If you thought you'd heard the last of the great Miley Cyrus Robin Thicke Twerk Debacle of 2013, I'm sad to report that you were wrong. While Miley's maintaining her whacked out momentum appearing hither and yon to promote her new album (also her tongue), Robin can't seem to get past the VMAs. To be fair, if we'd been dressed like Beetlejuice and no one had asked for our tailor's number, we might still be talking about it too.
Robin's general take on the whole evening doesn't seem to have changed much. He's maintained from go that the world is making too much of a big deal out of the whole routine. I kind of agree. In fact, I think twerking as a term should become synonymous with beating a dead horse. Still, he made an unfortunate flub when he spoke with Oprah Winfrey about the event.
Robin could barely make eye contact with the talk show queen. He squirmed in his seat and said he'd been "too busy" singing to notice what was happening ... to his penis? Look, let's be real -- there's getting into a song while you're singing, and there's having a medical episode. If he didn't know what was happening, he should probably seek the attention of a doctor. Plus, this wasn't a spontaneous event. This was a rehearsed awards show. Dude is not an idiot. He knew.
So fine, he wants to play coy and say that Miley surprised him. That's shady and lame, but whatever -- his prerogative. Then he made a rookie mistake in his interview. He implied that he was Miley's victim. Uh, things that are a terrible idea: Claiming you are victim when you are not a victim TO OPRAH WINFREY. It's one thing to admit you messed up and you didn't think the routine was a big deal. It's another entirely to blame your collaborator who happens to be a young woman. Gross, Thicke. Just gross.
Do you think it was lame of Robin Thicke to put the blame on Miley?
