“It’s a profound love story, man,” Sean Combs told MTV News Wednesday night via phone from L.A. “It’s about this tumultuous love roller-coaster relationship that occurs. It’s everything from love, pain, sex, God, celebration. It’s a lot of things rolled into one. It’s a conceptual album. “One of the things I wanna give you that’s not out there yet is that it’s not me as a solo artist,” Diddy added. “It’s a group I put together; myself and two girls. Two young ladies, you may know them or you may not. It’s almost like some back-in-the-day Loose Ends-type sh–. We’re going to be telling the story of Last Train To Paris.”
“A movie is going to be shot to it too,” Diddy said. “It’s definitely going to be an album you can seamlessly see. Not after the fact. When you get the album on that day, September 22, you will be able to see the whole album on your computer. I go into production of the movie in May. Pharrell Williams also talked to MTV News about the project on Wednesday. “I thought it was sick,” he said of Diddy’s concept. “I think he’s a super-smart guy who knows where things are going. He told me, ‘Yo, just make me sick beats. I want them to dance; I want them to have a good time.’ … I was like, ‘Wow.’ For me, it was like making music for a movie.”
Alesha Dixon has revealed that she would love to team up with Pharrell Williams. The ‘Breathe Slow’ singer said that she would jump at the opportunity to collaborate with him if her record company would agree to the fee. “That would be really, really, cool, as long as he doesn’t charge too much money because he a quite expensive person to work with,” she told Key 103. “I definitely think the thought is there and I am sure when it comes to making the second record we will definitely think about it, because obviously we didn’t have any colabs on this album.” The star also claimed to be embarrassed after it emerged that she recently got a flight from Cannes with Coldplay singer Chris Martin on his private jet. “Oh I feel so tacky saying this, but yes he did. Oh god, he’s a really lovely guy and he did, myself and my manager, give us a lift back,” she said. “And I was really annoyed actually that it came out in the press, because for me personally it’s just not my style.”

Pharrell—he has a last name, Williams, but needs only to use his first to be recognized around the world—had already produced hit records for Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Kelis, Mystikal and Mase before he really even got started. As one half of The Neptunes, he went on to produce global smashes for Britney, Nelly, Snoop, Jay-Z, Gwen Stefani, Ludacris and Justin Timberlake; crank out a number one album under the moniker N.E.R.D.; and rack up a slew of Grammy nominations and awards. But he’s a man of many hats (as well as almost always appearing in one). In the musical arena, he has applied his touch to rock bands like The Hives and Maroon 5. He has wider interests as well with businesses such as his Billionaire Boys Club line and his Ice Cream fashion brand. And his Rock the Rabbit T-Shirt is badass.
PLAYBOY: You’re a style icon. How would you describe your current look?
PHARRELL: I go through cycles. Sometimes I want to wear things that are very loud. Now that everybody is wearing things that are loud, I kind of want to dress down more. Now it’s low-key but still cut to fit, not necessarily baggy, more form-fitting.
PLAYBOY: What designers are you into?
PHARRELL: Tom Ford is the king right now. Everything from his suits to his glasses. I like his glasses so much I went and put clear lenses in them.
PLAYBOY: What are your must-haves while you’re on the road?
PHARRELL: All my hardware so I can make music on the bus. I’m not a big porn guy, but I’ve been finding myself watching them recently. I’m thinking about collecting 1960s and 1970s porn—the music’s going to be right, all the tits are going to be real and there’s muff.
PLAYBOY: Do you play video games on the bus?
PHARRELL: They dominate the living room of the tour bus—Madden and all that—but I suck at video games.
PLAYBOY: What’s your go-to bedroom music?
PHARRELL: Something orchestral. Naturally you have a tendency to zone out and think—string-heavy music is good for provoking thought. I wouldn’t listen to Prince or a Vanity 6 record while having sex with my girl. I also like the rhythms of sex itself. I should make a beat from sampling sex sounds!
Thanks To Marsguo.
