Just days after the premiere of his Daft Punk collaboration “Get Lucky,” Pharrell paid a visit to “The Angie Martinez Show” on Hot 97. The Neptunes hitmaker, who recently celebrated his 40th birthday, spoke about his secrets to looking young (He washes his face and uses Cetaphil), the success of “Get Lucky” and “Blurred Lines,” and getting married to fiancée Helen Lasichanh.
“Yeah, of course,” he says when asked about their plans to tie the knot.
He revealed that he has new music on the way from Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Kylie Minogue, Busta Rhymes, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, No Doubt, and Miley Cyrus, who he attests is a big hip-hop fan.
Read highlights from the interview below.
On how he stays looking youthful: “Naomi Campbell taught me a couple of tricks back in the day, just like washing your face with cold water, keeping your pours closed, just little stuff like that.”
On his changed lifestyle: “I’m a different guy in a sense that I’m not touching no other women besides my girl. I love my family. I’m super happy.”
On relationship advice: “I’m not a relationship expert, but I just recommend that you get with your bestie ’cause ya’ll agree on everything.”
On Jay-Z’s new music: “The Rain Man is back. I gave him a straight up Stanley Kubrick movie.”
On Miley Cyrus: “She can tell you everything about Waka Flocka. She can tell you when Gucci Mane came out. She means it ’cause she grew up in that. She grew up listening to that with all her friends. She’s showing you the signs that she’s a different girl.”
