Williams says there's nothing objectifying about it...
In an interview with The Guardian, Pharrell Williams defended his collaboration with Robin Thicke, "Blurred Lines." According to Williams, the song doesn't objectify women.
Williams stated, "It says, 'That man is not your maker.' There's nothing objectifying about that." He also said that he "respected" the reactions the song received and added, "I'm not a woman, so I can never tell them how they feel. That's why this album ['G I R L'] is a gesture. I'm just trying to make it clear what I feel."
When he was asked if the song was meant to take the piss out of seedy men, Williams said, "No, it's not taking the piss out of anyone. It's just saying that there's blurred lines where a woman wants to do something, but she knows she shouldn't."
