Pharrell Looks Annoyed in Deposition Videos From the “Blurred Lines” Lawsuit

Hollywood Reporter

Depositions suck. It’s basically a meeting with the lawyers of a person who is suing, in which they ask a bunch of confusing questions in an attempt to get the accused to stumble up and admit fault, or vice versa. It can be a very long and very boring process for the person in the hot seat, but admittedly quite entertaining for those on the outside looking in. Video recently surfaced of Pharrell’s deposition in relation to the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit brought about by the family of Marvin Gaye earlier this year, and the Virginia super producer is anything but happy.

In the clips, obtained by Hollywood Reporter, Skateboard P is barraged with several questions related to his knowledge of music. At first, he offers up easy answers. But he becomes visually more uncomfortable as the queries continue. At one point, he repeats the answer, “I don’t feel comfortable” when asked about his ability to read music. Record this in your memory folks. This is probably the closest you are going to see Pharrell to getting angry ever in life.

This lawsuit ended in March when Pharrell and Robin Thicke were ordered to pay $7.3 million to the Gaye estate. A judge later denied the two artists’ attempts at a retrial.

Back in 2012, Lil Wayne sat through a deposition in relation to his lawsuit against Quincy “QDIII” Jones’ 2009 documentary, The Carter. Weezy’s videos were much more entertaining than Pharrell’s, however.
