You can’t turn on the TV or open your laptop with seeing or hearing Pharrell. The man behind one of the biggest hits of the last few years (not to mention the tallest hats we’ve ever seen) recently sat down with Oprah Winfrey on her Oprah Prime show to reflect on his unprecedented 12 months, as well as his decorated 20-plus-year journey in music.

In a characteristically insightful and enlightening 40-minute interview, Skateboard P discussed the inspiration and recording process behind his mega hit “Happy,” his recent solo album, G I R L, and his marriage to Helen Lasichanh. Things get emotional around the 18-minute mark as P tears up when reflecting on how his music has impacted people and his late grandmother, who always envisioned him spreading positivity to the world.

With more talk about love, humility and how the Universe conspires to help people achieve their dreams, this is a must-watch.

Another show is in the books as the 2014 MTV Movie Awards broadcasted live on Sunday night. Hosted by Conan O’Brien, the show had a few highlights including presenter Rita Ora stripping down actor Zac Efron, who won “Best Shirtless Performance.” Starring in the upcoming film The Other Woman (Apr. 22), Cameron Diaz, Nicki Minaj, Kate Upton, and Leslie Mann aroused all the male viewers with their dirty talk as they presented “Best Male Performance” to Josh Hutcherson for his role in Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The night featured a tribute to the late Paul Walker, and honored Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg with the “Trailblazer Award” and “MTV Generation Award” respectively. “Best Movie” was awarded to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but the biggest moment no televised on-air involved Rihanna. Following her fiery performance of “The Monster” with Eminem, the pop star was spotted backstage with Drake, who quietly appeared to support RiRi before later heading to Coachella.

Only one episode into the fourth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones and I’m already fully obsessed. Last week ended with an incredible fight scene (all in the name of a good roasted chicken) and there were plenty of other new plotlines piled on. What will Tyrion do if his bitter incest-y sister hurts the love of his life, Shay? Speaking of incest, how come Cersei doesn’t want to give her brother Jaime the buns anymore? What’s one hand got to do with it?

Meanwhile, I joked during our live tweetalong that Jaime and Brienne of the strong jaw have great buddy cop chemistry. They’re the new Will and Grace of Kings Landing. Meanwhile, Sandor “The Hound” Clegane is turning into a peach. Last season, his obsession with Sansa Stark felt like old-man-in-the-teen-chatroom. But hopefully his teamwork with young Arya Stark is more protective and pure, like Turner and Hooch!

This Sunday, we’ll see the worst little shxt in Westeros, King Joffrey, get hitched to the savvy Margaery Tyrell…but I’m more looking forward to more tension and intrigue amongst the distrusting wedding guests.

Watch a preview clip of this Sunday’s episode, along with a HILARIOUS video of goats singing the Game of Throne‘s theme song, after the jump…

Yes. Goats.

Jimmy Kimmel returned with a special segment of “Lie Witness News” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night. Fresh off the announcement as host of this year’s ESPY Awards, Drake put his acting skills to the test on the streets of Hollywood in “I Witness News.”

Hiding under the disguise of a beard and wig, the Canadian rapper asked bystanders questions about his yet-to-happen hosting gig, airing a fake sextape on stage at Coachella, thoughts on his music, and more. One person interviewed turned out to be a fan by the name of Junius Parham-Marrero. After asking him to recite the lyrics to “Trophies,” Drake revealed himself to an excited Junius. The pair would later take photos backstage, including a video shoutout to Marrero’s younger sister.

The Late Show has found its new host. Following David Letterman’s retirement after an incredible 34 years last week, CBS has announced Stephen Colbert as the new face of The Late Show.

Colbert is expected be introduced next year, which will likely signal the end of his current political comedy show, The Colbert Report. It’ll also be interesting to meet the real Stephen Colbert, and not the actor-who-pokes-fun-at-politicians-to-make-Jon-Stewart-laugh. “Mr. Colbert, 49 years old, will retire the character he plays on his Comedy Central show and will be himself as the host of the CBS show,” says WSJ.

Colbert’s hiring comes with other changes in the late show world still fresh in the memory. Back in February, Jimmy Fallon succeeded Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show, while Seth Meyers took over from Fallon on Late Night.
