Robin Thicke Thinks Your “Blurred Lines” Criticism is Ridiculous

Robin Thicke is currently enjoying the biggest hit of his career and with that newfound attention comes heightened criticism.

Alan Thicke’s boy has been slammed for “Blurred Lines” and accused of penning lyrics that “seem to glamorize violence against women” and “appear to reinforce victim-blaming rape myths.” When asked about it during an interview with BBC’s Radio 1, Thicke said, “I can’t even dignify that with a response, that’s ridiculous.”

He then proceeded to give a response.

Thicke added, “I don’t want to be sleazy, I’m a gentleman, I’ve been in love with the same woman since I’ve been a teenager. I don’t want to do anything inappropriate.”

As for the meaning behind the lyrics, vanilla soul brother number one added, “For me it’s about blurring the lines between men and women and how much we’re the same. And the other side which is the blurred lines between a good girl and a bad girl, and even very good girls all have little bad sides to them.”

On why the butt naked version of the video was released instead of a more demure spin, “My initial response was I love the clothed version, I don’t think we should put out the naked version,” Thicke said. “And then I showed it to my wife and all of her girlfriends and they said ‘You have to put this out, this is so sexy and so cool.'”
