Pharrell understands Blurred Lines after years of criticism

2 min read

Although he initially dismissed it as a ‘sensation search’, Pharrell Williams (46) now understands the criticism of his hit song Blurred Lines. The music producer says this in an interview with GQ.

“I realized that we live in a chauvinistic culture in this country, and I was not aware that my number was associated with it”
The 2013 song has received much criticism in recent years, particularly because of the phrase “I know you want it” that is used repeatedly and according to critics, refers too much to abuse.

Pharrell, who wrote the song together with Robin Thicke, says that he did not understand the comment earlier because he received a lot of positive feedback from women. “I was like: what they are talking about?” the musician said. “Many women love the song and the energy it gives them. And women sing such lyrics too, so what’s ‘abusive’ about that?”

Later he came to another insight. “I started to realize that there are men who use this kind of language to abuse women. And it doesn’t matter that I don’t behave that way, or how I feel about things. It’s about this affecting women, even though it is not the majority. I realized that we live in a chauvinistic culture in this country, and I was not aware that my number was associated with it. Now I understand that. “
