“She’s my good girl. And I know she wants it because we’ve been together 20 years.”

— Robin Thicke, cheekily describing the inspiration for his summer smash “Blurred Lines” (which drew the ire of critics for suggestive lyrics such as “I know you want it/But you’re a good girl”) was actually his wife, Paula Patton. The song’s risque music video, featuring Thicke bouncing around with a group of barely-clothed models, made a splash this summer, mostly when the “unedited” version was banned from YouTube. But Thicke recently told a British talk show “I don’t think people got it,” according to the Daily Mail, and that it’s based on Patton, whom he started dating in high school. So “Blurred Lines” is really a love song?
