Hillary Clinton hasn’t even announced whether she’s going to run for president in 2016, but according to Pharrell she’s going to win.
In the April issue of GQ, the “Happy” singer and Arby-hat-wearing producer and rapper gave a rousing endorsement of the former Secretary of State and made his 2016 prediction clear.
“Let me tell you why she’s going to win,” he told GQ. “Everywhere you go in this country, you have red and blue. You got the Democrats; you got the Republicans. You got the Bloods; you got the Crips. You know what else is red and blue? Blood. Blood is blue in your body until air hits it, and then it turns red. That means there’s unity. There’s gonna be unity.”
Pharrell cited Clinton’s gender and pro-abortion stance as the determining factors for why he believes she’ll be the next president.
“So when you think about a night where there’s late-night talk-show hosts and it’s mostly women, that’s a different world. Right?,” he said. “A world where 75 percent of the prime ministers and the presidents were women: that’s a different world. That’s gonna happen, and it’s gonna happen when Hillary wins,” he added.
His explanation didn’t end there.
“Because you know what?” Pharrell continued. “No matter how staunch of a supporter you are of no-abortion, whatever you are: you’re a woman, and there’s no way in the world you’re going to vote for somebody that’s going to try to tell you what to do with your body. Hillary’s gonna win. Listen, I’m reaching out to her right now. She’s gonna win.”
Pharrell also noted Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama in his long-winded prediction.
“And it’s a two-for-one,” he said. “Bill is the coolest dude in the game, still plays saxophone, and every woman in the world wants him,” he said, adding, “Everybody laughed at me when I said Obama was going to win, but I knew what he represented. But I know what Hillary represents: She represents a woman in power, and she did great as the Secretary of State. She’s gonna win.”
So, what about the other guys on the field? Not a chance, Pharrell said.
“Who? The Tea Party guys? The guys with the n****r jokes in 2014?” he told GQ. “They’re all trying to learn how to do the Dougie. Please. While their daughters are all twerking.”
Pharrell had pretty bold statements about that too, which he says he learned from Miley Cyrus.
“Trust me: Miley tells me all the time,” he added. “All those little girls, all those girls with their Republican daddies, they’re twerkin’ somewhere listening to Jay Z and Beyoncé and doin’ the ‘Happy’ dance. And that’s black.”
So that’s that.
It might seem crazy, but according to Pharrell, it’s true.
