In his chat with the TV legend for her show 'Oprah Prime', Pharrell was shown a video montage of fans dancing to his No.1 song ‘Happy’, and was all of a sudden overcome with emotion.
He told Oprah: “It’s overwhelming because 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, and feel... to feel that.”
Later in his interview, Pharrell also discussed his songwriting techniques, and revealed that a number of his hits were actually written in the shower.
He said: “When I have a really good gut feeling about something, it's written in the shower or on a plane. The water attracts your ear. You get distracted and your mind wanders.”
Since topping the charts at the beginning of 2014, the music video for ‘Happy’ - which features Pharrell and a host of other people, including some celebs making blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em appearances - has spawned a number of parody versions on YouTube.
