‘Blurred Lines’ Updates: Judge Reduces Pharrell Williams/Robin Thicke Verdict By $2 Million

robin-thicke-pharrell-thatgrapejuice

‘Get Her Back’ beau Robin Thicke seems to take two steps back for every step he takes forward regarding the highly publicized case surrounding his career-defining hit ‘Blurred Lines.’

As fans know, he – alongside ‘Lines’ co-stars Pharrell Williams, T.I., and their label Universal Music – were sued by the family of late Motown legend Marvin Gaye for the song’s similarity to his 1977 hit ‘Got To Give It Up.’ The result?  A whopping $7.4 million dollar decision in favor of the family.

In response to the unfavorable verdict, Williams was hung out to dry as Thicke, Universal Music, and T.I. tried to downplay their involvement in the song’s creation – despite all receiving royalties.  Much to the singer and his label’s dismay, only T.I. was able to successfully escape the copyright infringement claim…initially.

The week week brought with it fresh updates surrounding the case that will give the song’s producer, ‘Happy’ hitmaker Williams, a new reason to smile.  T.I. and Universal Music, on the other hand, probably won’t be.

Promoters Face Backlash For Featuring Vanilla Ice In All-Star ‘Selma Anniversary Concert’

National Television Awards 2010 - Winners Boards

The name ‘Selma’ is ringing many bells in 2015.

Indeed, despite losing out on the ‘Best Picture’ Academy Award this year for the 2014 Ava Duvernay historical film developed in its honor, the film remains a highly recommended watch by fans and critics.  A timely affair as March 7th, 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the city’s infamous ‘Bloody Sunday,’ the movie kicked off what is set to be a number of tributes in homage to the Alabama town’s mark on history.

The most notable acknowledgements will come via this weekend’s 40+ events commemorating the march on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, including an all-star concert featuring the likes of T.I., Tamar Braxton, Anthony Hamilton, Rick Ross, and Fantasia as well as appearances from President Barack ObamaMary J. Blige and Bono of U2.  And, while fans of ‘Do What U Want‘ co-stars Lady Gaga & R. Kelly were disappointed to find out the duo will not be performing (as previously reported), some are expressing even deeper disappointment that ‘Ice Ice Baby’ star Vanilla Ice has been billed as a featured performer.

He may have just faced legal trouble for home invasion and burglary charges, but now it seems the former hitmaker is being accused of stealing another piece of black culture something else:

Kreayshawn Slams Iggy Azalea As Will.I.Am Comes To Her Defense / #WhenTipTweets Takes Over Twitter

iggy-azalea-

As Tweeters keep their eyes and ears open for Twitter group “Anonymous” to make good on their threats directed to rapstress Iggy Azalea, the onslaught of negative attention aimed at the rap diva sees no signs of slowing.

After her mentor T.I. took to the social media outlet to defend her from comments lent by rapper Q-Tip, followers lit into him via the trending topic #WhenTipTweets.  Fueled by a collection of memes implying the rapper is an “Uncle Tom” (amongst other names we’d rather not repeat), the hashtag has only gained momentum as the day has gone on.

Adding her own brand of fuel to the fire, fellow vanilla femcee Kreayshawn weighed in on the hot topic to lend Azalea some advice on “racism”.  See that below as well as ‘Scream & Shout’ hitmaker Will.I.Am, best known for his work with Black Eyed Peas-frontwoman/rapstress Fergie, shouts out his appreciation of Iggy’s contributions.

It’s all just one big ball of confusion and it awaits after the jump:

thatgrapejuice-iggy-ti

While most are tweet-watching to see if the “Anonymous” hacker threats against rap starlet Iggy Azalea will manifest into anything more, her mentor – rap mogul T.I. – comes to her aid again.

Indeed, after calming the bark of legendary rapper Snoop Dogg just weeks ago, now Tip is clapping back at rapper Q-Tip on behalf of Azalea after the ‘Breathe and Stop’ beau lent her a stinging lesson in hip hop history (see that here if you missed it).

In a lengthy Twitter lecture, Tip refutes some of Q-Tip’s claims about Azalea’s intent with hip hop, the fear of white people embezzling from Black culture, and more.  Tuck in below, read his rant, and tell us if you agree:
