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.
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."
