Reporting Courtney E. Smith
Pharrell is a very busy man. Between his new role as a curator for eBay, acting as a judge on the Rihanna-produced Bravo fashion show Styled To Rock, which debuts tonight (Friday, October 25), and being the hottest producer in the world, it’s hard to imagine he’s got a free moment.
But there is someone he’s got time for: Beyoncé.
In an interview with Billboard, he gave some interesting insight into why her new album, which he says is “crazy,” has been so delayed. And it’s not what you might expect.
“Let me tell you what it is,” Pharrell said. “She’s very particular. She’s a Virgo. And she’s not going to put it out until it’s ready and feels like it’s right to her. She’s got a very specific taste.”
Apparently her hard work is paying off, because Pharrell reports that it’s blowing minds.
“I guess that’s the reason she’s Beyoncé. Her name is recognizable around the globe and that’s huge,” he said. “That comes from someone that has very particular taste. When you know what you want, you won’t stop until you get it. [Other people are hearing her album] and are like ‘Whoa!’ And she’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m almost done.’ And she’s the queen.”
No firm release date on Beyoncé’s album has been released yet, but the Beyhive is all ears.
