Believe it or not, but on Saturday, Pharrell celebrated his 41st birthday. He celebrated in epic fashion, returning to 30 Rockefeller for his first appearance on Saturday Night Live in eight years. Making up for last time, the superstar producer supported the release of his new LP G I R L with an impressive rendition of the chart-topping single “Happy”, accompanied by a live band and break dancers. Later, he crooned through “Marilyn Monroe” with the aid of a string orchestra directed by Hans Zimmer. He also participated in a sketch where he looked for a backing singer and yes, there was a joke about his hat. Watch the replay below.
