Artist Creates Fembot That Dances To “Blurred Lines” And It’s Exactly As Creepy As You’d Expect

Hellllppppppp!
Artist-Creates-Fembot-That-Dances-To-'Blurred-Lines'-And-It's-Exactly-As-Creepy-As-You'd-Expect
It Speaks And Makes Eye Contact Too.

Artist Jordan Wolfson seemingly tapped into the deepest fears of my childhood when he created this dancing doll, which is currently on display at NYC’s David Zwirner Art Gallery. The thing that makes the fembot — which gyrates to a warped version of “Blurred Lines” – even more terrifying than the animatronic band members of the Rock-afire Explosion that frightened me in my youth is the fact that the creature makes eye contact and speaks to patrons (in Wolfon’s voice) about existential stuff. The mask and the pole coming out of its chest don’t exactly put me at ease either.  Keep reading »

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Announce That They’re Separating

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Announce That They’re Separating

Well, I can’t say I saw this one coming. After 10 years of marriage, and a relationship that stems back to when they were teenagers, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have announced their separation. The couple issued a joint statement to People magazine, saying, “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.” The pair seemed pretty enamored with each other, at least during public appearances, though I can’t help but wonder if Thicke’s sudden fame (thanks to the success of “Blurred Lines”) had an impact. Sigh. Another one bites the dust, I guess. [People]

University College London’s Student Union Bans “Blurred Lines”

blurred lines

“Blurred Lines” is, like, so three months ago. But that hasn’t stopped the student union at University College London (UCLU) from banning the song from playing at school events.

Like the University of Edinburgh — another college that banned the song along with five other UK schools — the student union at UCLU believes Robin Thicke’s catchy ditty glorifies date rape and thus isn’t appropriate for the school to play. Said Susana Antubam, a campus Woman’s Officer, “[The song is] a monstrosity of phrases rapists have been known to use against victims.” In fact, according to the BCC, a DJ had to apologize recently because he played  ”Blurred Lines” at the school’s Frat Party night event.

This is so sickening I can’t even make any jokes about Florida (and that’s saying something): a 40-year-old man was arrested for allegedly beating a minor relative for 40 minutes with a switch while he “played the Robin Thicke song ‘Blurred Lines,’ striking her with the switch to the beat of the music.” WHAT THE FUCK!  Steven Grady Fillingham also videotaped part of the beating and sent it via text message to his (now ex-) girlfriend, who handed the video to police and wisely broke up with him. Fillingham somehow only managed to be booked on three counts of cruelty towards a child, despite the fact he is accused of other physical and mental abuse, like other beatings with a belt, forcing the child to shovel dirt for 90 minutes before being allowed to go to bed at 1:30 a.m., and making her hold heavy weights as punishment for being “lazy.” The child reported received the “Blurred Lines” beating because she had skipped school. Fortunately, she has now been placed with her mother.

What the fuck is wrong with people?!? Sometimes I am seriously convinced that people should have to get a license in order to be a parent or guardian. [Uproxx via Pensacola News Journal and The Smoking Gun]

University Of Edinburgh Bans “Blurred Lines” From Campus

It was bound to happen sooner or later: a college banned “Blurred Lines” from campus for being too rapey-sounding.

The student union of  University of Edinburgh banned the Robin Thicke song as part of a policy called “End Rape Culture & Lad Banter On Campus,” which is seeking to make the campus safer sexually. Students apparently became aware of the song after it was played by a school DJ last weekend, who was instructed by a campus employee to “fade” the song. Keep reading »

Why did it take comedian Eliot Glazer playing Robin Thicke for me to realize how sleazy this guy looks? The gelled hair, the aviator sunglasses, the one-too-open-buttons shirt … I know that’s maybe not the point of this “Robin Thicke Talk Show” spoof, but I got some serious douchechills. [YouTube]
