Pharrell Says Hillary Clinton Will Be President Is Ageless Feminist Time Lord

Pharrell, the ageless time lord with the supple Cetaphil skin, is not just a very “Happy” man but he loves women and not in that creepy way where cat-callers are like, “Yeah I love women. I love dem titties,” you know. Pharrell’s latest album G I R L is not only a homage to women who are beautiful and strong in and out, he actually prefers to work with women as collaborators, leaders, is totally pro-choice and wants a female President, namely Hillary Clint-dog. His company i am OTHER is totally run by women.

Our glow-y skinned fashionista told Pitchfork, “My wife is a direct inspiration, for sure, but when I decided to do the album, I instantly knew what the album was going to be a full-spectrum ode to all the women who have been so good to me in my career. Most of my company i am OTHER is run by women.”

He said of collaborating with women, “I prefer a woman’s way of dealing with things. There’s a certain sensitivity to what I want to express and how I want to express it, so that’s what I want around me. I’m not saying it’s doomed or impossible to work with men [in my business], but it’s not what I prefer.”

Then he went on this awesome rant to GQ about how we need to stop controlling women’s bodies, how the legacy of human history can’t be one that is oppressive to women and that Hillary Clinton is going to change the world.

“Let me tell you why Hillary’s going to win. Everywhere you go in this country, you have red and blue. You got the Democrats; you got the Republicans. You got the Bloods; you got the Crips. Everything is red and blue in this country. You know what else is red and blue? Blood. Blood is blue in your body until air hits it, and then it turns red. That means there’s unity. There’s gonna be unity. So when you think about a night where there’s late-night talk-show hosts and it’s mostly women, that’s a different world. Right? A world where seventy-five percent of the prime ministers and the presidents were women: That’s a different world. That’s gonna happen, and it’s gonna happen when Hillary wins. Because you know what? No matter how staunch of a supporter you are of no-abortion, whatever you are: You’re a woman, and there’s no way in the world you’re going to vote for somebody that’s going to try to tell you what to do with your body. When we are a country and we are a species that has had a martian Rover traveling up and down the crevices of this planet looking for water and ice, okay, and we’ve had a space station that’s been orbiting our planet for sixteen years — but we still got legislation trying to tell women what to do with their bodies? Hillary’s gonna win. Listen, I’m reaching out to her right now. She’s gonna win. […] . 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.”
