New Controversy Surounding Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ Song
Robin Thicke has possibly the hottest song of the year. It is number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and is one of the catchiest tunes I’ve heard in quite some time.
But here we go again, someone who works for the “Daily Beast” has claimed that it makes female music fans “uncomfortable” because the song contains lyrics which, in this persons opinion, suggests Robin Thicke is advocating rape.
Tricia Romano writes about the lyrics and the video (which had been banned due to nudity):
The nudity might be fine if the song was called, ‘Let’s All Have Some Fun,’ but it’s called ‘Blurred Lines,’ and the subject itself is enough to make some female music fans uncomfortable. The song is about how a girl really wants crazy wild sex but doesn’t say it — positing that age-old problem where men think no means yes into a catchy, hummable song.
While everyone can have a view on it, her claims that women are creeped out by the song, to me, is over the top. Just like mostly everything these days, so I guess the norm marches on
