Pharrell Williams has confirmed speculation suggesting he named his son Rocket after a song by Sir Elton John.
The producer and musician is father to 5-year-old Rocket with wife Helen, and rumors suggested the youngster's middle name was "Man" in reference to Elton John's anthem "Rocket Man." He tells the BBC's Newsbeat, "I really respect Elton John's music. ... Contrary to popular belief, Rocket's middle name is not Man. But Elton John's 'Rocket Man' song was a part of it and also Stevie Wonder's 'Rocket Love.'"
