"You shouldn't walk into a company and say, 'I'm gonna make this record.' They give you an advance then for the tenure of that, the entire time you're album's out, you're working to pay back that advance," explained Pharrell, who in March said that his cousin was killed by Virginia Beach police. "No one should own you. No one should own your actions. No one should own your creations but you."

Thoughts?
