Holy shit, this guy is an inspiring dude.
If you have not had a chance to watch the Pharrell interview on Oprah Prime yet, you gotta get on that stat. I can't think of the last time I was so inspired/touched/moved/blown away by someone as I was after watching Mr. P spill all his beans to Oprah. I was crying through like the entire thing.
Not to mention that this dude is responsible for creating like 80% of the music I've loved the hardest over the last 20 years. If you're not familiar with Pharrell's musical legacy: basically just think about any hit song you've loved from any artist (from Gwen Stefani, to Jay-Z to Britney Spears and everything in between) and then google that shit. There's like a 50/50 chance that Pharrell had *something* to do with it.
And yet he's so grounded and humble, and really just makes me want to go out into the world and do something great.
Best of all: he shared that his main relationship dealbreaker was always "does this chick love Tribe Called Quest?" If the answer was no, he said it was never gonna work.
Second best of all, he actually took the time out to call out some random chick on Instagram who was inspired by his latest album cover. She posed in a robe like the ladies on P's album cover and then basically got blasted with nasty, insensitive comments. Pharrell asked everyone to go onto Insta, follow her and shower her with positivity. I mean alja;lsfjlsjflsjflsdfjdsljf!!?? You should follow her too.
OH, and he said that one of his managers a few years ago suggested that he read The Alchemist and that it TOTALLY and completely changed his life.
Anyway, I was in love with this dude before, but my crush has now reached One Direction screaming 14-year-old levels.
