PHARRELL WILLIAMS @ ELVIS DURAN MORNING SHOW

Pharrell Williams



Pharrell Williams stopped by the Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show to talk about his recent massive success with hit song “Happy,” working with Miley Cyrus and the media’s skewed image of her, and his support of women’s rights. The producer turned solo artist was excited to be at Z100 Studios for the first time promoting his own music. Describing his visit as being a moment for him, he felt it was “a little awkward, a little weird, and a little new” to be interviewed as a solo artist. When talking about the message behind his album ‘GIRL, the music phenomenon said, “At the end of the day, I hope women hear this album and what is at the bottom of the pot is you understand my intention. I’m just saying thank you, you’ve been so good to me.” Pharrell’s album and new single “Come Get It Bae ft. Miley Cyrus” are available for download on iTunes.

ON VISITING Z100 AND ELVIS DURAN AND THE MORNING SHOW:



“New York is still the heart of America, in terms of the electricity, you know the energy, the coolest of the cool. It is what it is, and that’s why it’s a pleasure to be here. It’s one of the biggest, THE station in this country. As a producer, I know that because you guys lead the charge. People look to see what you guys are doing to see what to follow. As a producer, I’ve always been thankful to have my record played on this station but to be here as an artist, is a little awkward, a little weird, a little new. So, this is a moment for me.”



ON GETTING A HIT AS A SOLO ARTIST:



“You guys make my songs hit. I’ll tell you what comes first, the song. That’s like a really small part of it, but after the song, then there are the tastemakers, the connectors, and that’s you guys. The rest of picture, are the people who will download a song, or purchase a song, or share it or talk about it. These are all necessary variables for success that are not promised to you, so when they happen you should just appreciate it. I know that as a producer, because I’ve seen that a million times, so for me to experience it I never expected to feel this.”

RYAN LEWIS AND MOM TALK AIDS WITH ELVIS DURAN

Ryan Lewis With Mom On Elvis Duran




Multi-Grammy Award winning artist Ryan Lewis stopped by Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show to talk about the launch of the 30/30 Project. Julie Lewis, mother of Ryan and 30-year HIV Survivor, founded this campaign. The 30/30 Project seeks to bring healthcare facilities to communities impacted by HIV/AIDS, as well as offer compressive general healthcare. To celebrate the mark of surviving for 30 years with HIV, Julie, Ryan, and the 30/30 Project seek to build medical centers worldwide that will sustain for at least 30 years. The launch of the 30/30 Project also coincides with this week’s 30th anniversary announcing the discovery that the HIV virus leads to AIDS. During the interview this morning, Elvis donated $5,000.00 on behalf of the Morning Show.



When asked about the reasoning behind the project, Julie said, “I want to do something big. The 30/30 Project is that big idea. We believe that healthcare is a human right. We have the knowledge and we have the treatments. Life threatening diseases like HIV/AIDS can be managed. What people need is access.” For more information on The 30/30 Project, please visit www.3030project.org and www.indiegogo.com/projects/30-30-project, where incentive based donations are being accepted.



ON HIS MOTHER JULIE DISCOVERING SHE HAD HIV/AIDS IN 1990



“Ryan was two and my eldest child was six. We waited four years before we told our children, and at that point, being a high school teacher and having my status public at that point, I actually started speaking out and I did that for 10 years.”



ON RYANS MISSION WITH THE 30/30 PROJECT



“My mom has been working for an organization called Construction for Change for the last few years. It is basically a nonprofit that builds infrastructure – from schools to community centers, to medical centers. The 30/30 Project, hitting that 30-year mark that was not anticipated, not expected for our family. When she was diagnosed she was given three to five years to live. Now, living 30 years we wanted to do something to commemorate that.”



ON THE DIFFERENCE IN HEALTHCARE AND WHY CERTAIN AREAS NEED HELP THE MOST



“It’s access. All of these drugs exist to those who have HIV/AIDS today, it is a manageable disease if you can get access to medication but there is no access.”

IT'S 'GLEE' FOR ELVIS DURAN'S MORNING SHOW

Lea Michele On Elvis Duran




Lea Michele visited Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show to discuss her debut single “Cannonball”. The “Glee” star talked about her upcoming album Louder, the success of Glee, life after the death of boyfriend and “Glee” co-star Cory Monteith, and her upcoming book Brunette Ambition. Lea’s visit was the radio world premiere for her single. Her album is currently available for pre-order, and “Cannonball” can be downloaded on iTunes and Amazon.

To see pictures from Lea’s visit, click here.



On the Glee cast after the passing of Cory Monteith



“You know, a lot of people, really sort of you know were, concerned about us going back to work and wondering what that would be like. But at the end of the day, you know, we are a family and we did go through this together so to be there everyday and to have the support from each other is so important. And like I said, I’m just really grateful for them and what we do everyday we do in memory and we’re really proud of the work that we do for our fans and for our show. You know, what we created I don’t think anyone will every be able to do again with a show, that you know, came from such an interesting concept, you know Ryan Murphy is such a genius. I’m just really proud of it.”



On staying positive and looking forward



“I feel really thankful for the great people that I have in my life. To be able to continue to work and have things that I’m really proud of, I think that everything that I have been through, I have an opportunity right now to be a good role model and be a good sort of person. I have amazing fans that have really supported me in everything that I have done, so if I have the opportunity right now to be inspiring or encouraging for anyone – make something positive out of it.”


On Glee’s success



“It’s been really great. I think that Glee has really opened the doors to really bringing, you know, music into people’s homes and now whether it’s in other films or other shows, I’m really thankful for what we did. It’s, like I said, opened people up to music again and that I’m really, really proud of.” 



On the release date of her album



“March 4th. It’s my favorite day of the year. I love March 4th. For me, it means so much. You march forth in life. You have to. It just seems so positive to me… I didn’t pick the day, I had a day in my mind but I got an email and they were like ‘Oh, it’s going to come out March 4th’ and I was like ‘That is so meant to be’. It so, it just feels so right to me, so that’s sort of been the theme of everything right now: to march forth with such strength, so that’s what I’m trying to do.” 



On changing the album after Cory Monteith’s death



“When Cory passed away in July we sort of stopped and looked at the record and thought, ‘Well is there anything now that we want to change or add?’ It was so perfect the way it was. What I love so much about the album, with the exception of two songs he [Cory Monteith] heard every single song. He was like my biggest fan and critic and he loved every song! He would give me all of his notes and I took every one into consideration.”

LADY GAGA OPENS UP TO THE ELVIS DURAN SHOW

****
ON THE RADIO
WITH
Elvis Duran And The Z100 Morning Show
****



Lady Gaga On Elvis Duran




With over 50 million singles sold Lady Gaga is one of the purveyors of modern pop. Sitting down with “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” this morning after taking a year-long break following a hip injury, she said that when she is not on stage she does not feel alive.



On Canceling Her Born This Way Ball



She cancelled the US portion of her Born this Way Ball last year, and felt that she was letting down her fans when she made the announcement. “It wasn't until I felt pain onstage that I really knew I couldn't go on anymore, because I never feel pain on stage," she said.




On The Passion Behind Creating The New Album ARTPOP



With her first new album in two years titled ARTPOP, Gaga revealed that she believes more in this album than anything in the past five years.



Her rise to fame has not always been easy. When asked about breaking into the music business, she disclosed the industry at the time was oversaturated by male dominance. “It made me hard and it made me kind of vacant and insecure, and that's when I started to put on all the wigs and put on all the outfits because it was through transformation, that I was able to free myself from those insecurities.”



GAGA Discusses Her Fame Roller Coaster



Later on she said that fame is like a roller coaster, “…You can't think and you can't breathe and you don't have time to sleep.” Her secret – “You just have to go with it.”



On Reinventing Herself and Making Her Fans Happy



With her new single “Applause” released last week, Gaga once again reinvents herself. The music video for the single debuted yesterday on Good Morning America and she revealed that she loves changing to make everyone happy. Instead of becoming one icon, her excitement comes from the fact that she can be every icon instead of just one.


The Excitement Around The November 11th Release of Her Album ARTPOP


ARTPOP is due to be released on November 11, 2013. On the day of the album release Gaga will be hosting an Art Rave in New York City. What should her fans expect from the Art Rave? "When you arrive at the Art Rave, it will be a huge warehouse full of rooms where you can view all this artwork that we created together and then you can watch me live,” she said. The rave will be centered around her music and art, two things Gaga hopes to focus most on with this album.
