Singer Pharrell Williams has announced his support for same-sex marriage, saying “equality for everybody”.

Appearing in an interview with Ellen this week, the ‘Happy’ star said he thought equality should apply to “everybody”, and that he supports same-sex marriage.

He said: “And when I say equality – you may be surprised – I mean equality for everybody. Like, who are you telling who they can marry and who they can’t. What is this? This is 2014.”

Commenting on women’s inequalities, he said:”There is a lot of inequality with women and you know how that goes. Everything from, you know… still do this day, what is it, 73 cents to a man’s dollar? Like, what is that? The last I heard, this whole entire species can only come into existence through the portal in a woman’s body.

“We’re a species that has had a space station floating around earth for over 20 years – we even have a rover on a surface of Mars – how can we be the same species that has legislators and legislations in place that are telling women what they can and can’t do with their bodies. How is that possible?”
