Robin Thicke Reveals Who the Good Girl in 'Blurred Lines' Is -- How Sweet?

Say What!? 20

Remember when you dated that hot musician guy and you were always reading into his songs, wondering what his lyrics really meant and whether any of them were about you? And then you found out the loveliest of songs was about his dead dog. Well, imagine how Paula Patton felt when hubby Robin Thicke played "Blurred Lines" for her for the first time and revealed what we all now wish we didn't know: that the insanely catchy, sexy, sort of rapey song is about her! What's the proper wife reaction? Um ... thanks ... I guess? 

According to Robin, the tune that made him an overnight sensation but caused controversy among more conservative music fans isn't really derogatory at all. He says it's a harmless song that he penned for his wife of 20 years, whom he says is the "good girl" he sings about. Even Robin's dad, actor Alan Thicke, has come out to defend the song, saying it encourages women to be more liberated and that it's no racier than anything else he's heard. I agree with that last point, at least. 

But I'm not sure how I'd feel if my husband was like, hey, you were totally on my mind when I wrote, "You the hottest b**ch in this place" or "I'll give you something big enough to tear your a** in two." Okay, technically, that last sweet lyric wasn't Robin's, it belonged to T.I., but still. Just one more thing I'll have to explain to my mom. Or our kids -- yikes!

By now I think we can all give Paula credit where it's due. She seems to be the coolest wife on earth -- one who is neither fazed by the on-stage harassment her husband faced at the big foam hand of Miley nor at the cheating accusations that followed. She's confident and savvy and probably more chuffed that "Blurred Lines" made her hubby a superstar rather than concerned about its lyrics. 

And it is a pretty damn memorable song. 

How do you think Paula reacted when she learned "Blurred Lines" was about her?

If it fits their relationship then it's kind of sweet. My husband randomly writes little songs for me, most females would find them offensive or mean but I think they are great. Because it fits our personality. I'm happy he knows me well enough to know what really amuses me and makes me happy.

I cant help but be really offended by this piece of crap music. No, it is not sweet. It is however, incredibly degrading and make most women seem like prudes. While I am not a prude, I do not enjoy someone calling me a "good girl" in a derogatory way. How dare his father defend this. If he taught his son to respect women, this wouldn't be an issue, unfortunately he didn't. What makes matters worse, is that now we have to explain this and the lyrics to our children but even worse than that, with the airplay and media attention it is getting, the lyrics are being thrown at the public and engrained into the general psyche. In other words, badly done CafeMom for even jumping on this bandwagon. Thank you for publicizing something as degrading as this.

I don't understabd why people are so offended by this song in paticular. If my husband wanted to write a song claiming I was "the hottest bitch in this place" after 20 years, I'd be amused and flattered. But I guess that's just meā€¦and Paula, apparently. It's an extremely sexual song, but I don't see how that's a bad thing. And i don't see how the lyrics promote rape or come off as "rapey".

if you don't want to explain to your kids about this song, or even want them to hear it, then DON'T listen to it! simple as that! There... No explaining, no complaining!

You know what? I love this dog it's a great song to run to. Wording yeah okay maybe the radio edit version is better but who wouldn't want their husband to think they are the hottest b/-$& in da place? C'mon. It isn't any worse than these ho's these ho's blah blah blah....get over it...and it certainly it worst than Miley Cyrus or Brittany spears! (Brittany spears I used to like....she went way to off the deep end for me!)

Song****

If the song is about his wife, then why is the music video him & several naked women? I don't get that. If it was about his wife, & a song to honor his wife & how he's still so attracted to her than why not have the focus of the music video be her & their relationship? That's just my thought. Doesn't make much sense to me.

@ 1sttimemommy93 - it' was Paula's idea for him to record the other video with the women completely nude. I think their marriage is pretty secure!
