Pharrell Apologizes for Sporting a Native Headdress

by Jamilah King ShareThis | Print | Comment

Wednesday, June 4 2014, 11:52 AM EST Tags: Music, Native, Pharrell Williams


Pharell is known for making questionable decisions when it comes to headgear, but this time he’s gone too far. The musician sports a Native headdress on the cover of the latest edition of Elle UK.

For what it’s worth, Pharrell issued an apology this week through one of his representatives. “I respect and honor every kind of race, background and culture. I am genuinely sorry.”
He also claims Native American ancestry, according to a 2010 profile in Oprah Magazine
The young man whose name is derivative of his father’s (Pharaoh) and who says he has Native American and Egyptian heritages, introduced a new generation to the condition by naming his third album Seeing Sounds. He’s open about his synaesthesia, raising public awareness and adding his glamour to the gift.
This isn’t his first forray into Native headgear. Back in 2010, he rocked a military helmet sporting three red, white and blue featuers on it.

Let him cry to his white friends or something.

He was wrong, point blank. Native Americans didn't suffer through all that hell whites gave them and survive only to have their honorable attire be turned into hipster trinkets for ignorant people who think the ignoring of a problem is the solving of a problem. Sleepy

He looks part native to me. I honestly don't see the issue but I'm sure someone will be along to inform me of how ignorant I am.

Soon as I saw it, I knew it was coming
Didn't think he'd apologize though.

If he says he's part "native", then why is he apologizing? I'm confused.

Ok I'm not the only one.

If I wear some ankara fabric or decide to have a traditional Nigerian/Kenyan/Ghanaian/etc wedding...would I be wrong?
