“I’m going to get in trouble for this, but I love the ‘Blurred Lines’ video,” Macklemore soloist Mary Lambert told Vulture last night from the VMA’s red carpet. “Sure, it’s gotten its flack, but it’s a fun video; I just think it’s fun. I’m a socially conscious singer-songwriter [Macklemore’s “Same Love” won Best Video With a Social Message later that night], and that’s really what I focus on. But sometimes you just want to dance and have fun, and it’s okay to just sort of let all political correctness go. I think it’s just an ability to separate yourself. We see that animals are killed and we still eat meat, because we kind of have to detach.” Keep in mind she said all this before watching the spectacle that was Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.
