■ Pharrell Williams tells Beats 1 Radio show about his times meeting Michael Jackson.
"I met him two times," Williams says. "He comes in, he's tall, standing there, two beautiful women walk in, he kisses one. It's a moment!" Williams explains. "It ain't like no peck, it's a situation. [The women] look Brazilian, and I'm like, 'Wow!’ He's the king of catching you off guard."
The "Happy" singer says Jackson turned down the Pharrell had, but didn't realize they were actually meant for Justin Timberlake. "I don't think he realized that I was going to give those songs to Justin [Timberlake]," he said.
"So I’m in the studio with Justin, and they say, 'Got a call for you on line 1, it's Michael Jackson.' So I'm thinking it's one of my friends trying to be funny. And I heard someone eating popcorn in my ear, that's how I know that it's him. He's the king of control, I think he invented it! He's like, 'Hey, okay, you working with Justin? Ah that's really nice, okay cool, well you guys have a great session, tell Justin I said hello. And Justin was like, 'Who was that? Michael? Yeah he does that.'" [Billboard]
