Robin Thicke has made some bombshell claims about his recording process for “Blurred Lines” and specifically about his own drug abuse.
The 37-year-old singer, along with co-writer Pharrell Williams, is being sued by Marvin Gaye‘s children, who accused them of making an unauthorized derivative of the song “Got to Give It Up.”
When Robin was asked if he was present when the rhythm track was being created for the song, he claimed he was high on drugs at the time.
“To be honest, that’s the only part where — I was high on vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio,” Robin said in a deposition (via THR). “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.”
