Robin Thicke took the stage in New York on Tuesday morning, and performed for the Today show’s summer concert series.
The singer, who’s is promoting is sixth studio album Blurred Lines out today, performed his smash hit “Burred Lines” and “Take It Easy On Me.”
Prior to taking the stage, Thicke addressed the controversy surrounding the “Blurred Liines” lyrics. “When we made the song we had nothing but the most respect for women. Sometimes the lyrics can get misconstrued when you’re just trying to put people on the dance floor and have a good time. But we had no idea it would stir this much controversy. We only had the best intentions,” the singer told Matt Lauer.
HH recently caught up with Pharrell Williams, who was featured on “Blurred Lines,” to talk about the controversy behind the “Blurred Lines” music video.
“At no point were there any kisses between the girls, they just had their tops off. Our goal was to make a moving editorial,” Pharrell shared.
“It was kind of like a social experiment. I think we achieved our goal in terms of like, it’s not raunchy … I don’t believe in objectifying women,” Williams added.
