Robin Thicke has alot going on his in life, his marriage has not only crashed, he is being sued for ripping off Marvin Gaye’s 1977 classic “Got to Give it Up” for his hit song, Blurred Lines.
The issue now is, he had previously claimed he co-wrote the track with Pharrell Williams and TI but now that a lawsuit has been filed and he stands the chance of losing money to Marvin Gaye’s children, he confessed in court documents obtained by the Hollywood Reporter,that he was drunk when the song was being written..
‘I was jealous and I wanted some of the credit… I tried to take credit for it later because [Williams] wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself and I was envious of that, “To be honest, that’s the only part where – I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. ‘So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted – I – I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit.’
‘So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was and I – because I didn’t want him – I wanted some credit for this big hit. “But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.’
He also added that he was just ‘lucky to be in a room with Pharrell’ and that he made up the ridiculous story as he thought it would help sell more records. Still, he was awarded 18-22 percent of the publishing royalities, despite his lack of input to the track.
