iHeartRadio Awards make Pharrell cry

Pharrell is still full of tears of joy – even after that viral interview with Oprah Winfrey. The producer-rapper-singer was teary-eyed after he performed a medley of his hits at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and earned the innovator award for his contributions to music.

“All I did was write the songs and you guys did all the heavy lifting, all the hard work,” the 41-year-old told the crowd Thursday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Pharrell famously cried in an interview with Winfrey last month. She appeared in a video praising Pharrell’s talent.

Pharrell wasn’t the only star in happy mood: Rihanna was the night’s big winner, taking home four trophies including artist and song of the year for the slow tune, “Stay.”
