Lines too Blurred?

One of the most popular hits in 2013 was Blurred lines by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams. However, not everybody liked it.

Blurred lines was one of the best-selling and most often downloaded hits of 2013. It was a huge success, all over the world. It was probably also one of the most sexist songs ever released. It was considered so sexist that it was actually banned from quite a few universities, starting in Scotland.
