He appealing to the yts that fund his lifestyle.  For some reason, I'm not mad..He can have that.  I ain't buying his sh*t.  He shoulda just cashed his checks and dismissed or acknowledged he just trying to get paid. LOL

Pharrell Responds to G I R L Cover Backlash With ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Single Cover

Wed, Apr 23 2014 by Bitchie Staff Filed Under: Celebrities

And here you go ladies and gents. Marilyn Monroe is now a gorgeous black woman.

Earlier this year, Pharrell Wiliams caused an uproar after he released his G I R L album cover art, and was first blasted for not featuring a black girl on his cover, and later colorism when it was revealed that there was a black girl featured, but she was of a light complexion.

Yesterday, in an effort to bite back at the backlash, he released the cover art to his newest single “Marilyn Monroe,” replacing the blonde, iconic bombshell with a black woman.

This comes weeks after Pharrell revealed to Oprah that he was bothered by the backlash seeing as though a black girl was used, and somehow she wasn’t black enough:

I went on to explain that she is African-American and I used to date her and it must suck to be a black girl of that color because you’re being questioned if you’re black enough. Her dad is black, her mom is white. Here’s my thing. Why are we having this conversation? [...] See, this is what I didn’t want to happen because you make an issue about first I didn’t have no black girls on there. Then, it instantly turned into they’re not dark enough.

Since posting the cover to Twitter, Pharrell has received varied reactions from, “Look what angry #sheabuttertwitter made Pharrell do,” to “I see what you did there and it might be too late for that.”

Meanwhile, his dancer Khadija Shari, who’s featured on the cover, wrote:

Not even Marilyn Monroe Who Cleopatra? please Not even Joan of Arc That don’t mean nothin’ to me I just want a different girl” #MarilynMonroe #Different #GIRL #LookatGod #KhadijaShari #Dancer #Model #Artist #CoverGirl … (And they told me 7yrs ago, as a black girl, I wouldn’t work much in this town) | @pharrell You’re a Genius. I’m humbled. Thank You!

The lady is attractive.

If pharrel is about the new black, why did he feel pressure to change the cover to please the old black.....hhmmm Kay
