Pharrell on 'Blurred Lines': 'Singing 'I know you want it' doesn't mean I'm going to rape you'

Hitmaker and producer Pharrell Williams has revealed that the controversy surrounding 'Blurred Lines' is out of control because there is nothing about that song that promotes or endorses rape.

During an interview with Channel 4's Krishnan Guru-Murthy, the superstar was asked about the track's line, 'I know you want it', and responded with an explanation that made a lot of sense and cancelled out the idea that it's 'sexually suggestive':

"Is it sexually suggestive when a car salesman says to a person who's trying to buy a car, 'I know you want it'? If I can tell you're hungry and I say, 'I know you want it', does that mean I'm going to rape you?"

He also confessed that he would love to see a female U.S. President in the future, adding: "What would that world be like? We do not know because we haven't given it a shot. We're too busy telling them what they can or can't do with their bodies."

Williams, meanwhile, has just added another date to his 'G I R L' tour for London and he will now perform at the O2 Arena on October 9 and 10. On September 9, he will play live at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester.
