Robin Thicke Echoes Pharrell's Statement on Losing Lawsuit

Robin Thicke and T.I. have joined in on the statement already released by a rep for Pharrell Williams on losing the lawsuit involving their song “Blurred Lines.”

The trio was sued by the family of Marvin Gaye, who said the song infringes upon the late singer’s 1977 song “Got to Give It Up.” A jury awarded the family $7.3 million as part of the ruling.

“While we respect the judicial process, we are extremely disappointed in the ruling made today, which sets a horrible precedent for music and creativity going forward,” the three stars said in their joint statement. “‘Blurred Lines’ was created from the heart and minds of Pharrell, Robin and T.I. and not taken from anyone or anywhere else. We are reviewing the decision, considering our options and you will hear more from us soon about this matter.”

    7 million is extreme! The Gaye family don’t need no money – they gonna spent it foolishly. They should have received a percentage of the sales of that song.

    APPEAL, they need to have a jury who clearly comprehends the case, this was way to much money.
