Pharrell Williams would be “happy” if equality was reached for all people.
The 41-year-old singer was promoting his album G I R L on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and talked about pay inequality between men and women.
“There is a lot of inequality with women and you know how that goes,” he said. “Everything from, you know…still to this day, what is it, 73 cents to a man’s dollar? Like what is that? The last I heard, this whole entire species can only come into existence through the portal in a woman’s body.”
Pharrell went on to question how we have made so many scientific discoveries, yet we haven’t figured out equality.
“We’re a species that has had a space station floating around the earth for over 20 years – we even have a rover on a surface of Mars – how can we be the same species that has legislators and legislations in a place that are telling women what they can and can’t do with their bodies?” He asked. “How is that possible?”
His belief of equality encompasses homosexuality as well and he lives by his motto “live and let live.”
“And when I saw equality – you may be surprised – I mean equality for everybody. Like, who are you telling who they can marry and who they can’t,” he said. “What is this? This is 2014.”
