When it comes to being Pharrell Williams things should be "Happy" all the time right? Well in a new interview as the producer, singer graces the front cover of the November issue of Ebony Magazine Williams will address a number of controversial things that have happened within this year, 2014. The Virgina native was chosen to be on the cover of the historic magazine, in honor of the annual Men's issue. During his one on one time with the magazine Pharrell discusses Ferguson, Missouri, and his love for black women, after being criticized for not having one single African-American female on his new album cover, G I R L, seen below. When it comes to choosing what the star wants, one must note that it is not Pharrell's job to represent and be the spokesperson of the black women cultual. During Pharrell's time of controversy he faced, the singer used the, "I have a black friend" card when he replied back to the critics that his wife and mother of his child is black, explaining that his album cover had nothing to do with whether or not he thinks black women are beautiful. In the new interview with Ebony Williams sets the record straight and says: "I love Black women," Williams explains. "If you don't think I love Black women, then you don't understand me." Pharrell continues, "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." That was a little bit of too much information... But when it comes to race, Pharrell says that he is very neutral about it, making less comments about it, but admits that the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, Mo. has affected him. "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." He adds, "When things like that happen, we need to be a united cell. We need connective tissue to be linked by spirit and spirituality." Pharrell, co-judge of The Voice continues, "For every individual who gets killed, someone should build a school or teach a child. We really need to balance things with positivity." Read more:
