That site looks like it's written for near-sighted fourth graders who read at a kindergardener's level, and Pharrell Williams sounds like the sort of person who'd make one of the site's regular readers look like a regular Einstein. How is this supposed to restore my faith in humanity? That furry-loving judge from yesterday does more along those lines than this guy.

Dude... I know it's early... but you sound like you need a hug.

/Barring that, try a double scotch on the rocks. That'll even things out.

I am feeling quite grouchy, but haven't yet found a satisfying link upon which I might release my venom. Maybe you're right. Maybe I'll go stalking around the halls looking for a hug. Or a loose bottle of scotch. Whichever comes first.

That wouldn't make her cry, she is used to the good stuff.

Madonna: (In fake British accent) But this is what I want!!!
Pharrell: No one likes your shiat anymore. Shut up and listen to me. And what he hell is with that fake British accent? You're from Detroit. You're over 50, shut up.
Madonna: Crying.
Pharrell: Nice.

Go to the capitol building, find Teddy's office. You should be able to get both there.

Weekends almost here.

I know it's early, but I'm going to hug a bottle of Scotch and cry to Madonna's music. Because it hurts, you see. Badly.

Blatant misuse of the Hero tag subby. That's a ten greenlight penalty and a "bad kitty" for you.

Did he show her this picture?
[image from music-videos.duncans.tv too old to be available]

It made me cry

/why god, why is she wearing that? I can smell the cod through my monitor

Let's take bets on how many posts it takes for the first self-important music snob to show up and post, "Who is Pharrell Williams?"
 
2008-06-12 11:06:22 AM  
Fer christ's sakes she was just menopausal and he told her that she wasn't connecting with today's youth and then she cried and he apologized and then they made up. Now it sounds as if there was more to it but I was there and this was really not a huge fight.

/doo doo do

"Rubbish?"

Apparently Madonna drove Pharrell to do that fake British accent affectation, so they're even.
 
2008-06-12 11:08:04 AM  
That article used a lot of big words.

No really, what size font was that?

Aww, this is cute. A middle schooler made a Wiki entry:

"Pharrell has a unique style which is admired by many. He has a range of many different looks yet he still manages to look amazing in all.He doesnt dress like everyone else but wears what he feels like wearing at that present moment in time regardless of what everyone else says 'is in'. He is a style icon in his own right even if he himself isn't ready to admit it. He rocks hoodies,his traid mark trucker hat and dunks yet he can also pull of tailored suits along with shirts and sweater vests."

Just hug a bottle of scotch; two birds with one stone and you won't feel any pain if you do it right.

No, just surprised her with a mirror.

I have more in common with Mr Williams than I realized. I also wear whatever I feel like wearing at the present moment in time.
 
2008-06-12 11:15:11 AM  
I was thinking about crying just trying to figure out what anyone involved was talking about. But then I realized that I didn't really care.

/Subby, there is no "Zero" tag, what you accidentally selected was the "Hero" tag. Huge difference.
 
2008-06-12 11:15:55 AM  
Yes this story must be true. We all know black guys from Virginia Beach use crazy slang like "rubbish" Especially when he's dissin a ho.

I'm not a music snob, but I'm pretty far out of the loop owing to being an old fart. So I ask you :WHO IS PHARREL WILLIAMS? Is he related to Will Pharrel, and if so, how? And what the hell is a "dunk"?

I think it went like this:

Take it off now girl, take it off
(I'm a master, baby wit'cha bra)
Take it off now girl, take it off
(I can help you slide those panties off)
Take it off now girl, take it off
(Damn, that bootie's so soft)
Take it off now girl, take it off
(It feels so good in my palms)
Dim the lights down baby, dim the lights
We gon' double your heart great form lady, just dim the lights
(...I'm a beat the pussy like you never ever felt before)

A dunk is what the youngsters call a "shoe" or "sneaker"

Now you've made me cry. Madonna and I were born on the same day.

///no one. OK, fine. Wahhh
///Where's that Scotch?

I cant say i like all his stuff but N.E.R.D has put a couple good songs over the years. Making madonna cry...heh not really a hero thing, now making her stop making music thats a hero tag.

I bet he cries

I recently read some babble from Madonna about how she's still trying to "find herself." "Finding yourself" is for upper-middle class college girls and it usally involves getting drunk in Europe for the summer. When a 50 year-old woman says it, it's just pathetic.

You can probably work her labia like a speed bag at this point.

Sort of. Dunks are a model of shoe that Nike first made in the 80's and are still popular with the hipsters that use the urban style plugin.

Eh, I'm almost sure she deserved it. Pharrell is a joke at anything but beat-making, though.
 
2008-06-12 11:32:23 AM  
Having met Pharrel several times in times past, he's a relatively nice guy. He'll shake your hand and talk with you about the music industry, even if you're some 18 year old asshole serving him popcorn at a movie theatre. Madonna must be a real coont to get him talking shiat.
 
2008-06-12 11:32:27 AM  
HERO tag maybe.
