The lyrics for Robin Thicke's hit summer single Blurred Lines has drawn criticism, since it tops Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart.

The music video to the chart-topping single was banned from YouTube has been criticized in multiple reports because it may make some "female music fans feel uncomfortable."

The Blurred Lines music video features Thicke with music producer Pharrell and T.I., who also appear on the song. The trio are fully dressed, wearing men's suits, while dancing alongside nude, topless and barely clothed models.The video was deemed too racy and banned by YouTube in March, according to Mail Online, who reported the story on April 2. After the ban, Thicke posted it on Vevo and it garnered 1.3 million views in a few days. Since its release, it has been viewed by more than 53 million people.

Thicke said he received approval from his wife, actress Paula Patton, before he shot the video with nude and topless models.

"Obviously if she didn't like it, I wouldn't put it out," said Thicke, according to Mail Online.

The day the ban was announced, a blogger from Feministla.com suggested Thicke's song implies rape and had some choice words about the following lyric: "You're a good girl, you know you want it."

"Call me a cynic, but that phrase does not exactly encompass the notion of consent in sexual activity," the blogger said. 

In her article published in the Daily Beast, Tricia Romano said of the lyrics to Blurred Lines, "The song is about how a girl really wants crazy wild sex but doesn't say it--positing that age-old problem where men think no means yes into a catchy, hummable son."

Thicke was asked about the video's concept, which also includes animals and mylar ballons blown up to read, "Robin Thicke has a big dick." The father of one told GQ.com in an article published on May 7 that when people asked him whether he felt the video was degrding to wome he said the following:

"I'm like, 'Of course it is.' What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman," he said.

 "I've never gotten to do that before. I've always respected women," Thicke added. 

"So we just wanted to turn it over on its head and make people go, 'Women and their bodies are beautiful. Men are always gonna want to follow them around'," he further explained. 

"After the video got banned on YouTube, my wife (Patton) tweeted, 'Violence is ugly. Nudity is beautiful. And the 'Blurred Lines' video makes me wanna...'," he said.

"You know. And that's the truth. Right now, with terrorism and poverty and Wall Street and Social Security having problems, nudity should not be the issue," Thicke added.
