The top of the pop charts for 11 weeks and counting has been Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, but what is the meaning of this hit song?
The king of all media Howard Stern introduced his interview with the top pop music star of the Summer 2013 by stating his theory that the song Blurred lines is about trying to seduce a married woman. Two versions of the music video for the song have been released, a clean one they play on MTV/Much Music all the time, and another that’s available online and features topless women.
Robin Thicke says he’s been with his wife since they were young teenagers except for some time when they were in college they’ve been together. “So you guys don’t swing now or anything?” Howard Stern asks.
“We have a good time, we’ll leave it that way.” says Thicke.
“You’re open minded?” asks Stern.
“We’re open minded.” replies Thicke grinning.
“What the f*ck is going on in that house?” states Stern.
“Yeah really. Oh my goodness” chimes Stern co-host Robin Quivers.
Thicke goes on to mention something about his wife just flirting the idea or tease of bringing another woman into their bedroom is enough. He also said the lyrics in the song ‘She’s a good girl but she wants to be a bad girl’ are very much about his wife, who was good but he’s slowly turned her bad. Robin Thicke is married to Hollywood actress Paula Patton, featured in the summer time hit 2Guns:
The inspiration for the track is said to have been Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic, Fat Albert. The inspiration topic is important as it’s lead to lawsuits and counter-suits between the estate of Marvin Gaye and the Blurred Lines song collaborators, who are claiming they did not copy the composition of Gaye’s song Got To Give It Up.
