Robin Thicke has dismissed criticism of his worldwide smash hit T.I. and Pharrell Williams - has received some backlash for some of its content, with the accompanying musical video featuring topless women also coming under fire.
During an interview with Today, Thicke has now insisted that instead of being derogatory, Blurred Lines is in fact "a feminist movement".
The 36-year old explained: "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women and - my wife, I've been with the same woman since I was a teenager.
"So for us, we were just trying to make a funny song and sometimes the lyrics 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.
He added: "We only had the best intentions."
Thicke then went on to add that the song's message could be positive towards women, stating: "It's supposed to stir conversation, it's supposed to make us talk about what's important and what the relationship between men and women is…
"But if you listen to the lyrics it says 'That man is not your maker' - it's actually a feminist movement within itself."
