Robin Thicke Sues Marvin Gaye’s Family

Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ has had its share of controversy.  It all started with the nudey music video banned from YouTube.  The video showcased topless women dancing around while the gentleman in the video are all wearing nice suits.

That didn’t stop the song from taking off, though.

Then the pot kept getting stirred when the interwebs exploded with the accusation that Robin Thicke stole the beats from Marvin Gaye’s ‘Got To Give It Up.’

Now Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell have taken extra precaution by suing Marvin Gaye’s family and Bridgeport Music.  Basically, the guys are striking first before they get sued, but still say they respect their predecessors like Marvin Gaye.

Marvin Gaye’s family’s side goes a little something like this, courtesy of the ‘Hollywood Reporter’ : ‘The suit claims the Gaye family is alleging that “Blurred Lines” and Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” “feel” or “sound” the same, and that the “Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work.”‘

So I guess we will wait and see what happens.  The videos are posted below.  Do you think they are too similar to be a coincidence?
