Pharrell Covers GQ

Pharrell will grace the cover of GQ’s April issue and they have made the cover story by Zach Baron available for your perusal over at their site. He talks about the G I R L album and the uproar over the cover art, hats, both trucker and Vivienne Westwood, endorses Hillary for president in 2016 and comments on the twerk tendencies of the Tea Party’s daughters:

Are you reaching out to be like, “What can I do?”
I can’t say but so much, but Hillary’s gonna win. Trust me. And it’s a two-for-one: Bill is the coolest dude in the game, still plays saxophone, and every woman in the world wants him. It’s a two-for-one. Hillary’s gonna win. Everybody laughed at me when I said Obama was going to win, but I knew what he represented. But I know what Hillary represents: She represents a woman in power, and she did great as the Secretary of State. She’s gonna win.

If it’s the other guys—
Who? The Tea Party guys? The guys with the nigger jokes in 2014? They’re all trying to learn how to do the Dougie. Please. While their daughters are all twerking. Trust me: Miley tells me all the time. Not saying that about Billy Ray, but I’m saying Miley tells me all the time: All those little girls, all those girls with their Republican daddies, they’re twerkin’ somewhere listening to Jay Z and Beyoncé and doin’ the “Happy” dance. And that’s black.

    The GOAT

    At the table Pharrell suddenly breaks into song, singing his hook from Jay Z’s “So Ambitious”: The motivation for me, is them telling me what I could not be. Oh, well!
    Then he stops just as abruptly, and says again: “You know what I’m saying? Inject purpose. Inject purpose. Inject purpose.”

    The Goat

    When you say that it makes me reconsider your whole catalog before G I R L. It makes me wonder if all that music is itself unhappy.
    Yeah, but I didn’t know what happiness was. My definition of happiness was based on what my peers quantified as happiness: boats—you know, material stuff. But then I realized I had a platform; I would meet kids, and meet girls and women who would always point out the inspirational stuff. They would always talk about those songs. I’ll never forget: There was this girl that told me her brother had died, and he was a huge N.E.R.D. fan, and he got in a car crash. When they looked in the car, the song that was playing was “Run to the Sun.” That scarred me—in a healing way. Because “Run to the Sun” was huge for me with my grandmother. You know, you hear the intention in that.
