/// Information Diet: Pharrell Williams

August 12, 2011  |  Media Week

What’s the first information you consume in the morning? I check through my mobile devices and respond to emails and text messages. I browse websites like The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The Economist, Miami Herald , and music and fashion trades. What do you read or watch or listen to at the breakfast table? Definitely CNN, American Morning . I also watch Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer later in the day. What occupies your mind in the car, on the subway, train, or bus? New ideas or thinking about the projects and music that I’m currently working on. And I listen to the radio—a lot of the classic stations, like Majic 102.7 [in Miami]. Are you a TV junkie or on an airtime-restricted diet? I’m super busy and I travel a lot, so I would say I’m on an airtime-restricted diet—that’s why quality media and curation matter to me. When you do watch TV, how do you do it—TV, laptop, or tablet? I’m usually working at the studio or running from meeting to meeting, so I use all three platforms regularly. When I watch TV, it’s usually cartoons like The Smurfs , SpongeBob SquarePants , or the Boomerang network, and any of the Discovery Channel properties. YouTube is also great, and I watch it all the time. But I filter it through different channels or friends’ recommendations. Before bed, do you bite into a novel, graze on Twitter, or fast until morning? I’m not on Twitter…yet.
