Pharrell's Headdress

UK ELLE July 2014
Pharrell is beauty in this photograph. I don't understand the hullabaloo about it being an affront to Native Americans. We have become, as a culture, so sensitive to so much that we have become insensitive. It would be one thing if the headdress were being decimated, but it isn't. In fact, I think that it honors what is essentially the very essence of America ... ingenuity, strength, creativity. And who's more American than Pharrell? He was a part of two of the biggest pop songs of the summer of 2013, and his 'Happy' is a unifying anthem that crosses geography, race, genre ... you name it. Come on.
