Popular rapper Pharrell Williams has been informed that a room missing its roof isn’t particularly happy, correcting his earlier confusion.

In an upbeat tune, Pharrell sang of how a room without a roof was compared to being happy, but he now understands this was a false analogy. A room missing its roof, such as following a structural collapse or particularly fierce weather phenomenon, is in fact the opposite of happy.

The residents of such a room would actually be quite upset by the whole situation.


In the misleading song, Pharrell sings:

Because I’m Happy

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof

However, Mr Williams has now had it explained to him the seriousness of a ‘room missing a roof’ situation. He has since apologised for failing to grasp how a room missing a roof isn’t something to be described as ‘happy’.

Mr Williams commented:

I am so sorry for any upset that was caused by my song. I now understand the error of my ways. I will rerecord the song lyrics and release a new version this week.

Pharrell is expected to release a new version of the song that goes as follows:

Because I’m Happy

Clap along if you feel like a room with a structurally sound and well-maintained roof.
