The Blurred Lines Scandal Two years On: Where Are They Now?

Flipside fondly looks back on that most magical of EUSA scandals, now celebrating its two-year anniversary: the banning of Blurred Lines – the song that launched a thousand opinion articles – from all EUSA venues.

In this article we look at what has become of the key players.

Robin Thicke: In a real turn up for the books, Thicke is now championing the feminist cause, and has an unlikely collaboration with Malala Yousafzai lined up for the spring, a chart banger about women’s rights around the world, to be produced by Daft Punk.

Pharell Williams: His hats have got wider and his mainstream success more enormous. Pharell’s next single, Sad, is poised to be the soundtrack to the coming miserable winter season.

Kirsty Haigh: Edinburgh’s very own activist extraordinaire, the sab who almost single-handedly got the song banned, is still on campus two years later, and still straight thuggin’.

Teviot: Teviot is still the building that houses the Edinburgh University Student Union. It is still a place of weak coffee, lively debate and exchange of ideas, albeit with other terrible songs on in the background (with a bit of Tame Impala -usually Elephant – also occasionally thrown into the mix).

EUSA: EUSA has gone from strength to strength since the scandal went down, successfully adopting a child, freeing Tibet and inventing a new strain of super-skunk, while also tackling the issue of groping at the Big Cheese and re-introducing the strawpedo, to great popular support. All masterminded by Ronny Joss-Taters-Whats-Taters-Precious-Potatoes-Boil-Em-Mash-Em-Stick-Em-In-A-Stew and his wonderful team, we salute you EUSA.

Music: Music never really recovered from the battering its reputation took as a result of Blurred Lines. Music has been listlessly wandering the streets for two full years now, carrying a sign that say ‘will sing for food’, and hoping that people start listening to Alabama Shakes to restore some of its credibility.
