Pharrell Address Album Cover Controversy

Recently, people have neglected to pay attention to the music and they have been all up in arms because Pharrell didn’t put any minorities on the album cover for his newest album, G  I  R  L. Well, Pharrell has addresses the controversy below.

What really disappointed me is they jumped the gun, because the one I’m standing closest to is black. She’s a black girl from Wisconsin that I used to date over 10 or 12 years ago. That just must suck, man, for people to look at something and to assume they know what’s going on. And if they just bothered to listen to my album, they would know that my album was an ode to women, period. And the one thing that I’m trying to kill and trying to aid in changing is the crazy statuesque standard of you gotta be white, waif, and thin for you to be beautiful.”
