Blurred Lines Verdict
Pharrell ain't Happy right now and states that "the verdict handicaps any creator out there who is making something that might be inspired by something else. This applies to fashion, music, design ... anything". And, if ya check out Twitter and news articles about this case, he certainly has tons of support from musicians, big wigs in the music industry and even legal experts.
I really don't know how much support Robin Thicke is gettin' after he basically said under oath that he was drunk and high on vicodin when he showed up at the studio and was just lucky to be in the room when Pharrell wrote the song. His recollection is that when they made the song he wanted to be more involved than he actually was, but when it became a huge hit, he wanted the credit. Yeppers, even though he had blurred vision, I think everyone agrees he's purdy much of a douche bag!
So, what do you think? Do you think this verdict blurs the line on the creative process? Or has your life just been a blur like mine after seein' this rendition on TV:
