Dope Or Nope? Pharrell Williams Dyes His Hair Green

Music producer and fashion designer Pharrell Williams recently dyed his hair green. Skateboard P who is also known for his outrageous outfits was spotted at the Lanvin’s Fall-Winter 2012-2013 Ready-To-Wear collection show during Paris Fashion Week in France. Skateboard P rocked his green hair-do with a Lanvin cotton and silk zip-up hoodie, a Jeanne Lanvin Tag screen print oversized tee-shirt, black leather shorts, and hiking boots from the Lanvin Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.

MTV News caught up with Pharrell Williams earlier this month, and he said that he is working on something ‘crazy’ with Jay. “We’re working on something, it’s crazy,” Skateboard P said after a long pause.

Pharrell also produced “Gotta Have It” to last year’s Watch the Throne album and also laid the beat for Jay’s Blue Ivy dedication, “Glory”. With things still in the works, Pharrell is reluctant to let go of any info. Instead, he’d rather just let Jay speak on things when he is ready. “Well, you know, he’s very discreet about details and stuff,” P said. “I’m just a filmmaker, musically. I let everybody else play the roles.”

Gotta Have It: Jay-Z And Pharrell Working On Something ‘Crazy’

Some rappers might want to push their albums back or hurry up and drop it because Jay-Z is returning to the scene. Last year, I reported that Jay-Z was in the studio with Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams and we might get another solo album from him and a second Throne album in 2012. MTV News caught up with Pharrell Williams earlier this month, and he said that he is working on something ‘crazy’ with Jay.

We’re working on something, it’s crazy,” Skateboard P said after a long pause.

Pharrell also produced “Gotta Have It” to last year’s Watch the Throne album and also laid the beat for Jay’s Blue Ivy dedication, “Glory.”

Music & Fashion: Pharrell Williams Speaks On His Boot Line, BBC Clothing For Women, Collab Album With Lupe Fisaco & Producing Jay-Z’s “Glory”

While driving to his studio in Miami, Grammy Award winning producer Pharrell Williams chatted with GQ magazine. In the short phone conversation, the talented music artist and fashionisto talked about his upcoming boot line, BBC clothing line for females, collaboration album with Lupe Fiasco and helping Jay-Z craft his daughter-dedicated cut “Glory.” Below are some excerpts:

You’re working on a new line of boots, right? 
Yeah. We’re working on some boots for BBC [Billionaire Boys Club]. But I can’t really talk about it.

Well, speaking of BBC, you’re releasing a women’s line soon, BGC, right? 
Yup! And it’s crazy!

Will there be much of a difference between the men’s and women’s line aside from sizing and maybe color schemes? 
Again, I can’t give it away. Somebody else will do it. [Laughs] But it’s definitely us. It’s signature us. It’s awesome.

You’ve started a lot of fashion trends over the years. Are you aware of the latest that folks are adopting slowly but surely? Style guys are feeling your plaid-shirt-around-the-waist-for-no-reason look. 
[Laughs] Uh, I guess I’m just having a ’90s grunge moment. And, like, is that the case? Is that what you’re seeing?

Are you working on any new music with N.E.R.D.?
Not so much the N.E.R.D., because I’m in producer mode. But I’m definitely in the studio producing shit, though.

Lupe Fiasco recently announced that you’re working on an album together? You two and Kanye West were working on a project once upon a time, too, your crazy schedules interfered. Think this one will pan out? 
I can’t talk about that. Lupe is my man and whatever we’re talking about we can’t really discuss and get into right now. We’re talking about some very interesting things.

Well, let’s talk about something that’s done and out now: Jay-Z’s “Glory.” You produced it. What did it mean to you to assist in making a song for Jay’s first born? It’s like rap’s “Isn’t She Lovely.”
Uh, that was awesome. But again, that was another covert operation.

Did you guys record that in the hours after his daughter was born or was it recorded in advance? Obviously, her first cries were added after she was born.
That was, uh… That was, um… Everything was by design. That’s all I’ll say.
