DeGeneres asked the singer/producer and “The Voice” judge to speak on who he thinks should be the next person in The White House, and he was quick to confirm that he’s all about Mrs. Clinton, saying that her “serious tone” was key to her success.
“It’s time for a woman to be in there,” Pharrell said. “Women think about things in a holistic way, it’s not so individual.”
He added, “I’m happy to be a man, but I love women. The thing is, if we had somebody looking after our country that thought about things as a whole, I just feel like it just would be different. Not that I don’t love our current president. I just feel like it’s Hillary time.”
DeGeneres agreed with Williams that it is “Hillary time”, saying: “I love Hillary, as you know.”

Meanwhile, Missy Elliot made an appearance on “The Voice” Monday night as Team Pharrell’s guest mentor, and, as Pharrell told E! News, he could hardly believe she accepted the gig when the show offered it to her.
“I think what’s more surprising than anything else is they let two Virginians [work together,]” the “Happy” singer said as he and Missy burst out laughing. “For me, this is huge because Missy is somebody that, we came up together and she just continued to trailblaze. The idea that she would accept to come on the show with us just means the world to me because we just get to show this Virginian camaraderie…This is major to me, in my life.”
Missy revealed. “It’s major to me, too,” she said. “This is my brother, this is family. We go back to…We [were] youngins, teenyboppers. [We’re] both from Virginia. I’m here and I’m enjoying myself.”
She added, “Pharrell has a compassion and he gets in there and makes the people start crying. They don’t even know what’s going on. He’ll be like, ‘Listen. Look at me,'” she said. “But they need that. Not having somebody just say ‘You suck,’ but saying, ‘This is what you need to do. You have it on you.’ Because we come from a different era where people wold tell you, ‘You suck.'”
