Pharrell's accessorizing game was on point throughout the entire award show
season last year - specifically because he kept wearing that Vivenne Westwood hat (in different colors) to nearly every red carpet.
While we don't blame him because he pulled it off like a pro, when ET's Nischelle Turner caught up with Pharrell and his former Voice co-star
/"Shine" collaborator Gwen Stefani, we had to know what his plans were to top his top-hat at this year's GRAMMYs.
"I don’t live my life to top anything," he said. "I think you should just live to enjoy yourself and dive deeper."
So, we're gathering that he probably hasn't come up with his GRAMMYs ensemble yet. But, that didn't stop the 41-year-old from hitting us with some real serious life stuff in the meantime.
"You dive deeper into what is your own personal legend and odyssey and where that takes you," he said, explaining what we believe to be his explanation for his personal style choices. "If you're open, then every moment is like completely a gift and the question is, what are you going to be with this moment right now?"
Pharrell's latest project is a collaboration with the beautiful Gwen. The two have been friends for years and have created a new song "Shine" for the upcoming film Paddington
, in theaters Jan. 16.
"The Weinstein Company called looking for a song and they liked 'Shine,'" Stefani said, admitting that she and Pharrell had initially recorded the song one way, but when they heard there was interest in the track for Paddington, they decided it needed to be different. "We went back in and re-did the whole thing."
Working on Paddington and previously on Despicable Me has given Pharrell a new outlook on all things animation.
"You don’t make animation for kids, you make animation for human beings," the "Happy" singer admitted, confessing that he's a huge cartoon fan. "There are grown-ups like myself who still watch Boomerang late at night… Huckleberry Hound, The Flinstones, and The Smurfs."
