Boston University Feminists Want Robin Thicke Concert Cancelled

robin-thicke-espn

It costs approximately $360,000 and one gold doubloon to attend NYU and we never got any sort of concert. Anyway, Boston University students are petitioning to have a Robin Thicke concert cancelled because he is a tool.  1,400 students have signed the petition by the Humanist Society at BU which states, “It is a dishonor to our feminist history to symbolically idolize Robin Thicke by allowing him to perform his misogynist music at our university,” and that Thicke’s hit song, “Blurred Lines,” “celebrates having sex with women against their will.” Read more on College Candy…

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]

“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.
