“Got To Give It Up”! Robin Thicke & Pharrell Ordered To Pay $7.3 Million To Marvin Gaye’s Family For “Blurred Lines”!

Robin Thicke Video Still

Well, the lines were not blurred, at least to the jury. Marvin Gaye's family is being awarded $7.3 million from Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke for "Blurred Lines" sampling and borrowing without permission Gaye' 1977 song "Got To Give It Up".

Marvin's family was attempting to get $25 million from Thicke and Williams for copyright infringement of the song.

Variety reported that just last week that Williams felt there was no infringement on the song in question.

During the trial, Thicke played piano on the song and said during interviews in 2013 that when he said he was greatly influenced by Gaye during the recording of "Blurred Lines" and the album he recorded then, that he was drunk at the time of every interview mentioning Gaye. Every. Time.

“Right now, I feel free,” Marvin Gaye’s daughter, Nona Gaye, said after the verdict. “Free from … Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told.”-DocFB

Diagnosis: Giving up millions must suck. The song's popularity also killed Thicke's longtime marriage.

Shoot The J! Photo Of PRINCE From His Junior High Basketball Team Goes Viral!

Apparently just posting the photo to our Instagram account wasn't enough. A photo of PRINCE from his Junior High Basketball team has went viral in a short amount of time.

"Prince was an excellent player," basketball coach Richard Robinson told the Star Tribune. But apparently, Prince wasn't too pleased being the sixth or seventh man, and wanted to be on the starting lineup: "He was unhappy and he expressed that many, many times." He sure showed those starting players, huh?

So for those that doubted the Chappelle skit, now you know better!-DocFB
