ABC News tells us:
Pharrell23Pharrell Williams says everyone should be able to celebrate their joy — including Iranian youths who were arrested for posting an Internet video of them dancing to his song "Happy."
Some in Iran see the video as promoting the spread of Western culture. Iranian laws ban women from dancing in public or appearing outside with their heads uncovered.
Williams says he has "the utmost respect for people's religious views" and doesn't know much about Iranian law.

Speaking at an exhibit opening in Paris on Monday, he said, "They are just dancing."
