Robin Thicke's Record Label Didn't Like Blurred Lines After Their First Listen!

We're ready to rule that Robin Thicke has himself THE song of the summer with Blurred Lines.

It's been at #1 for 9 straight weeks and his album just hit the top spot on the charts as well!

But before the single became a hit, it almost became a casualty of the cutting room floor!

Because Robin's record company didn't even like it!

Umm do they not have two ears and a heart???

Luckily for the world and all who live on it, Blurred Lines WAS released and skyrocketed its way up the Hot 100 list. Robin remembers the initial reaction he got while previewing the song for his label last summer though. He recalled:

"The record company didn’t get it. They didn’t even pay for the video. They didn’t want to support it at all. I played it for the heads of the label, head of pop radio, and everybody just went, ‘Nice. Nice.’ Got no response; was kind of surprised by that. A few months later went back in, played it again like, ‘I think we have enough records here. I think we’ve got four or five really strong singles’ — or at least four or five options for singles."

So what changed the suits at Universal Interscope Records' minds?

It was that SEXXX-ZAY music video that Robin shot! Thicke explained:

“And as soon as the record company saw the video, they said, ‘This is a smash.’”

Well, ch-yeah! Those nekkid chickies could have turned any tune into a megahit! Robin could have just whistled the Oscar Meyer wiener song around those hotties and he still would have gone to #1!

LOLz!!!

We are SO glad Robin got his label to change their tune on Blurred Lines. We've been jamming out to it nonstop!!!

But how do you possibly follow up what has become the biggest song of your career? Robin already knows what his next move is! He shared what's on tap, saying:

"I want to get right in the studio. I want to make a country album, a Christmas album, a gospel album. I’m like finally! I’m ready to make four albums right now!"

HA! Sounds like he'll have some more convincing to do at the record company!

    Not my cup of tea, but the song is great and he killed on Colbert.

    A very few years ago this sexist rape friendly song would be looked down upon. The fact that it is now acceptable because of media control of this slippery moral slope, indicates that in a few more years it will be quite acceptable for women and submissive males to be led around on leashes.

    That's because it's a droll, simplistic song that easily worms it's way into the ears and brains of the youth of America that is so easily entertained by fluff and drivel and bimbos in plastic see-through outfits.

    Re: Ali – can't blame it all on the kids. Their mothers are embroiled in desperate housewives of Beverly Hills and trying to hold onto illusive youth. O, I blame it on the media. Flicker fushion of moving picture which tricks the eye into seeing a motion. The underlying flicker goes into the left brain placing it in an alpha state. Tests show the activity if that brain resembles then, what staring at a wall would register, while meanwhile, the right brain downloads like a computer, receiving information, all of it, fact or fiction, which the brain cannot distinguish from fiction or reality. Note, this us why they call television programs, programming. Edward Bernays, freuds nephew, acted as expert in unlocking the secrets of the mind into subliminally changing us from citizens to, consumers. Since then these processes have been refined, and we are kept as dumb animals, in exaggerated sexual states which induce us to look unrealisticly at one another, losing the 'humane' element in one another, so that we are 'controlled by the our handlers to ignore the conditions of the erosion of the quality of the world we live in.

    You know, you make me think of something that came up in my studies. You might google theodor adornay and the Beatles. There is an idea going around that he wrote their songs undercover in a 12 tonal melody (which your comment made me think of) that was born from the cult of Dionysus. That the Beatles were brought to the u.s. by the tavistock foundation, masters of mind control. You may not know it, but when the Beatles 'emerged' in the music scene, arriving in the u.s. they were not songwriters. They only had two songs they'd written themselves, so they suddenly got busy and developed an overnite talent. I read an interview in playboy that John said Paul was the one supplying melodies in the beginning. So I do think John knew, then.

    You know something else interesting, after the Beatles broke up, Paul and Linda mc cartney did a song video in which it appears the cult of Dionysus is in the audience, marveling. As you may or may not know, John got angry on the white album over Paul messing with the tracks, when played backwards, etc.

    It's the song of the summer? I still haven't heard it so it mustn't be that good.

    His singing is HORRIBLE; I guess with daddy's millions RIPPING-OFF all that money from people conned into buying that Tahiti Village Time Share SCAM in Las Vegas really paid off…

    I wonder if his Christmas, Gospel, and Country albums will be about rape too.

    "Umm do they not have two ears and a heart???" You've got to be kidding me, Perez. Considering the lyrics are about ripping a woman's a$$ during hard sex, it has little "heart" to it.

    This idiot is just copying Justin Timberbitch's career to a T. He's a loser and is sooooo desperate to be seen as cool. Him and his man-faced wife can both suck it.
