Robin Thicke Finally Comments On The VMAs After Taking Weeks To Perfect His Douchey Response

Miley Cyrus 7

I’m just going to come right out and ask if Robin Thicke lives under a rock or if he just prefers to take three weeks longer than the general public to talk about a pop culture controversy he was involved in. Either way, it seems that he used that time to craft the douchiest response possible. If that’s not the case, and he’s just that much of a tool with zero effort, I’m very frightened. As you probably suspected, the event he’s finally commenting on is the VMAs performance that will be forever burned into our collective unconscious until the end of time. The performance which inspired everyone and their mother to share their opinion about Miley Cyrus and her twerking habit.

Robin spoke to Star Magazine about the performance in a new interview you can watch here, and he echoed Miley Cyrus’ “it was all part of our evil plan” sentiments. Except, if you ask me, it’s even worse to hear it coming from his mouth since he’s not only sixteen years older, but he’s also married with a child. That should pretty much guarantee he doesn’t plan ahead to have a half-naked 20-year-old rub a foam finger on his crotch.

“We knew what we were getting ourselves into,” Thicke said. “We’re entertainers, and the VMAs is the perfect place for a little shock and awe. Yeah, we kind of knew when we were in rehearsal and we were like, ‘OK, if you touch me with your foam finger all over my crotch, obviously a few people are going to have something to say about this.’ But that was the whole point. I mean the whole point was to excite and provoke and entertain.”

Unfortunately Miley Cyrus has gotten most of the negative attention for this performance, because Hollywood loves to talk about a good girl gone bad, and she hasn’t really let us forget it, making effort after effort to keep herself in the spotlight. But Robin Thicke deserves just as much — if not more — flack for what happened. For a grown man with a family to plan such a hypersexual performance with a young woman desperate for attention is frankly pretty despicable. Oh wait, Robin doesn’t understand how people thought it was sexual, which makes his whole response even worse.

“I totally understand everyone comes from different places and has their own opinions, but when people use the word sexual, I didn’t feel anything sexual about the performance,” Thicke said. “I thought it was silly and funny, she was being humorous and naughty, but it wasn’t sexually charged at all. That’s who she is, that’s how she likes to dance, she was just being herself and I was just being myself.”

News flash everyone! We now live in a world where public foam finger masturbation and butt-on-crotch dancing isn’t sexual. What would have made it sexual, Robin? If you two had just ripped your clothes off and had sex right there on the stage? Was that part of your first draft?

    You’re wrong. As soon as the performance was finished, he tweeted That the performance with Miley Cyrus was dope. Find something else to spew about.

      Saying it was “dope” isn’t much of a response if you ask me, especially since the controversy was still in its infancy.

      Well, I doubt that he would tweet the truth, namely that his performance was very pitchy and Miley’s behavior was embarrassing and lacked any artistic quality to it. If I were in his shoes, I would probably use one word to describe my performance as well.

    Miley Cyrus has been out of control since she took that half-naked photo on the cover of Vogue six years ago. Did yall also forget about her performance where she basically dancing on a pole?

  • Someone with common sense.

    The performance lines up with parts of his Give it 2 U video which came our right after the VMA’s. If you are appalled by the sexual type of performances, turn off the VMA’s, MTV, and actually the entire TV. Then try to reposition yourself as an adult and stop throwing trash articles on the internet. We will all thank you.

      I think perhaps you should take your own advice and stop reading “trash” articles on the internet and then commenting on them. We would all thank YOU.

    I just find Robin Thicke smarmy. And I am not buying this incessant “sex god” persona he keeps trying to sell us. Perv? Yes. Hot, sexy guy? God no. Truly sexy guys don’t have to convince us they are sexy by grinding on clueless, exhibitionist 20-year-olds and telling us (literally, in balloons) they have a big dick. Give it up, buddy. It’s not going to work.
