Moms love him.
I think he’s a wanker and a taint, but he’s not, like, Drake-level offensive to me. I do think he’s taking it on the chin pretty hard from the media, but I don’t think he cares. He should stick to acting though. Best thing he’s ever done imo has been Napster guy in The Social Network.
His new album really is the epitome of mom music.. Pharrell can be a great producer when he's willing to take risks, but when he's stuck in his comfort zone, his beats just sound like they are essentially meant to be played in pink smart cars.
