T.Icke">Robin Thicke claims 'Blurred Lines' is a ''feminist'' song.

The R&B singer has been criticised for the track's raunchy lyrics and racy music video, which sees topless girls frolicking around with Robin and guest vocalists Pharrell Williams and T.I., but he insists the track is actually meant to empower women.

He said on America's 'Today' show: ''It's supposed to stir conversation, it's supposed to make us talk about what's important and what the relationship between men and women is, but if you listen to the lyrics it says 'That man is not your maker' - it's actually a feminist movement within itself.''

Despite his risqué lyrics about his bedroom antics, 36-year-old star has been loved-up with his wife, actress Paula Patton, for years and he insists the trio have nothing but respect for the female sex.

Robin added: ''When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women and - my wife, I've been with the same woman since I was a teenager.

''So for us, we were just trying to make a funny song and sometimes the lyrics get misconstrued when you're just trying to put people on the dance floor and have a good time, but we had no idea it would stir this much controversy. We only had the best intentions.''
