Pharrell Williams Cover’s GQ, Talks About Being Sensitive and Collaborating with T.I. and Big Sean


Pharrell Williams gets lucky with the February issue of GQ, celebrating the year’s most influential music makers in the game.  Pharrell Rocks a leather motorcycle jacket on the cover and sips tea while sitting in bed in a onesie.

The magazine follows the “man who never sleeps” around L.A.—from the mall to “The Voice” to the studio—and observes what it’s like to be a “relentless pop-culture machine.” During their ride alongs with P, he spoke candidly about some of his collaborators including T.I. and Big Sean. Check out a preview of his interview inside.


ON T.I.’S PAPERWORK: “I wasn’t happy about the T.I. situation. They did that record hoping for radio play, and they got nothing out of it…. Great, you got your No. 1 hip-hop song. But what does that do for your sales?”

ON A NEW RECORD HE DID FOR BIG SEAN: “It’s not what we talked about, man. But it’s haaaaard. It’s like ghost-of-Shaka-Zulu hard!”

ON WHY HE SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH WOMEN: “Women have a way of expressing themselves that I can relate to more honestly. I am a sensitive person, so I want to be with sensitive people.”

The issue, which also features interviews with Iggy Azalea and ILoveMakonnen, hits newsstands nationwide on Jan. 27.
