But his Nylon interview kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Why was he talking trash about Kanye?
Here's a little excerpt:
I ask Williams if he planned any of this. “No, I didn’t, I told you. There’s a difference between me and somebody like Kanye. He plans for it. I never do. It just happens. While I’m left feeling lucky, he’s left feeling like an architect [bizarrely, the word is used as a pejorative]. You understand? ’Cause he plans those things.”
(Williams seems to have something of a fixation on West. Three days later, at the photo shoot for this story, wearing a bow tie and shirt, he will put on a pair of white sunglasses from the accessories table and mimick West singing “Love Lockdown.”) “See, I’m the opposite of Kanye,” says Williams.”
a bit weird no?
When I showed the quote to LGF, he shrugged and went :
"Maybe that's why Pharrell's live shows suck and Ye's don't."
