    This is some serious money for a shit song.

    ****************************
    The second week of trial has damages experts opening up about closely-guarded financial secrets.


    As the Blurred Lines trial resumed, jurors got an inside peek at the financial success of the song credited to Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I

    Both sides agree with an accounting statement that attributes $16,675,690 in profits for "Blurred Lines," which was the biggest hit of 2013. According to testimony, $5,658,214 went to Thicke, $5,153,457 was given to Williams, and $704,774 came to T.I. The record companies (Interscope, UMG Distribution and Star Trak) took home the rest with an executive at Universal Music testifying that overhead costs on the creation of "Blurred Lines" accounted for $6.9 million.

    Notoriety?

    They are successful models. I'm sure the publicity helped them with more modeling work and not bit-parts as "actresses."

    Update: Blondie did have a minor part on 2 1/2 Men. Apparently, she has more modeling work since the video came out. She was Playboy's Playmate of the Month in 10/2009, so she was not an unknown to all.

    Wonder how much of the promotional costs went to Howard for "weaving" the ad into multiple segments of the show.
