No, that wasn't a typo. We meant "Sexist of the Year." Not Sexiest.

Robin Thicke racked up the title thanks to the End Violence Against Women Coalition, according to the Guardian, mainly because of the lyrics to "Blurred Lines," which have long been criticized for having a sexist tone.

The group also highlighted one gem in GQ to prove their point. "People say, 'Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?' I'm like, 'Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I've never gotten to do that before,'" Robin told the mag (jokingly, we hope).

For his grand prize, the coalition is sending Robin a voucher good for a download of Aretha Franklin's "Respect."

"Our heartfelt congratulations to a worthy winner Robin Thicke for both his concerted sexist efforts, and in the end the platform he created for rejection of the use of women as objects to promote mediocre pop," Coalition member Sarah Green told the Guardian. "Sexism might be de rigeur for some music industry 'creatives' but the times they are a-changin'."

Not surprisingly, Robin has yet to send a thank you note.
