Pharrell Williams Rejects Collaboration With Timberlake

World Entertainment News Network reports that Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D. turned down a request by Justin Timberlake to collaborate with the *NSYNC star on his second solo album, blaming Jive Records. “Justin’s my boy. We got a lot of history together, we got Grammys off his album,” Pharrell said. “We’ll always be cool but his record label upset me so I’m not going to be on his next project. I told him not to worry – he could win more Grammys with his own solo work.”

Pharrell Q&A

RollingStone.com spoke with Pharrell Williams in a Q&A and asked The Neptunes star of all the people he’s collaborated with, who works the hardest in the studio. “The ones who are really successful work really hard,” he said. “Beyonce works hard. I appreciate that. Justin [Timberlake], Usher and Jay-Z work hard. They’re not in the studio to fu** around. We all have fun, but when it’s time for us to put our Jedi hats on, we put our Jedi hats on and battle it out with the creativity that exists in oblivion. We reach in and snatch it out and carve away until it’s right.”
