Moby told the Associated Press he believes the music video for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” which features naked women, is misogynistic.
I mean we’re all naked under our clothes, to state the obvious, I have no issue with nudity, … but I do take issue with middle-age guys in suits being fawned on by naked women … It just felt like sort of distasteful misogyny. I mean all misogyny is distasteful, clearly.
“Blurred Lines” has been the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 for ten weeks.
Here’s video of Moby’s remarks:
