Pharrell Williams, the recording artist who made a splash with such hits as “Happy,” was glad to talk about the story of his hat.
"I bought it five or six years ago," Williams told W Magazine.
"I went into the store World's End in London with my friend Ronnie Newhouse to buy a pair of boots for my wife. While we were there, Ronnie told me that the hat was designed by Vivienne Westwood and was championed by her then husband, Malcolm McLaren, who managed the Sex Pistols."
Williams lead an upbeat performance of his songs at the first ever iHeartRadio Music Awards. He also accepted the innovator award. Williams was nominated for an Oscar for Best Achievement in Music Written for a Motion Picture for the Original Song, “Happy," which was on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack.
Williams will also appear as a new judge on NBC’s The Voice next season, according to the Daily Mail. He and Gwen Stefani will replace Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.
