Pharrell Gets Lost in a Sea of Pretty Women in "Marilyn Monroe" Video

We recently heard a more tender side of Pharrell in his Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack cut, “Here,” but today the singer returns to his “helpless romantic” ways in the colorful video for G I R L album opener, “Marilyn Monroe. Perhaps, paying mind to the criticism he faced for putting only light-skinned models on the album’s cover, this video features plenty of female models and dancers of nearly all colors—though, regrettably, we can’t say the same for shapes and sizes.  

And at the 3:10 mark, Kelly Osbourne, playing Cupid, struts along a rooftop to recite her “In honor of the groove” line. Bonus points if you can spot all the other cameos throughout the video.
