Pharrell Williams Brought To Tears By Oprah
The clip begins with Pharrell — in his hat of course — talking about how huge “Happy” became, and how blown away he was by the massive show of support and love. This prompts Oprah to show a clip of people from all over the world doing their versions of the “Happy” dance. Seeing how universally loved he and the song are, the longtime producer and singer is reduced to rubble.
With tears bursting out, Oprah decides to bring out his emotions even more — “You know, I was just thinking about your grandmother. I bet she didn’t even imagine that,” she says. Come on, Oprah! You already got the tears!
Noticing how emotional the interview has become, Pharrell jokes, “Why am I crying on Oprah?” But then he explains why the moment got him so choked up. “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,” Pharrell says, referring to the touching fan video.
What a heartwarming moment! Pharrell’s song really is a movement — and he’s clearly not taking it for granted, which just makes us like him that much more! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
