The only thing about Pharrell that is generating more buzz than his music is his head gear. Pharrell is gracing the July edition of ELLE UK and is rocking a massive Native American headdress. Unsurprisingly, the choice of headwear is drawing backlash on social media after Elle.com posted the quote, “We persuaded ELLE Style Award winner Pharrell to trade his Vivienne Westwood mountie hat fora a native American feather headdress in his best ever shoot [sic].”

Since the backlash, which includes a #NOThappy hashtag that is starting to make the rounds, ELLE has replaced the quote with, “Continuing our tradition of featuring cult male icons on collector’s edition covers we persuaded ELLE Style Award winner Pharrell to collaborate with us on his best ever shoot.”
