In late March, Pharrell spoke out in support of Hillary Clinton's possible White House bid in 2016, saying the world will be different "when Hillary wins." He's now expanded a bit on those thoughts to the UK's Channel 4 in a new interview, where he discusses women leaders and gets in a heated discussion about sexism charges in, yes, "Blurred Lines."

"What would a world look like if 75% of our world leaders and prime ministers were female? We don't know because we haven't given it a shot," he said. "We're too busy to telling them what they can or cannot do with their bodies. Or we're too busy telling not allowing them to make the same amount of money a man makes. I'm not running for office, I'm not trying to be Mr. Activist guy."

But that doesn't make Pharrell a feminist or anything. "I'm a man," he bluntly said. "It makes sense up to a certain point. I do think there are injustices, inequalities that need to be addressed."
