Pharrell Loves Women, But Isn't A Womanizer

If you used the likes of "Blurred Lines" or "I'm A Slave 4 U" as a barometer for how Pharrell Williams views women, you'd probably be disappointed. It's easy to see his video with Robin Thicke and assume he's a chauvinist. But, as he highlights in his recent interview with The Guardian, Pharrell actually loves them. In fact, he thinks they have all the power in the world. In the interview, he explains that women could halt the economy if they didn't work. And, they're also responsible for keeping the human species going. Mainly, though, he anticipates they'll one day make up 75% of political leaders in the world. "That's going to happen, and I want to be on the right side of history when it does." Of course, he also added that ladies, through purchases of his music and love of his saucy looks, essentially keep him in business.
While he admits that some of his lyrics have been "perverse" in the past (we're looking at you, "Lapdance"), he also defends the stuff of "Blurred Lines." Pharrell told The Guardian, "It's just saying that there's blurred lines where a woman wants to do something, but she knows she shouldn't...I would never apologise for saying, 'He's not your maker, not your god.' In fact, a woman made him. A woman made me. Regardless of who you are, you came through those golden doors." And, "golden doors" is officially the most amazing euphemism we've ever heard for the birth canal.
Still, despite his history of less-than-feminist work, Pharrell has seemingly made a concerted effort to reinstate himself as a supporter of female empowerment. His new album is titled G I R L, and he even showed his support for International Women's Day yesterday on Twitter, reminding us "I love you all more than words can say." Yet, we have a feeling he'll keep trying to lyricize that sentiment anyway. (The Guardian)
