Pharrell’s Controversial Album Cover

Pharrell’s Controversial Album Cover


When you look at this picture, what do you see? What do you think about the women in the photo? Is there something missing? For me, all I saw was Pharrell Williams. Now I did see the three women, but they are just props in this photo! Maybe it’s because he’s one of the greatest musical minds of all time, or he’s just so “Benjamin Button” cute, that I had to stay fixated on him and him ONLY. For others though, they saw a lack of color, a constant reminder that the standard of beauty is not Black. Now we all know the stereotype, Black men abandon Black women as the standard of beauty as soon they get the chance. But looking at this picture I don’t get that feeling. I don’t get the feeling I felt when I heard ASAP Rocky say that Black women shouldn’t wear red lipstick.
