Robin Thicke - Saucy Magazine Shoot Inspired Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines

Singer Robin Thicke was inspired to make his raunchy Blurred Lines video after he was asked to pose with a group of naked models for a saucy magazine photoshoot.

The star kept his clothes on while the girls around him stripped off in the spread for the September (13) issue of Treats! magazine.

Thicke admits he was so impressed with the shoot, he based his popular music video on the concept, following encouragement from his actress wife Paula Patton.

He says, "I've done some topless photo shoots before but never completely nude. It (the magazine shoot) was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, 'Okay, let's just do topless'... but, again, my wife and her friends were like, 'No way... go all the way.' I think we definitely pushed the envelope... When I was talking to my wife and her friends about the video they said, 'Do something like Treats! because you love it so much.' And her friends were like, 'Yes!'"

Thicke also picked out one of his video's stars from Treats!, adding, "We showed Treats! issue 3 with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover to the director (Diane Martel) and she said, 'That's our girl!' And she was cast. I wanted to give homage where homage was due. We wanted to pay it all forward about our inspiration from Treats! for the Blurred Lines video."
