Pharrell Williams Requests A Framed Picture Of Carl Sagan In His Rider

Pharrell Williams - singer, producer, hat enthusiast - has a rider for the green room at his concerts and appearances, like most famous musicians. Most of the items on there are fairly typical (think water, M&Ms, snacks), but during a recent appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' the host pointed out an odd detail on Pharrell's rider:

A framed photo of Carl Sagan.

Here's how Pharrell explained it:

“I think Cosmos is amazing, was amazing…it’s great. Carl had like an incredible way of reminding us of how insignificant we are but how significant this opportunity to live this life on this planet could be.”

Watch the interview above. 

Carl Sagan, of course, also wrote about the benefits of marijuana in an essay under the pseudonym 'Mr. X'.


Saying you work in cannabis is sure to raise some eyebrows. Some people might be curious, others might not take you seriously, and still others might ask how they can invest. These cannabis executives dish on the reactions they get when they say they work in the space, and how those reactions have evolved over the past 10 years.
