ANDY WARHOL: Hello?
WARHOL: Gosh, this is exciting. You know, every time I use my Walkman I play your cassette on it . . . How have you been?
”Everytime I use my Walkman, I play your cassette on it”…Yup Andy Warhol was bumping Michael on Walkman.
Fast forward 2003, Interview magazine arranges for Pharrell to get interviewed by Michael. NUTS. You read the full interview and you can tell by the way Pharrell was speak ing in this interview he was in awe. I would be to. Michael Jackson = The Greatest. I’ll let Khaled tell you….”belieeeeeeeeeeveeee that”. Below is an excerpt from the interview Michael had with Pharrell.
JACKSON: Okay. What would you say inspires you in your music? What is it that inspires you to create your music?
WILLIAMS: It’s a feeling. You treat the air as a canvas and the paint is the chords that come through your fingers, out of the keyboard. So when I’m playing, I’m sort of painting a feeling in the air. I know that might sound corny, but—
JACKSON: No. No, that’s a perfect analogy.
WILLIAMS: And when you know it’s done, you know it’s done. It’s like painting or sculpting. When you let it go it’s because you know that it’s finished. It’s completed. And vice versa—it tells you, “Hey, I’m not done.”
JACKSON: Yeah. And it refuses to let you sleep until it’s finished.
WILLIAMS: That’s right.
