The Question By Oprah That Made Pharrell Cry


Well, it wasn’t exactly a question. But when P sat across from O and chatted about the success of “Happy,” the producer noted how the song was no longer his once fans began to upload their own videos dancing to the hit. Winfrey then showed clips of various YouTube tributes and the G I R L singer was in tears as the camera returned on him. The Year of Pharrell washed over him in that instant.

“Why am I crying on Oprah,” he asked while the host handed him a tissue.

We can’t help but be happy. Fast-forward to the 17:00 minute mark here to bear witness. Feel like a room without a roof.
