Lil Wayne is rock star, but for his debut on Fox’s hit show The Masked Singer, he chose to perform the hit song of an even bigger one.
Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” hit has sparked a flurry of legal back and forth between the artists and the estate of Marvin Gaye. The pair were ordered to pay $5 million to the late R&B legend’s estate over of one of his most popular dance tunes.
It seems the five-year old battle over Robin Thicke’s biggest hit, “Blurred Lines,” is over. The family of Marvin Gaye has been awarded a win in the most recent appeal case.
Paula Patton has accused her ex-husband Robin Thicke of physically abusing her, and their child.
Next to Eminem, Robin Thicke is the game’s coolest white dude (Editor’s Note: losing Paula Patton was an “L”) and today he keeps his Hip-Hop ties going strong with his latest Nas–assisted single, “Deep.”
No, Robin Thicke did not propose to his 20-year-old girlfriend, April Love Geary. He did drop a new song with Nicki Minaj called “Back Together,” though.
The controversy surrounding “Blurred Lines” and whether its creators (Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams) owe Marvin Gaye’s family cash money isn’t going away anytime soon. A judge shaved about $2M off the original $7.4M verdict in favor of the late singer’s family, and added 50% of future earnings from the song, too.
The highlighted track in today’s Wired Tracks comes from French Montana, whose “Bad B*tch” single now features verses from Rick Ross and Fabolous.
A jury awarded Marvin Gaye’s family a whopping $7.3M in profits and damages to be paid by “Blurred Lines” creators Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams. However, the track’s other contributors, including T.I., may be brought into the fray very soon.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell had their fun getting rich off of Marvin Gaye’s handiwork but now it’s time to pay the piper. In other words, fork over a good chunk of those incredulous profits they made from the ubiquitous single, “Blurred Lines.”
As the “Blurred Lines” court proceedings are underway yet again, one thing both parties of the lawsuit can agree on is that the hit was the biggest thing poppin’ two years ago.
Robin Thicke has a new lady in his life, who just so happens to be a teenager. Thicke’s new girlfriend is 19-year-old model April Love Geary.
