This unfiltered emotional display only makes the most likable man in pop music more likable*. After watching a montage of fan-made videos to his No. 1 hit “Happy” during his interview on Oprah Prime, Pharrell wept (and wept). When the renaissance man finally pulled himself together, he explained, “It’s overwhelming, because it’s like 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.” Wow, superstar humility: whoever would have thought it were possible in this day and age? As for Oprah, she gets it. She really gets it.
“Why am I crying on ‘Oprah’?” P asked rhetorically, fighting its way through his tears.
