Robin Thicke 2014 North American Tour Kicks Off in Atlanta February 21st

Following the release of his best selling, GRAMMY nominated new album, Blurred Lines, Robin Thicke will kick off his highly anticipated Spring 2014 North American tour on Friday, February 21st in Atlanta, Georgia at the Fox Theatre. Robin will be joined by special guests DJ Cassidy and K. Michelle on select dates. New markets have been added to the exclusive 19 stop tour which will continue through the spring (please see full routing below). K. Michelle replaces Jessie J, who will be in the U.K. recording her album and cannot make it over to the U.S. Robin is teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity to offer fans some of the best seats in the house to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). These special tickets are available exclusively at www.ticketsforcharity.com. There are also a limited number of VIP packages available for purchase on www.robinthicke.com.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of Robin receiving the honor of top-selling single of 2013 for “Blurred Lines” with 6.5 million units sold. The bestselling track also became one of the few songs to sell more than 6 million in 2013, and is additionally among only 26 singles to have moved more than this many units in the history of the Billboard charts.

This past summer marked the debut of Robin Thicke’s highly anticipated sixth studio album, Blurred Lines (Star Trak/Interscope Records). The collection debuted at #1 onBillboard Top 200 while, “Blurred Lines,” the single, continued its 12-week reign on the Billboard Hot 100 chart making Robin the first artist to take the top spot on both lists since December 2012 and only the 17th act to earn the distinction in the past ten years. “Blurred Lines” scored the highest audience ever recorded and broke records by climbing to #1 on 5 radio charts simultaneously (Top 40, Rhythm, Urban, Hot AC & Urban AC) – the first time this has ever been done by an artist. New York Magazine called the album, “A great record. Period,” while Rolling Stone said, “Robin Thicke sings, writes, produces, plays keyboard and even raps a little on his excellent sixth album.” Most recently, Robin received three GRAMMY nominationsincluding “Record of the Year,” “Best Pop Vocal Album,” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” The third single off of the Blurred Lines, “Feel Good,” is available now.

Miley Cyrus Dancer Felt ‘Degraded’ at VMAs

One of the little people Miley Cyrus hired for her provocative MTV Video Music Awards performance in August has blasted the singer for turning her into a figure of fun.

Hollis Jane was among the dancers who dressed up in bear costumes for the pop star’s We Can’t Stop set, and she has now taken to her blog to lash out at her one-time boss.

She writes, “I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do.

“I realize not everyone shares my opinion and I might just be young and naive, but I feel like the acceptance of this kind of treatment has got to stop… I had never been in a performance where I was purely meant to be gawked or laughed at. I will never forget that performance because it is what forced me to draw my personal line in the sand.

“After our first dress rehearsal in the costumes with the crew, publicists, performers etc. watching us, I walked out of the Barclay Center shaking and crying. I was being stared and laughed at for all of the wrong reasons. I was being looked at as a prop… as something less than human.”

Cyrus faced a barrage of criticism after her VMAs performance after stripping to her flesh-colored latex underwear for a suggestive performance of Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke.
