Check out these 15 musicians who received backlash for their controversial lyrics.
Song: Blurred Lines
After six albums and nearly two decades in the music business, Robin Thicke is finally at the top of the charts thanks to his single “Blurred Lines” off the album of the same title, but his success is not without its negativity. The song has received criticism for what many perceive to be misogynistic undertones. Tricia Romano of The Daily Beast described the song as “kind of rapey,” referring to lyrics like “I know you want it, but you’re a good girl…” but that hasn’t stopped listeners from making the song No. 1 on the Bilboard Hot 100 for seven weeks straight.
