Pharrell says that he would like to see a change to the status quo regarding the United States presidency.
“It’s time for a woman to be in there,” the rapper-singer-producer says during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Women think about things in a holistic way. It’s not so individual. I’m saying I’m happy to be a man, but I love women. The thing is, if we had somebody looking after our country that thought about things as a whole, I just feel like it just would be different. Not that I don’t love our current president. I just feel like it’s Hillary time.”
Hillary Clinton ran for president in 2008. She ended her campaign in June of that year and campaigned for Barack Obama in the fall. Obama won the general election and was named president November 4, 2008. He was elected to a second term in November 2012.
In April 2015, Clinton announced that she would be running for the 2016 presidency.
Pharrell says that Clinton’s serious side would help her be a good president.
“People are like, ‘Okay, we need a president that we can play Scrabble and Celebrity with,’ but that’s not who’s gonna solve your problems,” he says during his interview with Ellen. “You need someone that’s gonna take it [seriously].”
