Robin Thicke Is A Mess, Admits He Didn’t Write ‘Blurred Lines’ And Claims He Was High 24/7
We are sure Robin Thicke cannot wait for 2015, because 2014 has not been kind to him. Or maybe he has not been kind to 2014? Either way, it’s obvious the 37-year-old singer needs to work on himself. As some of you may know, Thicke and Pharrell Williams are in the middle of a lawsuit with the children of Marvin Gaye.
They claim Thicke’s hit, “Blurred Lines” is a blatant rip-off of Gaye’s 1977 hit, Got To Give It Up. Well, here is where things get really interesting. The Hollywood Reporter has obtained Thicke’s deposition from April, and it contains some crazy claims by Robin.
The first shocker? Robin admits he did not help write the song. He gives all the credit to Pharrell.[more…]
“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.”
He blames the confusion on being incredibly high for most of his time in the studio.
“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.”
This obviously contradicts what he said during an interview with GQ last year. Where he talked about how he and Pharrell listened to Marvin Gaye’s hit for inspiration. He was asked about that interview during the deposition. He blames it all on Vicodin.
“With all due respect, I was high and drunk every time I did an interview last year. Every day, I woke up, I would take a Vicodin to start the day and then I would fill up a water bottle with vodka and drink it before and during my interviews.”
Robin claims he’s now off the painkillers, but still drinks heavily. Thicke’s legal team has responded to the comments obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. They released the following statement…
“Robin’s moment of personal vulnerability is being exploited in the hope of diverting attention from the obvious weakness of their legal claim.”
