“The familiarity with which you are holding that marijuana cigarette and the intensity of your drag suggest that you frequently smoke marijuana. This is not just a publicity stunt. You would be smoking marijuana even if you were not onstage at the European Music Awards.” 

“You must be quite the rebel, to smoke an illegal drug so brazenly.”

“What a long way you’ve come from your Disney days. No parents would approve of this,that’s for sure.”

“You sure must have a lot of friends with whom you attend unsupervised parties.”

“You must listen to a lot of hip hop.”

LISA ROBINSON: Miley Cyrus practically molested you last night at the V.M.A.’s—all that twerking and whatnot.

ROBIN THICKE: I spent my whole career playing it safe, being a gentleman, never doing anything controversial. I didn’t see [the V.M.A. performance] because I was onstage singing my ass off. They told me [beforehand] that Miley’s going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over… I just said, I don’t care, let’s entertain the people. Let’s give them something they’re not ready for, let’s make them talk.
L.R.: You’ve been married to actress Paula Patton for eight years; now you’re in tabloids with rumors about cheating. Has the success of “Blurred Lines” affected your personal life?
R.T.: There is nothing normal about a musician’s lifestyle; I don’t have a nine-to-five job at the post office. Seventy-five percent of my songs are about how much I love my wife and how much I need her. We’ve been married for eight years, and together since we were 16. We’re very lucky to have the greatest friendship; we’re John and Yoko—whatever that is—that’s who she is to me. I’ve always put her before everything and will continue to. But, yeah, be careful what you wish for.

“You are not a child anymore.”

“That dancing is very sexual.”

“The nude color of your outfit is suggestive of unclothed flesh and that is why it is provocative.”

“You’ve come a long way from Hannah Montana.”

“You sure have reached the age of consent.”

“Bet you’ve had sex before.” 

“Your plan to provoke the nation’s moms into texting up a shitstorm has succeeded admirably.”

“You must listen to hip hop and/or rap.”

“You’re very experimental and cool and we are all just trying to keep up with you.”

“You have a vagina. There it is.”

Miley, whatever it is, we’ll say it! Just let us know!
