We've got to face facts: we're living in a brave new world of free-flowing information, and age restrictions or movie-style ratings simply won't keep our children away from inappropriate materials. If anything, these hollow forms of censorship only delay serious parental conversations that are just plain inevitable.

No doubt like a lot of people by now, I've had a quick go at playing the two songs back to back, chucking on Gaye's Got To Give It Up followed by T&P's Blurred Lines, and vice versa. A quick go at playing judge and jury. And, well, yeah they do sound pretty similar. Tempo, the syncopated rhythm, the vocal pitch, even - arguably - the yukky sexism. But hey, what do I know?

Censorship Is a Subjective Thing

Horace Trubridge

Art and freedom of expression go hand in hand. I might find the lyrics to the Exodus song abhorrent but I would defend the bands right to explore their art form and challenge perceptions, and locking up a fan for posting lyrics on a Facebook wall is clearly bonkers.

Maybe it's because of the World Cup keeping everyone stimulated past their bed time (and who couldn't see Tim Howard play and not be inspired?) but the silly season hasn't really come round yet, with little of this week's news being especially soft or frivolous.

Enrique casually leans on one woman's nearly naked bottom, while another woman grinds hers into his right ear. He buries his handsome face in the crevice of the first woman's arse. The camera pans across a room filled with women in bikinis, lacy lingerie, and see-through underwear. The men are fully clothed.
