Pharrell Uses Concert As Opportunity To Make Important Stand For Women's Rights
Pharrell Williams has been outspoken about how much he supports women, and is using his platform as a popular musician to encourage his fans to feel the same way.
At an intimate gig in London on Tuesday night, he paused in between playing hits like "Happy" and "Blurred Lines" (perhaps ironically a song that's been derided by feminists) to voice his support for equal pay for women.
In front of approximately 600 fans at the Brooklyn Bowl London venue as part of MasterCard's Priceless Gigs series, Pharrell said:
In America, women make 77 cents for a man's dollar. Women need to be paid as much as men... On this planet women are slighted... There are men in here who appreciate women... you have to make it change... The year 2014 is the year everything changed... We gotta start changing some policies.
Pharrell also had a message for the ladies, encouraging them to support one another through this social change and other day-to-day activities.
It doesn't matter what clothes she wears or what car she drives, you gotta stop tearing each other down.
Classic Pharrell, proving that it's not only his hat collection that has style.
