Pharrell Talks Grammy Hat & Performing for Beatles
January 28, 2014
People are still talking about Pharrell Williams' giant brown hat that basically stole Grammys red carpet show, and ET's Rob Marciano caught up with the hip-hop star to talk about his headline-grabbing head wear and to also gets his thoughts on performing for the two surviving Beatles during the taping of a tribute show to the rock legends.
On the red carpet before the taping of the CBS special The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles, Rob asked Pharrell if he could see any of The Beatles rocking his hat. "Sure, I could see John (Lennon) in his painted Rolls Royce... when he was going through his moment of Eastern religion. You know, that spiritual trek and journey that they went through -- I can see him doing that."
Pharrell -- who performed the iconic tune Here Comes the Sun with Brad Paisley in front of Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr -- was asked if he feels more spiritual with his now-famous vintage hat on. "No, I just feel spiritual being here right now, because I can't believe I'm here. This is unbelievable, all of this," he responded.
Brad praised his musical collaboration with Pharrell, but offered his own opinion of his red carpet topper. "It was sort of the cook look though. That cowboy hat was kinda the guy who would cook the beans for the rest of the guys out riding the range," he joked.

giving his thoughts on performing for two of his lifelong music idols.
The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles airs February 9 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
