“Blurred Lines” is still running hot on my iPod shuffle after dominating as a major summer hit. Of course there’s the controversy about the lyrics being kind of “rapey,” but I honestly think that there are a lot of pop songs out there that transmit the rapey vibe to a much greater agree. I tried to hate the video, but Robin and the ice cream cone get me every damn time.
All along, Robin has alluded to how “Blurred Lines” was supposed to be making fun of three “old” dudes (that is, himself, Pharrell, and T.I.) standing on a porch yelling, “Hey hey hey!” at hot young things. A new wrinkle has appeared in the equation. We’ve already heard about how Robin and Paula Patton probably have an open marriage, and she doesn’t mind when he gropes young blondes and gets off on their young age. Now Robin reveals that “Blurred Lines” is actually about Paula:
“I don’t think people got it. I wrote ["Blurred Lines"] about my wife … she’s my good girl. And I know she wants it because we’ve been together for 20 years.”

These two are definitely freaky together. Dare I say their marriage sounds kind of hot? I couldn’t handle it, but hey (hey hey), if it makes them happy, and no one gets hurt…
