Robin Thicke Says He Lied About Writing “Blurred Lines” And Was Too High On Vicodin and Vodka To Actually Contribute Anything To The Song

NBC - Singer-songwriter Robin Thicke claimed during a court deposition released Monday that he’s been lying for a year about his role in writing the biggest hit of his career, “Blurred Lines.” Thicke says he was too high on Vicodin and Vodka to contribute anything to the 2013 song of summer, which was co-written by producer Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris, Jr.

The revelation was part of Thicke’s testimony as he defends himself in a lawsuit filed by Marvin Gaye’s estate alleging that “Blurred Lines” plagiarized Gaye’s 1977 “Got to Give It Up.” In depositions in Los Angeles federal court, Thicke admitted he took more credit for the hit song than he should have because he thought “it would help sell records.” Williams said he went along with it “because that’s what happens in Hollywood.”

When an attorney played a mash-up of both songs at the beginning of his deposition, Thicke begged him to stop:

“It’s so hard to listen to it. Major/minor clashing. Not same key. Oh, that’s hard. I would think my band was tone deaf…It’s impossible musically. I don’t know what musician can even listen to this while a major and minor are fighting each other…Mozart would be rolling in his grave right now.”

On idolizing Marvin Gaye: Thicke said he first heard Gaye’s music when he was eight years old and he loves it—just not as much as his own playlist. In fact, he said, “Got To Give It Up” ranks high, but only “after my own hundred songs.”

“I’ve been called the ‘white Marvin Gaye’ since I was, since I got started,” he said. “So I think I’ve embraced that, consider it an honor. And so sometimes if somebody is leading you into, you know, being compared to or connecting with Marvin Gaye, I might embellish.”

Thicke does not recall any statements he made during interviews during the biggest year of his career:

“I had a drug and alcohol problem for the year and I didn’t do a sober interview so I don’t recall many things that I said..I didn’t do a single interview last year without being high on both…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.

 

 

 

 

Poor Robin Thicke.  Guy really thought he had something going there for a little bit. The absolute smash hit of the summer.  Couldn’t turn a radio on without hearing his song in the first 2 minutes.  Smoking hot wife.  Popularity, album sales, all that good shit.   Now look at him.  Wife left him, last album sold like 60 copies (not exaggerating, I think it was literally 60), every feminist on the planet hates his guts for being a rape enabler, crippling booze and pills addiction.  And to top it off he had to flat out admit he didn’t even write the damn song in the first place and that it was all Pharrell.  Brutal hit to the self esteem.   Hey I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the guy who gave me Ratajkowski dancing naked on video but let’s just say things could be going better for him right now.

11 Thoughts On This Week In College Football

http%3A%2F%2Fbarstoolu.barstoolsports.com%2Frandom-thoughts%2F11-thoughts-on-this-week-in-college-football%2F
Sep 1610:00AM EST

WET-AND-EXCITED

 

- Sorry for anyone who started shadowing my picks this weekend. After a blistering 8-1 start, I got cocky and made 6 picks and ended up going 2-4 on them, although I will say for myself that if Hundley doesn’t go down when UCLA covers and I’m an even 3-3. I’ll try to do better next time. Let’s get to the actual football, as always the handle is @CharlieWisco

 

 

LinkMap_Mockup

 

 

- The biggest story of the week so far has been the SEC receiving 7 of the top 15 spots in the AP Poll, an unprecedented mark. Truth be told, it really should be 8 of the top 15 (Missouri is underrated at #18 and better than any of the 3 Pac-12 teams ahead of them). If you were hoping that Florida State’s national title last year was the end of the “SEC Era” in College Football, sorry.

-       I’m wondering if in the playoff era, the SEC is almost TOO good for their own good, as crazy as that sounds. Take Auburn’s schedule for instance, who ESPN’s Football Power Index has rated as the best team in the country: They still have to play LSU, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Georgia, and Alabama, all teams capable of beating anyone in the country any given Saturday, in less than a 2-month span. Could anyone conceivably survive that schedule unscathed? It’s looking increasingly likely that every team in the SEC will have one, maybe two losses, which means if Florida State, Oregon, and one of the two Big-12 teams (Baylor of Oklahoma) remain undefeated, the SEC will only be represented with one team in the playoff. Which is complete bullshit. The SEC West alone deserves two teams.

-       The SEC West is the best division in college football history this year, and it’s pretty inarguable. Yes you can make that statement three weeks into the season. Of the 7 teams, 5 of them either are or have a legitimate argument to be a Top-5 team in the country. Bielema’s Arkansas is starting to formulate and gain the identity of a pound-the-rock Big 10 team with SEC beef on the O-line that he’s been striving for. Mississippi State is respectable. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, this is why the playoff needs to be expanded. The SEC West alone should have two, possibly three teams compete for a National Championship (sidenote that I will probably write a full blog on later in the season, the playoff should be 6 teams, with the top-2 teams in the country receiving bye’s).

will-muschamp-assures-you

 

-       Last note on the SEC (I promise). Isn’t it funny how arbitrarily we decide how coaches keep or lose their jobs in high-profile college football gigs? While Florida was losing to Kentucky, the general consensus on twitter amongst the experts was “If Will Muschamp loses this game, he’s gone.” Coaches nowadays are more than just football coaches; they are directors and leaders of a multi-million and multi-faceted organization. And a blown call by a ref or a misstep by a 20-year old can decide whether that leader should lose his job or keep it. And I know Derek Mason is a first-year head coach and ostensibly a perfect fit for Vanderbilt given his background with Stanford, but if he loses to UMass and begins 0-3 including a blowout against Temple, he might be gone too. He’s lucky he coaches for Vanderbilt, cause most SEC fanbases wouldn’t call for him being fired as much as calling for him to be dragged out to the streets and shot given the product he’s been putting out on the field.

-       I know it doesn’t matter but it still makes no sense Oregon isn’t the #1 team in the country. No one has looked more dominant or more complete. Just wanted that noted.

MACtion-Hashtag_1-1024x532

 

 

-       The Big 10 continues to be awful as ever. For one, Virginia Tech (who beat Ohio State) losing to ECU didn’t help. The MAC, yes the MAC, has a better record against Power-5 conference teams than the Big 10 does. Can you hear that noise in the background? That’s the sound of Woody and Bo’s souls trying to figure out how to kill themselves even though they’re already dead.

-       Remember when Spags publicly called me an idiot and favorited all the trolls on twitter saying I have the sports knowledge of a 12-year old girl because I said USC was overrated and the Pac-12 was going to end up being top heavy? Then USC got blown out against BC, Stanford might be as “eh” as a lot of pundits predicted, and Oregon looks like the only contender in the conference? Good times.

-       Stating the obvious: The Baylor-Oklahoma game will be the most anticipated conference matchup the Big 12 has had in years. No other conference is it more clear who the Top 2 teams are. I can’t wait for that game.

-       A quick word on Penn State even though it’s old news. No, I don’t support repealing the sanctions placed on them, even though I know it’s “good” for the Big 10. What happened at Penn State was not only the most horrific sports scandal of all-time, it was the most sickening happening to ever occur on any campus since the Kent State shootings, and probably was worse than that. The purpose of the sanctions was to change the culture of Penn State and insure something like this would never, ever, ever, ever, ever happen again and crush the cultish idolatry that plagues college football. Penn State hiring James Franklin, a coach with a history of questionable actions during a RAPE CASE, their students chanting “Where’s the statue?” and the support the Paterno family receives from the Nittany Lion community despite their apathy towards Sandusky’s victims proves that culture has not changed at all. I don’t know what James Franklin did or didn’t do, but if anyone should have exercised caution and just stayed away from him, it was Penn State. But they didn’t. They chose a proven winner and Coach Of The Year candidate who can win them football games over appearances. Clearly nothing has changed in Happy Valley. I get you don’t want to punish the players who had nothing to do with it, but they had the option of leaving, and to be honest, a few dozen kids football careers isn’t that important compared to the atrocities committed. Shame on the NCAA (as usual).

-       I’m going all SEC with my picks this week. Auburn, Mizzou, and Texas A&M all cover. I like ‘em all enough for a parlay actually. Since this weekend will be relatively boring, next week I’m going to explain my bullet-proof system of how broke college kids can bet and not lose any money (seriously, there’s a system) since many of you have asked. Or just ask me on twitter @CharlieWisco

Rutgers Offers Official Apology For Fans Making Fun Of Penn State At Tailgates

Rutgers

 

On behalf of Rutgers University and the Athletic Department, we would like to apologize for the regrettable actions of a handful of Rutgers fans on Saturday that do not convey the message of good, competitive spirit that we look forward to having with our new Big Ten rival Penn State University.

Some of the signage and t-shirts that we have been made aware of were both inappropriate and offensive.

I have spoken with and apologized to the Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour and I would like to apologize equally to the Penn State University fans, as well as Rutgers fans that were subjected to this classless display that does not represent the ethos of our university, athletic department or fan base.

The two inappropriate pictures that appeared briefly on our Facebook page as part of a 200-picture montage were immediately removed when we were alerted to their content.

It is unfortunate that the actions of a few spoiled an otherwise historic and record-setting night that Rutgers fans provided for our first Big Ten football game.

Julie Hermann
Rutgers Athletic Director

 

 

Holy shit is this really what we’ve come to?  School ADs making official written apologies for fans making fun of the other team at tailgates?   Jesus, I guess I’m not surprised at all considering how pussified America and especially colleges in America have become, but come on.  This is what sports is all about.  Rivalries and trash talking and getting the competitive edge on and off the field.  Any good fan worth his salt knows you got to come equipped to chirp.    You search high and low for any type of ammo you can use against the other guys.  Sometimes you have to really dig and find something small like a player’s girlfriend’s phone number.   Sometimes the biggest most embarrassing and horrible scandal in sports history is staring you right in the face.  Just got to grab it and run with it.

 

Hey Julie you know a little something about inappropriate, offensive verbal abuse right?

Proud Dad Drops Profoundly Disturbing Comment On Daughter’s Sexy Facebook Photo

Older people are bad at the Internet, not really treading new ground with that revelation. But some sort of time-bending comment about how if you were 30 years younger you’d be sticking it to your own teenage daughter? Very bold move, huge step up from a bumper sticker about being proud of your daughter on honor roll. But that’s 2014 for you. We’re getting dumber every year while social media photos are all the rage and getting sluttier every minute. So you might as well get some satisfaction from your kid excelling at a field where so many people are out there putting in work. She may be getting Cs in school but as long as she’s showing off some solid Cs online better than her friends, a dad’s got to have something to brag about. Sounds like the Father of the Year award just got sealed up. Way to adapt, pops.

 

 

I have to point out that this may just be some genius next level parenting right here. Don’t want your daughter showing off her prominent pubis and jugs on social media? Just comment about how you’d totally stick it to her if you were her age, maybe throw something in one of those jizz emojis the kids use while you’re at it. Instant way to get her back on track. There’s a 30% chance it’d send her to a nunnery but at least she’s not flashing beef for Instagram hearts. In a world where a substantial amount of Internet content ends with us saying “Never have a daughter,” it seems like a play that’s worth the risk. More importantly, if this is the case, I really think this dad needs to ascend to some sort of leadership position immediately. Dad chess going on while everyone else is playing slutty daughter checkers.
