I like that idea very much... "it's not the kite, it's the air". Beautiful!

"Are you okay with being the 'Happy' man?" Mason asked.

"I'm grateful."

"You're going to live with the '"Happy" Man' and the hat for a while. You're okay with that?"

"What else do I have any other business being but appreciative?" Pharrell responded. "It's not my doing."

"When you --"

"Does that annoy you that I keep saying that?"

"No, I just --"

"But you get why I say that, though?"

"I get why you say that," Mason said.

"The stars have to align."

"Absolutely."

"And the stars don't always align for everyone," said Pharrell.

"No, they don't. But they've aligned an awful lot for you. And that doesn't happen unless you have a talent."

"So then you would understand why I'm so thankful."

"I totally get why you're thankful. As an artist at some point you've probably tried to figure out what you do well."


"I think that's when you fail," Pharrell said. "When you start trying to figure out, like, what you're the best at, that's when you become delusional, 'cause you start to believe that. I'd rather just continue to ride that mule than to bet on a cocky horse."

"Are you afraid if you give yourself too much credit, it would all go away?"

"For sure," he said. "You see people spin out of control like that all the time. I mean, those are the most tragic stories, the most gifted people who start to believe it's really all them. It's not all you. It can't be all you. Just like you need air to fly a kite, it's not the kite. It's the air."

The video of him talking to Oprah and crying while seeing the videos from people all over the world dancing to his music kinda hit me in the feels.


Definitely a humble artist...which is refreshing these days.
