Robin Thicke is clearly a magnet for naked models. Thicke is Treats! magazine’s September cover boy, and the cover photo looks all too familiar.
The singer graces the front page of the magazine rocking a dark grey, three piece suit, while surrounded by five women wearing very little. The 36-year-old poses confidently while the women huddle around the “Blurred Lines” singer, some grabbing hold of his legs.
During the interview for the cover shoot, Robin explained that posing with naked women is nothing new. “I’ve done some topless photo shoots before but never completely nude. It was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, ‘Okay, let’s just do topless’ … But, again, my wife and her friends were like, ‘No way … go all the way.’ I think we definitely pushed the envelope.”
Thicke came under fire earlier this year for his artistic, yet controversial music video for “Blurred Lines,” which featured a number of naked women dancing around Thicke, Pharrell and T.I, who both were featured on the track.
In fact, the video was inspired by Treats! magazine. “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,” the singer told the publication.
Thicke continued to talk about the controversial video, saying it was all in fun.
“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. And the “Blurred Lines” video makes me wanna …’ We wanted it to be as silly and fun as possible,” Thicke said.
