    I didn’t know Pharell did this, that’s cool to know.. Although the people like nicki minaj or lady gaga like Tokyo and Japan because it’s “trendy” and fashionable for many teens (their main public), so they just follow the trend, this has nothing to do with feeling and loving Japan like people like me, do.
