Video: Pharrell Interview w/ NY Times

Sitting with Pharrell Williams in a recording studio on Biscayne Boulevard proved to be a wonderfully unexpected ride. Instead of playing his latest beats, he was eager to talk art. After all, it is art that brought him to Miami during Art Basel Miami 2009. Inspired by military tanks, Williams created an impressive collection of chairs for Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, which invited the 35-year-old polyhyphenate to bring his ideas to life.

Williams has also created Artst Guild and Gallery, a Web platform that democratizes art and invites young minds to create, upload and share work. Simply put, it’s a place for creative individuals to gather online with no agenda other than meeting.

For our “Something Big Something Small” video series, Williams exposed something dear (and small) to him: his SpongeBob SquarePants socks. Few know that he’s been wearing them for two years and has ordered over four dozen pairs by now. “I just like being a kid,” he said with a grin. “I enjoy it, I don’t want to grow up.”

    The next morning, I went to the train station to pick her up. I had a sneaking suspicion that Julia might come with her. I was right. With Katya was Julia and Julia’s boyfriend Igor, who was a “ken doll” type with no brains, personality, or sense of humor, just a tall attractive look. (Only a guy like that would put up with Julia.) We went to the administration office in my hostel, and booked a hotel room for Katya and I. It was very nice and since our bedroom was adjoined to a living room with a fold out couch, Julia and Igor settled in as well. While we were hanging out, Katya hinted numerous times that she would have wild sex with me that night and that she was looking forward to it. Since things seemed to be going well so far, I didn’t feel the need to give her my ultimatum letter. It seemed out of context at the moment.

    When Julia and Igor left for a while to go back to Igor’s hostel (probably to screw or something), Katya and I were left alone. Katya took a bath and then came out and put her clothes on to get ready. As she put her makeup on, I was blown away by how hot it made her look. Ouch! She had a surreal starlet face! I wanted her badly now. Since I was in the mood, I asked if she could have sex now in the afternoon, since we were alone and it was a great time to do so. (earlier, she had sat on my lap when Julia was there, and I was turned on a lot after it) She said no because she was hungry, and that we would have sex tonight instead. She also said she couldn’t have sex on an empty stomach. I said it would only take 15 minutes, but she wouldn’t budge. How mean. So we went to the American restaurant, Doug and Marty’s, that we went to last time we were in Moscow. When we got there, she apologized to me for being so abrupt and abrasive along the way. I told her that it was something she needed to change in time.

    While we were there, we translated some messages between us through the waitstaff. They were embarrassing though, so I wrote them down and Katya took the notes to the waitstaff. One of the messages I translated to her was that I was still extremely disappointed about the situation a few weeks ago when she broke her promises for kissing and sex in exchange for presents I bought her. It sent me very bad signals in more ways than one, and I wanted an explanation for it. All she replied was that “Ok, do you want me to break our relationship then?” I wasn’t sure how to respond to that or why she said that, so I continued to push for an explanation for the horrific behavior a few weeks ago. I could not understand any of her answers, but I could tell she was trying to avoid dealing with this. So she just said that later on, we would go to an internet cafe where she would answer my questions through the translator program. I agreed, and then I asked if she wanted to break up or continue on, and she said she wanted to keep the relationship. Afterward, when we walked outside, we looked at the huge shopping center across the street, and she suggested going in for a walk. I said no way, maybe later if we go to the cinema in there (no way did I want to be pressured into buying things again).

    So we took the metro back to our hotel and when we got there, we were still alone, so I suggested having sex now since she no longer had an empty stomach. But she still refused, claiming now that Julia and Igor were about to come in ten minutes, and that she promised we’d have sex tonight instead. I didn’t understand why we couldn’t just have it now and then again tonight though (the ex-girlfriend that I lived with before would surely have agreed to that). Plus, if Julia and Igor really were coming over, I now felt a lot of regret that we used our precious private time together to go out and eat rather than satisfying our (or rather my) urges instead, which I haven’t had enough of so far in our relationship. What a waste of opportunity, and I despised Katya’s sense of judgment. Why couldn’t she be my ex-girlfriend who always used every opportunity we had to have sex? This sucked big time. What a waste. Julia and Igor didn’t even come in ten minutes. They took a lot longer, but Katya clearly was more interested in waiting for their return than in making any use of our private time together. I didn’t feel good about this at all.
