(CelebNMusic247-News) Feminist Slam Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines For Rape Lyrics

Robin Thicke might finally be getting the shine he so rightfully deserves for his new single  “Blurred Lines,” but he’s also getting SLAMMED by a Feminist in LA, Lisa Huynh.

Apparently a Feminist is claiming that Thicke lyrics promote rape. And to make matters worse for the R&B crooner, he released an uncensored music video which was in your face and laced with loads of very blatant sexual references. Although Robin may be able to dubbed this his biggest hit so far, he will also be facing some new controversy over his lyrics.

Here’s the drop according to The Hollywood Reporter:

Blogger Lisa Huynh of Feminist in LA ranted in April, “Has anyone heard Robin Thicke’s new rape song? Basically, the majority of the song…has the R&B singer murmuring ‘I know you want it’ over and over into a girl’s ear. Call me a cynic, but that phrase does not exactly encompass the notion of consent in sexual activity.”

Critics, and offended listeners, have also pointed out his excessive NSFW use of near-naked models in the music video, released on YouTube in March, only to be banned from the site for obvious nudity. In the unrated version of the video, topless girls strut and dance around the three fully clothed performers — Thicke, producer Pharell, and rapper T.I. — as Thicke sings to them, “I know you want it.” The unrated Vevo video currently has less than 500,000 views, a far cry from the censored YouTube version, which has accumulated over 50 million views on Thicke’s channel and has received near universal fan acclaim.

Here are the “Blurred Lines” (feat. T.I. & Pharrell Williams) lyrics in question:

[Intro: Pharrell]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey[Verse 1: Robin Thicke]
If you can’t hear what I’m trying to say
If you can’t read from the same page
Maybe I’m going deaf, maybe I’m going blind
Maybe I’m out of my mind

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
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
Hey, hey, hey
You don’t need no papers
Hey, hey, hey
That man is not your maker

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
And that’s why I’m gon’ take a good girl
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
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Verse 2: Robin Thicke]
What do they make dreams for
When you got them jeans on
What do we need steam for
You the hottest bitch in this place
I feel so lucky
Hey, hey, hey
You wanna hug me
Hey, hey, hey
What rhymes with hug me?
Hey, hey, hey

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
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
Hey, hey, hey
You don’t need no papers
Hey, hey, hey
That man is not your maker
Hey, hey, hey

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
And that’s why I’m gon’ take a good girl
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
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I hate them lines
I know you want it
I hate them lines
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Verse 3: T.I.]
One thing I ask of you
Let me be the one you back that ass to
Yo, from Malibu, to Paribu
Yeah, had a bitch, but she ain’t bad as you
So hit me up when you passing through
I’ll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two
Swag on, even when you dress casual
I mean it’s not almost unbearable
Then, honey you’re not there when I’m
With my foresight bitch you pay me by
Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you
He don’t smack that ass and pull your hair like that
So I just watch and wait for you to salute
But you didn’t pick
Not many women can refuse this pimpin’
But I’m a nice guy, but you get it if you get with me

[Bridge: Robin Thicke]
Shake the vibe, get down, get up
Do it like it hurt, like it hurt
What you doing like word

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
Baby can you breathe? I got this from Jamaica
It always works for me Dakota to Decatur, uh huh
No more pretending
Hey, hey, hey
Cause now you winning
Hey, hey, hey
Here’s our beginning

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
I always wanted a good girl
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
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Outro: Pharrell]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

We understand that one woman is offened, but this is ridiculous! Like we’ve said before, too many people are just to hyper sensitive.

Although Lisa Huynh maybe upset and angered by the video and the lyrics she has a thing called choice and the choice is Stop watching the damn video and don’t listen to Robin Thicke if he bothers you! Press on Lisa press on!!!!!!!!!!

Do you agree with the song’s critics?
