MISOGYNY IN MUSIC
IN the midst of recent controversy, when I now think of R&B’s Robin Thicke another ‘type’ of man also comes to mind.
It’s boringly obvious that Robin Thicke is flirting with controversy to raise his public profile. The family man, lily-white image only seems to work for Michael Bublé these days.
He’s a white-collared business man that hits the good bars on weekends. They slip young girls business cards instead of exchanging phone numbers, they pay for drinks while they dangle their American Express card from the tips of their fingers and look you deep in the eye when they tell you to order “anything you like”.
Post Robin Thicke’s number one single ‘Blurred Lines’, featuring Pharrell Williams and rapper T.I, came widespread accusations of the song being degrading to women.
