Jay Z is not a member of the Illuminati – Pharell

Singer and fashion designer Pharrell Williams leaves the Mercer Hotel in New York CityPharrell Williams says Jay-Z is “secretive” about his music, and never likes to let on too much about what his albums will be like before they are released.


The ‘Blurred Lines’ hitmaker dispelled rumours the rapper is a member of the Illuminati – a secretive group whom conspiracy theorists believe have power and influence over significant goings on in the western world – insisting he just keeps his affairs private.


He told German Newspaper Bild: “Everyone makes these jokes that Jay-Z is a member of the Illuminati. That’s not true! He’s just a very secretive person.”


The producer has been confirmed as a guest star – alongside Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland and Nas – on the track ‘BBC’ from Jay-Z’s latest album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’, but remained tight lipped as to what it will sound like.


He said: “We can’t say much about it, because [Jay] doesn’t like to reveal too much too soon. Otherwise the following happens: I say something, you interpret it in your own way and it builds up false expectation.


“That’s why he likes the music to speak for itself. All I can say is: the picture gives a clue to what will happen. There was big demand for it.”


Pharrell – who has produced hits for a sting of artists including Britney Spears, ODB, and Robin Thicke – was slightly star struck on his recent visit to Germany as he revealed: “I don’t know if it was a coincidence or fate, but yesterday I met Florian [Schneider] from [German electronic music band] Kraftwerk. That was amazing!”
