Pharrell Cries About ‘Happy’ Success on ‘Oprah Prime’


Pharrell Williams is so, well, happy about the success of “Happy,” it actually brings him to tears.

During an interview with Oprah Winfrey that will air on OWN this Friday, Aril 18, the host showed Pharrell a video montage of people all over the world dancing along to his infectious hit.

And the stunning visual of strangers coming together in Malawi, Germany, Slovakia, Portugal, Detroit, and more, hit Pharrell right in his heart. After the video ended, it was several long seconds before he was able to speak.

“Why am I crying on Oprah?” he joked when he got it together. “It’s overwhelming because I love what I do.”
