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

Robin Thicke Says "Blurred Lines" Is A "Feminist Movement"
"It's actually a feminist movement in itself..."

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] Keep reading »

Rebecca Black Covers "We Can't Stop" By Miley Cyrus And, Crap, It Ain't Bad
I Can't Stop Obsessing About This Song

My ongoing obsession with Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” really doesn’t stop! The single, which celebrates twentysomething debauchery, has now been covered by Miss “Friday” herself, Rebecca Black. I somehow managed to evade hearing that curse of a song all the way through, despite the mania surrounding it, so maybe that’s why I was able to listen to her version of Miley’s song without a chip on my shoulder — because I like it. Like, it’s not bad at all. I’m not saying I want Rebecca Black to become a thing again, just giving credit where credit is due to mediocre YouTube wannabe pop stars. Also, who’s that dude with her? No idea.

"I'm a puppy, I can do what I want!"

I’ve been playing the latest Miley Cyrus song “We Can’t Stop” on repeat for weeks now and my dog Lucca is starting to get really, really annoyed. Luckily, her ears perked up when I put on this dog-inspired remake of the song by Maltey Cyrus called “We Can Bark.” Says Lucca: “This version is much better, Mom.” [The Pet Collective]

Justin Timberlake’s Explicit “Tunnel Vision” Music Video: Boobs, Boobs Everywhere

Justin Timberlake's Explicit "Tunnel Vision" Music Video: Boobs, Boobs Everywhere
Damn, Justin!

If conservative moms and diehard feminists thought Robin Thicke’s was sexist for featuring naked ladies prancing around on camera, wait until they get a load of Justin Timberlake’s NSFW music video for “Tunnel Vision.”

The racy clip, which dropped Wednesday, features the fully-clothed crooner belting out his third single off The 20/20 Experience while three topless females contort to the music, letting their uncensored breasts all hang out.

At one point, footage of Timberlake’s frequent collaborator Timbaland – who is also dressed for the duration of the near-seven minute clip — is super-imposed on the dancers’ bodies. Read more on Celebuzz…

Lucky for you, Amelia and I put together the perfect soundtrack for all your summer nights and days. Check it out after the jump!
