Even though "Blurred Lines" was 2013's undisputed "song of the summer" the catchy smash hit has since become a source of never-ending headaches for its singer, Robin Thicke.

Laying It on Thicke

Thicke is being sued over "Blurred Lines" by the family of legendary soul singer Marvin Gaye. They claim that Thicke stole the rhythm and basic melody of the song from Gaye's 1977 classic "Got to Give It Up."

Thicke basically admits that "Lines" is plagiarized in a bizarre, rambling deposition that just went public today. However, he says he's not responsible, as his collaborator Pharrell "wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself."

"I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up to the studio," Thicke tells lawyers when asked about the song. "I thought I wanted...I wanted to be more involved than I was by the time nine months later when the song became a huge hit...I was jealous and wanted some of the credit."

Robin Thicke was it again last night.

The turned the 2014 BET Awards into his own version of relationship therapy, dedicating the track "Forever Love" to estranged wife Paula Patton and telling the crowd prior to performing:

"I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, 'I miss you, and I’m sorry.' This is called Forever Love."

Thicke has pulled this maneuver numerous times since splitting from Patton several months ago.

He tried to get Patton back at the Billboard Music Awards in May and openly pleaded with the actress during various concert stops during his spring tour.

Robin Thicke wants to get back together with his estranged wife Paula Patton, and he's making sure the whole world knows it.

First, Thicke named his new album "Paula" (subtle), now he's released a music video that's basically a 4-minute apology for effing things up the first time around.

While Robin bemoans the state of his relationship with blood on his face (?) angry text messages flash across the screen...and, man, do they paint a disturbing picture of Paula and Robin's relationship.

Highlights include: "I kept trying to warn you you were pushing me too far;" "You drink too much;" and "Why why why why why???" 

Needless to say, "Blurred Lines" it ain't.

We're sorry for your relationship troubles, Robin, but we'd like to offer some career advice: less depressing divorce drama and more naked Emily Ratajkowski.

Robin Thicke is really pulling out all the stops in his quest to win Paula Patton back. Just when we think there aren't more stops he can pull out, well ...

Not only did he write a new single "Get Her Back" about his estranged wife, he is now reportedly naming his upcoming album Paula in her honor!

Paula Patton and husband Robin Thicke. They make a cute couple, wouldn't you agree?

The album, which will contain "Get Her Back," is set to drop on July 1.

Since Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced their split in late February, he has embarked on a shameless, public effort to do as his single implies.

Making his intentions known everywhere from celebrity gossip outlets to the 2014 Billboard Music Awards stage and now his album name, he misses her.

Hard.

Summer might not officially begin until June 21, but unofficially, the hottest season of the year is here. Bathing suits, sunscreen, and the beach are all calling our names.

You know what else this season needs? More... MUSIC. Songs of summer, to be exact.

What, exactly, IS a "song of summer"? Right now it's what every artist is trying to acquire: the most played song of the season that most ... well, reminds us of summer.

Our favorite warm-weather jams conjure up images of bodies of water, dancing, frozen and/or boozy drinks, and maybe even some lovin'. Preferably all of the above.

To that end, we've compiled a playlist of 21 songs of summer, comprised of #1 hits and hot songs we love that remind us of our carefree time in the sun.

Roll your windows down, turn your radio up, and cruise through this gallery ...

THE song of summer, Will Smith's "Summertime" has been oft-imitated, never duplicated.

Robin Thicke is being sued by the estate of Marvin Gaye for stealing from not one but two of the late music icon's songs, according to court papers.

The family initially claimed that Thicke's hit "Blurred Lines" plagiarized Gaye's 1977 track "Got to Give It Up." Now they say he uses two Gaye songs.

Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris, Jr. (T.I.), who wrote "Blurred Lines," preemptively sued Gaye's estate after their complaints in August.

The trio claimed that "Blurred Lines" was "starkly different" from "Got to Give It Up," that Gaye does not own a genre, and that the claims were damaging.

Now Gaye's family have filed a countersuit against Thicke alleging he ripped off "Got to Give It Up" and "After the Dance" for his 2011 album Love After War.

With "Blurred Bynes," a group of drag queens have done the impossible, covering Robin Thicke's summer smash and calling out troubled actress Amanda Bynes.

Okay, maybe not the impossible. But didn't see that one coming, did you?

L.A. drag queens Willam Belli, Detox (both ex-contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race) and Vicky Vox have just released the video lampooning Amanda Bynes' wild antics.

Watch it in its NSFW glory below:

The three queens sing seductively, "OK she smoked some weed, you know you can't malign her. So high she tweets to Drake to murder her vagina."

Hashtag: #VAGACIDE.

Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" may be the song of the summer, but a parody called "Defined Lines" gives it a run for its money - and turns the tables on the taboo track.

An Auckland University student group, the Law Revue Girls, created "Defined Lines" in response to the criticism to the song, which some say is decidedly sexist.

The parody attempts to "define the supposedly 'blurred lines'" and declares: "What you see on TV / Doesn't speak equality / It's straight up misogyny."

Robin, Pharrell and T.I.? You all just got served.

Olivia Lubbock, one of the women featured, said:

Robin Thicke's "Give it 2 U" music video has been released, and it features some familiar imagery from what viewers witnessed at the MTV VMAs.

No, not Miley Cyrus Twerking. But not far off.

Suddenly, Thicke and Cyrus' somewhat random duet Sunday night makes a little more sense, given some of the similarities with the video he just dropped.

"Give It 2 U," which features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, is jam-packed with Twerking, foam fingers, dancers sticking their tongues out ... you name it.

All that's missing is Miley Cyrus herself, but she's clearly there in spirit. Watch Robin's newest music video above and cast your vote below ...

What do you think of "Give it 2 U"?
