Pharrell Williams Says New Album is About Women in His Life

BRIT Awards 2014 - Arrivals

Pharrell Williams has opened up on his new album ‘G I R L’, saying that he is paying tribute to all of the women in his life. He wanted to thank them for all of the support he’s had over the years and believes women should be honored because they do so much for men:

 ”I instantly knew that the name of the album was called ‘G I R L’, and the reason why is because women and girls, for the most part, have just been so loyal to me and supported me. There is no breathing human being on this planet that did not benefit by a woman saying yes twice. Yes to make you, and yes to have you. Point-blank.”

Pharrell says that gender is a big subject matter that he tackles in the new album and says women have a lot of responsibility in the world:

 ”If women wanted to cripple the economy, all they gotta do is not go to work … if they wanted to end our species, cripple our species – seriously! Like, women can look out into space at all the stars and go, ‘You know what? I can actually end all the human life on this planet right now. All I gotta do is just say no.’ There’s a huge value placed on that – on something so simple like if all our talk-show hosts late at night all were women, that’s a very different world.”
