Robin Thicke Says Blurred Lines Is Really About Paula Patton

Last year

Robin Thicke has tried to clear up the bad rep around his song Blurred Lines, saying that it isn’t as degrading to women as people think.

The singer has faced some bad press around the song, which of course hasn’t stopped it being one of the biggest tunes of 2013. The number one negative word used to describe it has been “rapey”.

Robin Thicke: "Justin Bieber Is A Talented And Sweet Kid"

Robin was quoted by GQ as saying, "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. I've always respected women'."

But after months of going along with that statement, he has attempted to clear it up and explained that the song was really about his wife Paula Patton and not about random girls.

He tells the BBC, "I don't think people got it. I wrote it about my wife... she's my good girl. And I know she wants it because we've been together for 20 years."

And Robin revealed that he was actually misquoted in the original article, because he was trying to do an Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy impersonation.

During an appearance on Oprah's Next Chapter he said, "Bad joke, it was like a bad comedian... (The reporter) didn't put it into any context that I was laughing my head off. I was doing a Ron Burgundy impersonation... I was literally joking with him. It had no context. (It was a) terrible joke...

"It was the third joke that I had said after I'd given him a real answer and I told him I had joked to my buddy, 'What if I'd said something like this...?'"

Are you still into Blurred Lines? Or have you totally moved on?
