Music producer Pharrell Williams is covering the November issue of the famed EBONY Magazine.
Touching on the subjects of racism to women, the superstar answers the questions that we’ve been asking for quite some time. One subject in particular that Pharrell tackles is the accusations of his bias against Black women. “I love Black women,” says Williams. “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.”
Pharrell also speaks that the public has been very vocal about is the apparent lack of support from celebrities throughout the drama surrounding the Michael Brown killing in Ferguson, Mo. Pharrell says: “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.” The hit maker then went on to state: “When things like that happen, we need to be a united cell. We need connective tissue to be linked by spirit and spirituality.”
