Robin Thicke believes his hit single Blurred Lines is being banned by "people who don't understand the song".
"I don't think people got it out here [in the UK] in those positions of power," he told Newsbeat at 1Xtra Live in Liverpool.
His comments come after an advert featuring the song and models from the video was banned from daytime TV by the Advertising Standards Authority.
The singer was speaking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Nesta McGregor.
