Still upset over what Miley Cyrus did at the VMAs? First of all, who are you, and why won’t you just let it go?! Secondly, Robin Thicke wants you to know that the whole incident wasn’t his fault — he’s merely Cyrus’s poor, put-upon “twerkee.”

“I was walking out towards Miley, [and] I’m not thinking sex. I’m thinking fun, you know?” Thicke tells Oprah Winfrey on this Sunday’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter. ”I mean, her and I don’t have that kind of — and just remember, I’m singing my butt off. So I’m sitting there, I’m looking up at the sky, and I’m singing. I’m not really paying attention to all that. That’s on her.”

And that’s when he uses the dreaded “t” word. “People ask me, ‘Do you twerk?’” the singer says. “I’m like, ‘Listen, I’m the twerkee. I’m twerked upon.’”

As Dr. Evil once said, riiiiiiight.

In case you’ve forgotten, this is how the chorus of “Blurred Lines” goes: “I know you want it/But you’re a good girl/The way you grab me/Must wanna get nasty/Go ahead, get at me.” How could anyone possibly infer that Thicke might be singing about sex? (The “it” in “I know you want it” must be a game of laser tag!) Clearly, the guy’s only interested in good, clean fun; he can’t be blamed for Cyrus taking things way too far onstage. It’s not like the unrated music video for Thicke’s hit features so many naked women that it was banned by YouTube!

Here’s the difference between those models and Miley Cyrus, though: In the video, Thicke’s angels were still, quiet, and ornamental. At the VMAs, Miley… was not. In the aftermath of their duet, some writers suggested that Cyrus was offering a critique of “Blurred Lines” and its video by performing an over-the-top parody of sexiness — and the more I think about it, the more I hope that they’re right.
