Pharrell Defends His “Little Sister” Miley Cyrus Against Meanies In The Media!

Pharrell‘s reputation might’ve taken a hit when he offended the Native American community earlier this week, but he seems determined to make amends!

The 41-year-old Get Lucky singer went on the Z100 Morning Show Friday and, though he didn’t say anything about the Elle controversy, he did whisper sweet nothings into the microphone about working with Miley Cyrus on Come Get It Bae.

Not only did he say kind things about MileyBird, whom he goes so far as to call his little sister, but he had positive things to say about womankind in general!

He gushed:

├óΓé¼┼ôFirst of all, Miley is my little sister and I ride forever for her, that├óΓé¼Γäós number one. Number two, it├óΓé¼Γäós very easy to judge when you├óΓé¼Γäóre watching someone basically grow, grow up in front of the world… You know, she went straight from being Hannah Montana, to the very next thing I knew when I saw her and I met her, when everyone was still calling her Hannah Montana, I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£You guys haven├óΓé¼Γäót met her, you have no idea what├óΓé¼Γäós in there’… Anybody that├óΓé¼Γäós gone to her tour├óΓé¼┬ª Anyone who├óΓé¼Γäós seen her tour, you├óΓé¼Γäóre just getting a slice of who she is, just a slice of her creativity. She is not in a box. She├óΓé¼Γäós so much fun, she├óΓé¼Γäós so nice.├óΓé¼┬¥

What an incredibly supportive thing to say about his collaborator!

Pharrell in fact thinks we should start treating all women better. Explaining why he chose the title G I R L for his new album, he said:

“I thought let me give back to the demographic that has been supporting me since the very beginning over 20 years, and that├óΓé¼Γäós women. So I named my album ├óΓé¼╦£Girl├óΓé¼Γäó and I capitalized all the letters and I put two spaces in between each character because I wanted it to read differently in the text and I wanted people to ask me questions like this. The reason why is because, okay there├óΓé¼Γäós one side of me like, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, her eyes, her body, ooh her curves, oh her booty!├óΓé¼Γäó You know that, you know that of me. But what you don├óΓé¼Γäót know is the other side is, how much I appreciate and how much I listen to women over the years and their plight… Women don├óΓé¼Γäót make as much as men. I think it├óΓé¼Γäós like 77 cents to a man├óΓé¼Γäós dollar. That├óΓé¼Γäós wrong. That needs to change. So I promised myself that I would as much as I make no apologies for how I love women in every kind of way, I really do, there are some important issues that should be addressed and I├óΓé¼Γäóm going to use the platform that they have given me and this opportunity to talk about these things.”

Aww! That’s so sweet!

We just hope Miley is making more than 77 cents on Pharrell’s dollar for her work on Come Get It Bae, LOLz!!
