Pharrell Talks Masculinity & More in New GQ Interview.
For their latest issue, GQ tapped Pharrell Williams, who spoke candidly on masculinity’s evolution, as well as “spiritual warfare.”
“When it comes to having this conversation, I don’t necessarily know that the masculinity is new as much as the conversation is new. That’s number one,” he shared. “But I think this is a way that I can speak up at a time where we’re in the middle of a spiritual plight. A spiritual war. When people are online, they have their real identity; then they have, like, a nickname. Right?”
He continued, “It gives them this ability to be whoever they wanna be. That’s a spirit. Because they’re no longer defined by the physical—the responsibilities of being connected to all that is. Online your spirit is free to be whatever it wants to be. And what do you see online? Fuckin’ warfare.”
