Pharrell Williams loves collaborating with other artists because he loves sharing the spotlight and wants to work with U2 and Oasis.
Pharrell Williams wants to work with U2 and Oasis because he loves sharing the spotlight.
The 'Happy' hitmaker - who says not getting the chance to work with Michael Jackson before he died is one of his biggest regrets - revealed he would love to work with the Irish rockers and the 'Live Forever' hitmakers, who split in 2009 due to fighting between brothers and bandmates Noel and Liam Gallagher.
He told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: ''I always wanted to work with Oasis and who wouldn't want to work with U2.
''I love sharing the spotlight. That's what it's for. It's like sunlight, right? It's not just for you and me. It's for everyone. There's room under the sun for everyone. I get a joy out of sharing the light.''
The prolific collaborator - who has worked with stars including Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Beyonce Knowles and Gwen Stefani - spoke of his sadness at never getting to work with the late King Of Pop.
He explained that, ''because we're provided with circumstances that we deduce the lessons that are there for us to learn, and you have to be grateful for those.''
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
