Pharrell is “Happy,” but he says he’s not a feminist.
“I’ve been asked, am I a feminist?” the singer and producer said during an interview with Channel 4 News in the United Kingdom. “I don’t think it’s possible for me to be that.”
When asked why, he responded plainly. “I’m a man. It makes sense up until a certain point. But what I do is, I do support feminists. There’s injustices; there are inequalities that need to be addressed.”
Here’s the thing, P: You can be a man and a feminist. And some of your ideas make it sound like that’s exactly what you are.
Take, for example, when he spoke in support of Hillary Clinton:
“I would love to see a woman run the country,” he said. “Historically, this world has been run by man. And what would a world be like if 75 percent our world leaders, our presidents and prime ministers, were female? What would that world be like? We don’t know, because we haven’t given it a shot. We’re too busy telling them what they can and can’t do with their bodies. Or, we’re too busy, you know, not allowing them to make the same amount of money that a man makes.”
