Robin Thicke’s music video for Blurred Lines has been branded too hot for YouTube and has been banned from the website.
The clip features nude models prowling around Robin Thicke and rappers T.I. and Pharrell.
The video is still playing on the music video website Vevo.
Robin Thicke’s unrated clip was released last week and garnered more than 1 million views in days. The original video was released a week before and has 1.3 million views.
The R&B crooner said in an interview last week that he had sought the approval of his wife, actress Paula Patton, to shoot with nude models.
“Obviously if she didn’t like it, I wouldn’t put it out,” Robin Thicke said.
The original kid- and teen-friendly version debuted last month.
Robin Thicke, 36, said director Diane Martel came up with the idea of using nude models.
“As long as it’s fun and the girls are comfortable, let’s do something silly,” Robin Thicke said.
“Let’s take some chances.”
Blurred Lines will appear on Robin Thicke’s sixth album, due out this summer. The singer said because of his upcoming album, he won’t appear on the second season of BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood, which also stars comedian-actor Kevin Hart.
