Robin Thicke Thinks the ‘Blurred Lines’ Criticism Is Ridiculous

BBC 1 finally put the "is 'Blurred Lines' rapey?" question to Robin Thicke, and he answered firmly: "I can't dignify that with a response. That's ridiculous." He also explained once and for all what the song is about (at least to him): "blurring the line between men and women" and the "blurred lines between a good girl and a bad girl." And he said some stuff about how he didn't even want to release the naked version of the video, but his wife Paula Patton convinced him. Is that enough to make you forget the "degrading women is a pleasure" quote?
