Pharrell Predicts Hillary Clinton the Winner of the 2016 Presidential Election, is "Happy"
What you got under that hat, Pharrell? Could it be... an accurate prediction of the 2016 presidential election? In a new interview with GQ, the happiest dude in the music biz right now went off on why he thinks Hillary Clinton DEFINITELY has the 2016 race locked down, even though just yesterday Hills told a student at a conference at Arizona State University that she might not run, or she might, or she might not (Hillary Clinton, master of vagueness). But Pharrell seems certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that not only will Hillary run, but she'll crush any opposing candidate:
Let me tell you why Hillary's going to win. Everywhere you go in this country, you have red and blue. You got the Democrats; you got the Republicans. You got the Bloods; you got the Crips. Everything is red and blue in this country. You know what else is red and blue? Blood. Blood is blue in your body until air hits it, and then it turns red. That means there's unity. There's gonna be unity.
Okay... that wouldn't be my first choice of metaphor, but I appreciate Pharrell's optimism about the political climate hopefully changing for the better. He also went on to say that he thinks women will undoubtedly cast their vote for Hillary:
Because you know what? No matter how staunch of a supporter you are of no-abortion, whatever you are: You're a woman, and there's no way in the world you're going to vote for somebody that's going to try to tell you what to do with your body. When we are a country and we are a species that has had a martian Rover traveling up and down the crevices of this planet looking for water and ice, okay, and we've had a space station that's been orbiting our planet for sixteen years—but we still got legislation trying to tell women what to do with their bodies? Hillary's gonna win. Listen, I'm reaching out to her right now. She's gonna win.
I wish I could agree with Pharrell that all women would vote for a candidate, be it Hillary or another pro-choice candidate, that would grant them autonomy over their own bodies. It is astounding that in 2014 reproductive rights issues still drive elections, and Pharrell has hit a nerve there. Unfortunately, though, there are still many women that are anti-choice, and I don't know that Hillary would have the entirety of the female vote in 2016 (though she should, then, now, and forever).
BUT HOLD UP—Pharrell is reaching out to Hills!? I don't know if any presidential campaign could be as saturated with celebrity endorsements as Obama in 2008, but I would LOVE for Pharrell to make a "Happy" remix about the honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton. He had some nice words for Mr. Clinton, too: "Bill is the coolest dude in the game, still plays saxophone, and every woman in the world wants him." LOL. As inaccurate as the sentiment might be (not all women vote with their eyes!), Pharrell's got good intentions, and he's right in noting that the Clintons are an experienced power couple that could definitely sweep 2016. When did you become a pundit, Pharrell?!
