Robin Thicke Sues Over Blurred Lines!
Everybody Get Up (In Court)…
Blurred Lines is a massive hit here as well as being “the song of the summer” in America, which is probably why Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. have had to file a lawsuit to prove that their song is unique - and avoid being sued by Gaye’s kids!
Gaye’s estate, run by his kids, are saying that Blurred Lines rips elements of their dad’s hit “Got To Give It Up,” so Mr. Thicke is taking “Preemptive action” and trying to get a judge to say that the song is an original hit!
Here’s Blurred Lines:
And here’s Marvin Gaye’s Classic “Got to Give It Up”.
What do you think? Inspiration or something more?
