This week, soul-pop singer Robin Thicke speaks in the new issue of Billboard Magazine about many things, like his upcoming album, and why he wasn't allowed to be on the cover of Vibe Magazine. He said in another interview with Vibe, he asked why he couldn't get the cover. Their response: they don’t have white artists on the cover; that the only white artist they’ve had on the cover was Eminem. Thicke replied with, "I guess if that’s what it is, it is what it is. And I respect that because I live in a house with a black woman."

Thicke didn't make it a big issue, but now fans and many others are lashing out to Vibe Magazine calling them "rasict" among many other things. As a subscriber of this magazine, I'm starting to have some second thoughts. Robin issued a final statement saying "You can’t always expect people to be as color-blind or open-minded as you want. What you can do is keep giving your heart and soul". His album, ''Something Else'' will be in stores later this year!
