Movie Stars and Gossip
ROBIN THICKE posed with naked girls (again!) on the cover of Treats! magazine, Hollywood news reports.
The cover may have reminded you of Robin Thicke‘s racy music video for his hit, “Blurred Lines.” However, it might surprise you that this photo was actually the inspiration for it… that his wife, Paula Patton, was also good with it.
Taken long before he filmed the video, where he and collaborators T.I. and Pharell Williams infamously cavorted with topless models, the nude cover is actually Thicke‘s first photo shoot with fully nude people.
So how did it inspire the video?
Robin, who has been hitting headlines non-stop following his sexually-charged performance with Miley Cyrus at last weeks MTV VMAs, explained to USA Today:
“When I was talking to my wife (Paula Patton) and her friends about the video they said, ‘Do something like Treats! because you love it so much.’ …I wanted to give homage where homage was due. We wanted to pay it all forward about our inspiration from Treats! for the ‘Blurred Lines’ video.”
He added about the eyebrow-raising video:
“All three guys in the video are married and have children…it was all tongue- in-cheek. We wanted to put everything in that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, etc. In fact, after the video was banned on YouTube, my wife tweeted, ‘Violence is ugly. Nudity is beautiful.’ We wanted it to be as silly and fun as possible.”
But here’s where it gets weirder. At the shoot, Robin then agreed that having topless models was “very sexy,” but it was Paula and her friends who asked him to “go all the way.”
“I think we definitely pushed the envelope.”
The fall issue featuring Thicke hits newsstands on September 16.
