Phun Pharrell Phacts: Pharrell lost his virginity to a McDonalds co-worker - there are more.

Phun Pharrell Phacts: some of these are going to make you laugh, some will make you cry. Will.i.am's prospective law suit against Pharrell got us thinking outside of the box, so here we go.

Phact 1: Pharrell lost his virginity to a McDonalds co-worker

Like the legend of the McPhoenix Burger, Pharrell lost his virginity to a "28 or 29"-year-old co-worker at McDonalds. I don't know whether she was a keeper, but that's how he spelt it in an interview with Playboy.

Phact 2: Pharrell helps run an eco-friendly company which makes fabric from recycled plastic bottles

Phact 3: Pharrell wrote most of the songs on Justin Timberlake's album, Justified... For Michael Jackson.

Pharrell told the following story about the tracks he made for Michael Jackson, which eventually became Justin Timberlake's debut solo album Justified - it's great.

"Like, (Britney Spears') “I’m a Slave 4 U” was made for Janet Jackson. Justin Timberlake’s first album — all those songs, with the exception of “Like I Love You,” were songs I made for Michael Jackson. His manager didn’t like them. Somehow I think Michael didn’t like them either, though. Because when I finally met him, he sang all those songs back to me, and said, “Those songs should have been for me.” And he just laughed ... He just fell on the couch, and he was really tall — six-foot-something. Filled up the whole couch. And he fell, rolled on the floor, kicking like a kid, laughing. But he sang those songs to me and he sang them just like Justin. And then he sang “You Don’t Have to Call” to me, and what was so interesting was all of them had Michael bridges. Like on the bridge of “You Don’t Have to Call,” the way I’d written it, I was trying to capture what Michael had already done with Quincy Jones and Rod Temperton, in the late seventies, early eighties. He sang those songs to me. So he kinda knew, but at the time they just weren’t good enough. But they were songs for him."

Phact 4: Pharrell wants to work with Prince and Eminem
