Pharrell Williams walked away with a handful of Grammys Sunday night, but no one was talking about his “Get Lucky” performance with Daft Punk or his funny acceptance speeches. Instead, it was his big, brown hat that got all the attention and Williams isn’t quite ready to dwell on that aspect of the night.
Memes with Williams’ hat went viral, with one Twitter user even creating an account for the hat. Arby’s really picked up on the hat’s resemblance to its logo, asking if they could have their hat back.
Williams had a hilarious reply, asking Arby’s, “Y'all tryna start a roast beef?”
Despite his jab at the restaurant chain, he told Access Hollywood that he hasn’t really had time to think about the Vivienne Westwood brown hat he wore.
“I’m just so busy being appreciative for being acknowledged by the Academy that like I haven’t really had a moment to just breathe and say, ‘OK, this is real,’ because this has just been such a shock,” he told the site. “It’s humbling.”
Williams said that Westwood would be the most shocked over the attention the hat received. “I think maybe Vivienne Westwood would be — maybe she would be shocked,” Williams told Access. “I don’t know. It’s her hat. It’s a Vivienne Westwood buffalo look.”
Williams won Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with Daft Punk for “Get Lucky.” He also took home Producer of the Year.
