Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' Video Banned From YouTube

April 1st, 2013 2:22pm EDT
ROBIN THICKE
R&B singer Robin Thicke's raunchy new promo for his song Blurred Lines has been banned from YouTube.com after bosses deemed it too sexually provocative for the video-sharing website.

The Sex Therapy hit-maker recorded a clean and a dirty version of the clip with hip-hop stars T.I. and Pharrell Williams and released the adults-only video, which featured naked models dancing for the cameras, online last week.

However, YouTube executives soon removed the sexy film as it was in violation of the website's censorship guidelines.

In a Twitter.com post, Thicke writes, "YouTube took down the U...

The stars were out Saturday night for the Film Independent Spirit Awards, held at the Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

Hosted by comedian Andy Samberg this year, the awards ceremony isn't quite as formal as Sunday night's Oscars, taking place over lunch in a tent on the beach with no string of limousines dropping off A-list stars and port-a-potties being the place for nominees to "freshen up."

This year's awards were dominated by Silver Linings Playbook, which landed trophies for Best Screenplay, Best Film, Best Director (David O. Russell) and Best Actress (Jennifer Lawrenc...

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: While I was watching 'Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol' directed by Brad Bird, in IMAX, a thought kept drifting through my mind. Why am I finding this film so boring? Why does everything look so familiar?

It wasn't until the drive home that it hit me... Of course, everything looked so familiar because I've seen it all before. The stunts, the chases, the fights, the plot and that is why I found 'MI4'... BORING.

Okay, to be fair not completely boring, but I was expecting so much more.
