Now that his crotch has been christened by Miley’s melting ass, Robin Thicke can no longer stop. Moreover, he won’t stop.
After interpreting your panicked cries as mating calls, the singer apparently went ‘Welp, t*tties is what I’m famous for after a decade of actually giving a s**t about my art… so why the hell not?’
Robin covers the aptly named Treats and says some words you can’t read quietly to yourself over the sound of your own dry heaving. In short, the magazine buries the lede because it was the inspiration for the Blurred Lines video.
- On posing with unclothed women for the shoot: ‘I’ve done some topless photo shoots before but never completely n*de. It was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, ‘Okay, let’s just do topless’…but, again, my wife and her friends were like, ‘No way…go all the way.’ I think we definitely pushed the envelope.’
- On how Treats! inspired the video, not the other way around: ‘When I was talking to my wife [Paula Patton] and her friends about the video they said, ‘Do something like Treats! because you love it so much.’ And her friends were like, ‘Yes!’ We showed Treats! issue 3 with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover to the director [Diane Martel] and she said, ‘That’s our girl!’ And she was cast. I wanted to give homage where homage was due. We wanted to pay it all forward about our inspiration from Treats! for the Blurred Lines video.’
- On his racy video: ‘All three guys in the video are married and have children…it was all tongue-in-cheek… We wanted to put everything in that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, etc. In fact, after the video was banned on YouTube my wife tweeted, ‘Violence is ugly. Nudity is beautiful. And the ‘Blurred Lines’ video makes me wanna…’ We wanted it to be as silly and fun as possible.’
