As a kid, Pharrell Williams fired from THREE different McDonald’s locations . Pharrell first revealed this on his MTV episode of ‘When I Was 17’, he then talked more about it with late night TV show host, Seth Meyers, late night show.
“I was lazy … I was very lazy,” Pharrell said.
“My manager would say ‘Williams, go mop the floor’!
“And I’d go out there, but the problem is I’d get caught up in the music … out in the dining area (of mcdonalds)… so the music would be playing and I’m like (dancing and singing to the music).
“At a certain point they realised that I was no help. I was only good at eating the chicken nuggets.”
McDonald’s paid Justin Timberlake, who sang the original ‘I’m Lovin’ It’, $6 million for the memorable “ba-da-ba-ba-bah” ascribed to “I’m Lovin’ It.”
