Mario SorrentiLeave it to “Happy” artist Pharrell Williams to talk about what makes him happy — but this time around, with a interviewer a bit younger than usual.
The musician and producer sat down with seven-year-old Poppy Browne, for W magazine’s “Little W” video series, and told her not one, but five things that give him joy.
He says, “Number one: God or the universe. Number two: My family. Number three: My job. Making music.”
Pharrell continues, “Number four: People recognizing that empathy is the only way that we can move forward as a species. And number five: seeing other people happy.”
In addition, the Grammy winner tells Poppy what planet he would live on, besides Earth — that’s Mars — and his favorite song when he was seven.
“When I was a little boy, there was a song called ‘Planet Rock.’ It was like early rap music,” he says, adding, “I would sing it, but you wouldn’t recognize it.”
