Thicko Blurs the Lines

  • Youtube

So Simon Cowell lookalike and possessor of worrying falsetto, Robin Thicke is officially breaking records with his single Blurred Lines. Yes, this inspirational ode to modern day sexual politics and lyrical rhapsody to the post feminist male outlook has officially become the fastest selling single of 2013, selling almost 400,000 copies in a fortnight. And 2013 also seems to be the year of Pharrell Williams who has been rinsing the charts with his inoffensive smoothness with 2 number one collaborations thus far.

Thicke has lived up to his name in awe inspiring fashion with such astonishing irony free lyrics as:

  • OK, now he was close
  • Tried to domesticate you
  • But you're an animal
  • Baby, it's in your nature
  • Just let me liberate you
  • You don't need no papers
  • That man is not your maker
  • And that's why I'm gon' take a

And just as he is striking a blow for female emancipation from the naughty man who tried to domesticate her (women need a man to liberate them apparently) – he follows up with the hard hitting:

  • I know you want it
  • I know you want it
  • I know you want it
  • You're a good girl
  • Can't let it get past me
  • You're far from plastic
  • Talk about getting blasted

Nice bassline though. And a pretty good groove it does have to be said. Very summertime indeed.

Meanwhile, back in ‘Grasping at Straws Land’- sorry – the celebrity pages of the tabloids, the big story is that while Thicko and Pharrell were on Graham Norton performing their single – performing, miming – who knows – they were joined on stage by international megastar Hayden Panettiere . Ahem. Apparently she’s in Nashville. Anyway – she got up on stage before gyrating self consciously in a ‘I learned how to do these moves but I’m not completely convinced’ kinda fashion, while Graham Norton looked on in pride at the impromptu superstar jams he’d helped foster.

It was just one of those really special moments
