A gentleman knows the value of hard work. If nothing else Mr Pharrell Williams has had an incredibly prolific month. Over the course of the past month we’ve seen Pharrell launch a new range of trainers for Adidas, he has unveiled his collaboration with a street artist, on a ballet film, about French riots. He has been involved in Snopp Dogg’s new material, with the rapper describing him as the ‘CEO’ of his new album and found time to pick up the CFDA Fashion icon award.
Most men would feel that’s more than enough work for one month. However Pharrell has pushed on, displaying stoically gentlemanly behaviour, after failing to defend a claim against his creative reputation. Pharrell picked himself up and came back the following week to address the United Nations on his international climate change campaign.
Hard working, gracious, persistent and stylish. A true modern gentleman.
