it’s hers, right?”
