Emily Ratajkowski Finally Talks About ‘Blurred Lines’
A recently released InStyle magazine features an interview with Emily Ratajkowski, the We Are Your Friends actress who first garnered attention for being the naked girl in Robin Thicke’s controversial 2013 music video, “Blurred Lines”. The video was criticized for it’s rapey lyrical undertones, and additionally has been accused of copyright infringement by Marvin Gaye’s family estate. The estate won the legal battle, winning over 7 million dollars in the settlement. The video’s also been a source of frustration for Emily, who said, “Anyone comes up to me about Blurred Lines, I’m like, ‘Are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?’
She went on to say, “The video is the bane of my existence,” and that she “wasn’t into the idea” of the video in the first place and that she felt that she “came off as a bit annoyed” in the video. Her issue was mainly that she felt she didn’t understand why “a woman’s naked body is so controversial in our culture”.
So there you have it. Don’t ask Emily Ratajkowski about ‘Blurred Lines’. And probably don’t ask her about We Are Your Friends, which was released to one of the third worst box office opening of all time.
