Pharrell Williams isn't a fan of reality TV.

So it's more than a little surprising that the music guru is set to star as a mentor on one very soon.

"I like to refer to myself as a helper, because mentor just sounds weird." the producer told E! New's Alicia Quarles. "It feels so reality show, and that's not my thing."

So, who talked the singer into give a reality show a chance? Rihanna.

"She asked me to be a part of it. I love what she's doing I love what she represents," gushed the Billionaire Boys Club designer. Adding: "There's a relentlessness there and that, to me, is awesome!"

But the "Diamonds" singer aside, Pharrell had another reason he wanted to do the show. He shares that he wanted to form a relationship with the Style Network for possible future endeavors.

We can't wait to hear what those could be!

(E! and the Style Network are part of the NBCUniversal family.)

Tune into E! News at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. weekdays.
