Robin Thicke Was High for ‘Blurred Lines’ Creation, No Longer Wants Credit
Now that he’s potentially in some legal trouble for his douchey rape anthem ‘Blurred Lines’, Robin Thicke is blaming everything on drugs and Pharrell Williams. The singer is mixed up in a lawsuit launched by Marvin Gaye’s family, who believe the creators of ‘Blurred Lines’ ripped off Marvin Gaye’s ‘Got to Give It Up’. Robin has now said in a new interview that he was high on Vicodin when the song was being created, and although he has a songwriter credit which entitles him to royalties, he’s now claiming that Pharrell wrote the whole thing himself. Thicke said:
“To be honest, that’s the only part where — I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted — I — I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit. So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was and I — because I didn’t want him — I wanted some credit for this big hit. But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.”
He also said under oath that he was “jealous” of Pharrell and forced the ‘Happy’ singer to give him some credit on the huge song:
“I was jealous and I wanted some of the credit … I tried to take credit for it later because [Williams] wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself and I was envious of that.”
So, he’s now trying to throw Pharrell under the bus since the s**t is hitting the fan in a big way. Drug problem or no drug problem, Robin Thicke is an awful douche.
