Pharrell Wins Video Of The Year At BET Awards
The nominees for Video of the Year were Beyonce for “Drunk In Love” and “Partition,” Chris Brown for “Fine China” Drake for “Worst Behavior” and, of course, Pharrell Williams for “Happy!”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that “Happy” really has been the song of the year, and Pharrell made sure to thank his fans just for that, after he was introduced by Kerry Washington and Kevin Hart. “This song just became its own thing with the people…you turned it into a phenomenon,” he said. “This is the award that belongs to all the people.”
He thanked his mom, dad, son and wife, Helen Lasichanh — and he gave her a sweet kiss in the audience! He also thanked Missy Elliott for joining him on stage!
He was chewing gum on stage and apologized for being impolite, but we forgive you, Pharrell!
Pharrell Wins Another Awards
Not only did Pharrell win for Video of the Year, but he also won for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist!
When he took the stage to accept his other award he said, “I don’t know what else to say because this is all so shocking to me.” He was so overwhelmed that he took the attention off of himself and made the audience give a round of applause for Chris Brown’s performance earlier in the night, in addition to Justin Timberlake.
