Pharrell Williams has been on a whirlwind promo tour. His latest stop was “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday, where he served as a guest and musical performer. The Neptunes hitmaker discussed Kimmel’s cameo in the “Happy” video and getting a call from the King of Pop.
“He was eating popcorn in my ear,” said Pharrell of the late legend. “And that’s when I knew it was him.”
Pharrell didn’t get a chance to record with Michael, but they did take meetings. MJ’s manager said he wanted a song like Noreaga’s “Superthug” when Pharrell was thinking along the lines of “Rock With You.”
Pharrell and Jimmy also hit the streets of Hollywood to see which one of them could get the most twofies (selfies with two people) as possible with random pedestrians in 30 seconds.
Plus, he hit the outdoor stage to perform his latest G I R L single “Come Get It Bae.”
