Pharrell Williams “Just Liked” Grammy Hat


CBSOne of the most talked about moments of Sunday’s Grammy Awards came from a certain fashion accessory that Pharrell Williams wore, which later became a trending topic on social media. Now, the hitmaker is explaining what prompted him to wear that massive tan hat.

“It’s Vivienne Westwood,” Pharrell said during a post-interview at the ceremony. “It’s a Buffalo hat. This gentleman by the name of Malcolm McLaren [designed it]. [He has a] huge history. And I just liked it.”

McLauren was a U.K. designer and former beau of Westwood’s. He’s also a legendary punk rock impresario, who gave the world the Sex Pistols.

Pharrell also responded to a tweet from the fast-food restaurant Arby’s, which read: “Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs.”  The Arby’s logo is a stylized cowboy hat.

As for winning Producer of the Year and Record of the Year for Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” Pharrell said, “[It’s] humbling man.  It’s pretty crazy, like I didn’t expect any of this.”
