Pharrell: “Places & Spaces I’ve Been” Book Marc Signing.
Pharrell on what an icon is & interviewing Jay-Z:
“If you look at like a Jay-Z for example, the thing that tore most people down is what he put on his back & sort of made it make sense, & set an example for what adversity is meant to do in our lifetime. So, it was cool to interview him because he is a living manifestation of my view, that is essentially everything is mind over matter, & with the right determination & the right skill-set, there’s no reason why you can’t figure it out. Then you find your purpose, & that’s a guy who’s found his purpose.”
