The Word: Blurred Legal Lines: Robin Thicke’s court battle with Marvin Gaye’s people rages on
Aw, poor Robin Thicke. The slick-as-hell singer (who will always be better known to me as Jason Seaver’s other son) is currently embroiled in a court battle with Marvin Gaye’s estate, over allegations that he jacked elements of Gaye’s song “Got to Give it Up” for the insanely catchy mega-hit that is “Blurred Lines.”
Billboard reports that Gaye’s people just nixed a six-figure settlement offer in the court case, which means Mike Seaver’s somewhat suaver brother will have to keep fighting the suit.
But you know who I really don’t feel too badly for? Robin Thicke. Homeboy is neck deep in the finest tail the world has on offer (on set, at least. it is purported that he’s happily married and — probably less happily — faithful) and is currently dominating the world with what is arguably The Definitive Jam of Summer 2013. Did I mention all the sex that guy is most definitely having, (with his wife, JUST HIS WIFE) probably as I type this?
