Pharrell Talks Breaking Into Music On ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’

Here’s what’s most important: When Pharrell appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night in promotion of his book, Places and Spaces I’ve Been, he did not talk about what he’s been doing in the studio with Miley Cyrus and Tyler The Creator. He did, however, talk about his experience breaking into the music industry, and acted totally passe when Fallon showed a picture of Pharrell chilling with Jay-Z and Frank Ocean. Because that’s normal, or whatever.

Admittedly, Pharrell seemed fairly cagey in the interview, focusing the discussion squarely on his new book and a few odd stories — like the time when Diddy told him that he was destined to be a star. Also look out for Pharrell’s discussion of Diddy’s various names. It’s priceless. Watch the video up top.
