Pharrell loves Miley Cyrus.
Otherwise, he probably wouldn’t have made a song with her called “Come Get It Bae.”
But now he’s using his bae in a Hail Mary defense as part of his and Robin Thicke’s ongoing lawsuit over “Blurred Lines,” brought on by the estate of the late Marvin Gaye.
According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Pharrell testified in court that it was Miley who inspired “Blurred Lines” and not Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.”
“I had Earl Sweatshirt in one room and Miley Cyrus in the other. I was doing a bunch of country-sounding music with Miley,” he said (via “THR”). “It was like blending this country sound with this up-tempo groove.”
Thicke previously testified that he shouldn’t really be credited for co-writing the song, which – according to the “L.A. Times” – means he lied to Oprah when saying Gaye was the inspiration for much of his music.
