Thicke socks the students

Robin Thicke dismisses campuses who banned his song as ‘ridiculous’


When Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines became a worldwide No 1, it also became a talking point on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour after Edinburgh University started a UK-wide movement by banning it from their campuses.

Said to “glorify rape culture”, Edinburgh Students’ Union vice-president Kirsty Haigh went as far as to claim that the song “promotes an unhealthy attitude towards sex and consent”.


Thicke has finally responded and stated that the song has been entirely taken out of context. Of Blurred Lines, the singer added that he’d written it “to make us talk about what the relationship between men and women really is”.


In this case, it is the whingeing students, not Thicke, who are in the wrong. In a week when we’ll remember those who fell for our freedom, they ought to worry about something a little more important. Next!
