Who? What? When? Where? Why?

Yes, we just learned today that the notorious track "Blurred Lines" was inspired by none other than Miley Cyrus.

It's not what you're thinking. Pharrell did not have Miley in mind when writing the lyrics, "I know you want it, I know you want it. You're a good girl."

Skateboard P had Miley in mind while writing the actual music for the song. Pharrell and Robin Thicke are currently on trial with Marvin Gaye's family because the Gayes feel that "Blurred Lines" is too similar to Marvin's "Got To Give It Up."

According to Pharrell, he only had the "feel" of the '70s in mind while producing the track. "I had Earl Sweatshirt in one room and Miley Cyrus in the other. I was doing a bunch of country-sounding music with Miley… It was like blending this country sound with this up-tempo groove."

This goes against previous interviews where both Pharrell and Robin revealed that "Got To Give It Up" was inspiration for "Blurred Lines."

The case only gets messier with Robin then blaming the whole thing on Pharrell and claiming that he was drunk and high on Vicodin during the interviews.

Best of luck to Pharrell and Robin Thicke. We think they're both going to need it.
