Pharrell Wants a Different Girl in ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Video
Subscribe to TheBoombox on
Pharrell Williams may be happy, but he wants a different girl in the new visual for ‘Marilyn Monroe,’ a song featured on his lauded album, ‘G I R L.’
With his chart-topping song ‘Happy’ still ever-present, the singer embraces the many women of the world in the clip. The heavily choreographed video (we see you Fatima Robinson) features Skateboard P popping in on some ladies in a rehearsal studio, grooving with them in a red, white and blue room and even looking for his lady love in an outer space-themed scene.
“She’s everything I want, and it’s crystal clear / Not even Marilyn Monroe / Queen Cleopatra please / Not even Joan of Arc / That don’t mean nothin’ to me / I just want a different girl,” he sings. Basically, none of those women compare to the girl who’s got his eye.
Look out for Pharrell’s famed hat (he dons one in red and another with some holes) and Kelly Osbourne, who pops up with a bow in hand to deliver her line on the track.
This week is a busy one for the Oscar-nominated star. On Thursday (April 24), he’ll also release his new book. The read will only be available on digital platforms.
Happy…just finished my new book. You can only read it online. I'll tweet the link on Thursday. Hope you enjoy.
