Robin Thicke Says “Blurred Lines” Is A “Feminist Movement”

Robin Thicke’s new album, Blurred Lines, is out today and to promote it, he performed on “The Today Show” this morning. When he was done makin’ it rain, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie asked him about the controversy surrounding the song “Blurred Lines”, namely that some critics think the lyrics are a bit, well, rapey. I happen to disagree — I love the song and think the lyrics are being misconstrued — but Robin Thicke really didn’t win any additional points with me with his asinine response to whether the song objectifies women. “…if you listen to the lyrics it says, ‘That man is not your maker.’ … It’s actually a feminist movement in itself. It’s saying that women and men are equals as animals and as power — you know, in power, and that we’re all supposed to just — it doesn’t matter whether you’re a good girl or a bad girl. You can still have a good time.” Yeah, yeah, that’s all fine and good, but “Blurred Lines” is a “feminist movement”? Thicke, please. [via Buzzfeed]
