Hot on the heels of his No. 1 hit with Robin Thicke, T.I. visited with the ladies of “The View” on Monday. Looking dapper in a designer suit, he spoke about the steamy video for “Blurred Lines.”
“The song is a celebration of women and their beauty, so I believe that the imagery had to coincide with the lyrics,” said a smirking Tip.
The hosts also brought up his real name (Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr.) and his VH1 reality show “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.”
He is currently on tour with Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz on the “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival,” but he doesn’t feel competition with his peers.
“Before there’s anything, I think there’s an extreme camaraderie and a mutual respect of one another’s talents and abilities.”
