Pharrell Discusses Giving Justin Timberlake Songs He Wrote For Michael Jackson

Super-producer Pharrell was the most recent guest on Steve Stoute’s “Tanning America” series via Huffington Post.

During his visit to the show, Pharrell opens up about how music he intended to write for Michael Jackson became major hits for Justin Timberlake:

“Funny story is, when we were working on it, Michael called …he just called me and he was eating popcorn in my ear over the phone, and he was like, “Oh, so you’re working with Justin, how’s it going?” I remember just thinking to myself, “Man, I wish Michael could hear these songs.” And later on, after those songs came out and they were really huge thanks to Justin’s talent and what he had to offer, I’ll never forget the day that me and Michael met up. And he sang me those songs, sounding like Justin. And he said, “You should’ve gave those songs to me.” And I’m like, “You know those were your songs.”

Vashtie Kola Plays ‘King’ For VIBE, Did She Take Beyonce’s Crown?

I’m a huge Vashtie Kola admirer, thus I am excited that VIBE Magazine chose her to model Fall’s best trends.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with her (she’s known to many as the ex-girlfriend of Pharrell), Vashtie is so much more than that: She’s a tastemaker, an innovator (Nike’s FIRST female designer), a renown director (with projects for Justin Bieber & Solange Knowles under her belt), a trendsetter, a socialite & in due time (I have no doubt), a mogul.

…She also caused a Twitter frenzy over the summer after calling out Beyonce for dubbing herself ‘King B.’

Anyway, check out the full spread below!
