Even though most people are still talking about Miley Cyrus's performance at the MTV Video Music Awards three weeks ago, it's important to remember that she wasn't alone up on stage. Namely, Robin Thicke was there as well - after all, Miley needed someone to grind on, didn't she?
Despite that, the attention has remained centered on Miley, at least until now. Speaking with Star Magazine, Robin Thicke finally discussed his role at the VMAs. News flash: he doesn't see what the big deal is.
"We knew what we were getting ourselves into," Thicke said. "We're entertainers, and the VMAs is the perfect place for a little shock and awe. Yeah, we kind of knew when we were in rehearsal, and we were like, 'OK, if you touch me with your foam finger all over my crotch, obviously a few people are going to have something to say about this.' But that was the whole point. I mean, the whole point was to excite and provoke and entertain.”
From Madonna kissing Britney Spears to Thicke and Cyrus grinding, the VMAs have long been a showcase for risque perfomances. However, Thicke maintained that, even though some took offense to the show, it was all in good fun.
“I totally understand everyone comes from different places and has their own opinions, but when people use the word sexual, I didn’t feel anything sexual about the performance,” Thicke said. “I thought it was silly and funny, she was being humorous and naughty, but it wasn’t sexually charged at all. That’s who she is, that’s how she likes to dance, she was just being herself and I was just being myself.”
If you say so, Robin.
