Offensive song, sexist artist, degrading video; lets talk about this. The title itself, when put in context, is enough to make a lot of women uncomfortable. Thicke is annoyed with all these 'blurred lines' of whether a girl will or won't give consent, wishing for a simpler world where all girls really want "crazy wild sex," but they won't say it. This poses yet again the age-old problem of men thinking no means yes - this time into a "catchy, hummable song". Just what we need! He makes this clear throughout both the song and video with the constant lyrical repetition of whispering "I know you want it" into a girl's ear (creepy, no?) along with such eloquent and flattering lyrics as "You the hottest b**** in this place" and "If you can't hear what I'm trying to say, if you can't read from the same page, maybe I'm going deaf" Nope! You're not going deaf Robin she just really doesn't want you. Must be hard to believe that she doesn't "want it" - a washed up mid-30's married-with-a-kid man who surrounds himself with naked young women in his music videos really seems like quite a catch. I'll admit it though the song is catchy, but it looks like we might not even be able to credit that to the lovely Robin Thicke. The family members of 60's R&B singer Marvin Gaye are suing Thicke for copying Gaye's hit "Got to Give It Up" right down to the cowbell. To top it off, in an interview with GQ he states "People say, "Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?" I'm like, "Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I've never gotten to do that before." Sorry Robin but now's not the time to stop respecting women, regardless of whether you've 'done it before' or not? Degrading women in your song/video doesn't make you edgy or 'making a statement' - the fact that you call degrading women a 'pleasure' frankly makes this reviewer sick.
What do you think of the song 'Blurred Lines'? Offensive? Ironic? Catchy? Irrelevant? Don't care? Let us know!
