Playing Pharrell Williams Meets His 'Spooky' Wax Figure

Pharrell Williams' wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in New York on April 1, and the GRAMMY winner admitted to having mixed feelings about being in the same room with the statue.

"I have to say, being here and standing anywhere near it is kind of spooky," Pharrell told ET.

Madame Tussauds studio artists spent four months toiling over photos and videos of Pharrell in order to present an accurate representation of the "Happy" singer. The figure features a Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat, similar to the famous headwear Pharrell debuted at the GRAMMYs in 2014 as well as the actual red leather jacket in which he performed in during the awards show.

"If you go back to GRAMMY 2014 and if you asked me that day: 'You going to do Madame Tussauds?' I'd be like, 'No, of course not,'" the music producer said.

Pharrell also addressed the buzz that he could be a good fit for NBC's upcoming live musical production, The Wiz.

"I'm just hearing this this morning," Pharrell said. "I don't know anything about that. What I know about The Wiz is it's one of those things that, in my culture, it's a pillar."

The Wiz, a retelling of The Wizard of Oz, first debuted in 1974 and was made into a movie starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell and Ted Ross in 1978. NBC announced on Monday that their live production will air Dec. 3.
