Unfortunately Pharrell was not able to make it to the infamous Breakfast Club for an in-person interview, however he did call in to set the record straight on the controversy around his new album’s cover. In case you missed it, African American women led by journalist Dream Hampton, took to Twitter yesterday to complain about the lack of an African American woman on the cover of Pharrell’s album which is dedicated to all of the women around the world. Little did they know, one of the women on the cover is actually African American. Pharrell addresses the issue and talks about the overall message of the album which he hopes people will grasp when they check out the album on March 3rd if they have not already listened to the Itunes First Listen stream. Check out what Pharrell had to say about the issue below!
Well said, Pharrell.
