Pharrell Appears On ‘Ellen’, Speaks On Kim Burrell’s Homophobic Rant [Video]

Pharrell speaks and he was very stern about what he says.

The cat is finally out of the bag as Pharrell Williams spoke live with Ellen Degeneres on the most controversial topic of the week. In case you missed, Gospel Singer, Kim Burrell was caught on tape delivering a sermon at her home church and, during the recording the “I See Victory” singer of the movie soundtrack Hidden Figures went on a homophobic rant, condemning the gay community to hell; saying that they will die in 2017.

Many took their thoughts to social media like Janelle Monae, Octavia Spencer, Yolanda Adams, Frank Ocean‘s Mom, Katonya Breaux [who wanted Kim’s vocals removed from her son’s song], Pharrell himself and more.

Burrell blatantly said:

I came to tell you about sin. That sin nature… That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women… You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted. You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman’s breast, you are perverted.

Set to appear on The Ellen Show on Jan. 5 (today), Kim was scheduled to hit the stage with Williams but was then dropped off the show due to her statement, which is now being referred to as the “hate speech.”

Ellen said right before asking Pharrell on his thoughts:

“I didn’t feel like that was good of me to have her on the show to give her a platform after she’s saying things about me.”

While saying the above, Ellen had the straightest face possible as she meant everything single word of what was said.

Pharrell spoke on the issue at hand saying:

“There’s no space, there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017 or moving on. She’s a fantastic singer and I love her, just like I love everybody else. We all gotta get used to that. We all have to get used to everyone’s differences and understand that this is a big, gigantic, beautiful, colorful world, and it only works with inclusion and empathy. It only works that way.”

He continued saying:

“Whenever you hear some sort of hate speech and you feel like it doesn’t necessarily pertain to you because you may not have anything to do with that, all you gotta do is put the word black in that sentence, or put gay in that sentence, or put transgender in that sentence, or put white in that sentence, and all of a sudden, it starts to make sense to you. I’m telling you, the world is a beautiful place but it does not work without empathy and inclusion. God is love. This Universe is love and that’s the only way it will function. And I get it, that sometimes some of the divisive stuff works in life. We learned that lesson last year that sometimes divisiveness works, but you have to choose what side you’re on. I’m choosing empathy, I’m choosing inclusion, I’m choosing love for everybody just trying to lift everyone. Even when I disagree with someone, I’m wishing them the best and hoping for the best because we can’t win the other way.”

This is an unfortunate situation for Burrell as she is admired by many, especially in the mainstream music industry. But her rant affected many and it’s hard to say at this point how she will recover from the tragic end.

This embed is invalid

Now, normally we tend to tilt our heads, and squint our eyes at Kanye West‘s speeches or social media rants, and outbursts. But this time, The Life of Pablo rapper-producer-designer gives a clear understanding on what his intentions are behind what we would call: “his random moments”, when all he is simply just trying to do is “change the world”, he says.

“Michael Jackson and Russell Simmons is the reason why I was able to go so far in music.”

“I have to be Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break open doors.”

Recently, West had great conversation with Ellen Degeneres on The Ellen Show as they discussed Kim Kardashian, Kanye’s social antics, his reasoning behind just simply being real, how we’re in a Renaissance period, and that he was raised to make a difference. He even references a few classic lines from rapper Rakim, which Ye says he was raised on; including Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest, paired with overall Hip-Hop music, and expression.

But while in full convo, and watching a video about Ellen dancing on a previous show with an “animated Drizzy” sitting on her shoulder, Ellen then scared the crap out Drake as one of her prank-henchman popped out of a box next to his seat, donned in the exact outfit from the “Hotline Bling” visual.

Nicki Minaj Sits Down With Ellen DeGeneres Refers To Meek Mill As “Boy That Likes Her”

Nicki Minaj sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing today. Ellen wasted no time getting Nicki to discuss her love life immediately asking her where her engagement ring was. The 33-year-old rapper quickly shot down the rumors clearing up that the ring in question, given to her by her beau Meek Mill was not an engagement ring.

 

“I have two rings from this boy that likes me … and he said that that’s my second ring and that if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring.”

Nicki then went on to divulge that she might be retorting back to saying she’s single like she did in the past. She credits the negativity and the assumptions people make and throw their way as the reasoning.

“I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore. I think when people hear that they go to, like, the mean place. I used to say, ‘I’m not in a relationship’ even though I was in a 12-year relationship. And then now I feel like just going back to that and saying, ‘you know what? I’m single.’ “

Of course as soon as the world got word that Nicki said she was “single” social media went straight for Meek Mill’s mentions. Nicki of course wasn’t here for any of it and took to Instagram to set everyone straight.

As to whether or not wedding bells are in the near future for her and Meek the verdict is still out.

“I don’t know. We’re still figuring each other out.”

You can watch the clip of Nicki’s interview with Ellen below. Kudos to Nicki for rising above all the speculations, and negativity. It’s clear that her and Meek make each other really happy and that’s all the matters.
