Remember when Robin Thicke was just Thicke? Ewe.
People forgot it was all up in the crazy Sprite commercial.
Anyway, Rashida Jones, the daughter of Quincy, but a dope chick in her own right has lashed out against the overt sexualization in music and TV. She targeted Nicki, Miley and Robin all in one fell swoop. She says she went in after seeing online pics of Miley and Nicki and Robin’s vid. I don’t follow Miley at all, but remember Nicki has basically posed nude this year. Peep.
“I don’t know when the pornification of pop stars became so extreme, but as Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ video played in the background — naked fantasy women bouncing around and licking things — I realized that the lines were not really blurry at all,” she continued. “They were clear. A new era had arrived.”
“Let me say up front: I am not a prude. I love sex; I am comfortable with my sexuality. Hell, I’ve even posed in my underwear,” she wrote. “I also grew up on a healthy balance of sexuality in pop stars. Twenty years later, all the images seem homogenous. Every star interprets ‘sexy’ the same way: lots of skin, lots of licking of teeth, lots of bending over. I find this oddly … boring. Can’t I just like a song without having to take an ultrasound tour of some pop star’s privates?”
“It’s all enough to make you want to take a monastic vow and swear off Wi-Fi forever,” she said. “But I’m an optimistic woman. So as we say goodbye to 2013 and wish for a slightly more clothed, more original 2014.”
“They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!” -illseed.
