Check out highlights from Pharrell’s interview below…
On race and Ferguson:
I don’t talk about race since it takes a very open mind to hear my view, because my view is the sky view. But I’m very troubled by what happened in Ferguson, Mo.
When things like that happen, we need to be a united cell. We need connective tissue to be linked by spirit and spirituality.
For every individual who gets killed, someone should build a school or teach a child. We really need to balance things with positivity.
On “new black”:
The “new black” doesn’t blame other races for our issues. The “new black” dreams and realizes that it’s not a pigmentation; it’s a mentality. And it’s either going to work for you, or it’s going to work against you. And you’ve got to pick the side you’re gonna be on.
On black women and G I R L cover:
I love Black women. If you don’t think I love Black women, then you don’t understand me.” He continues to add, “I have obsessed over Black women since the days of Jayne Kennedy, Beverly Peele and Roshumba Williams. Those are the women I daydreamed about growing up.
