Robin Thicke named sexist of the year

Robin Thicke has topped a list of the most sexist people of 2013.

The singer bagged the ungainly title as a result of his hit track 'Blurred Lines' and its nude-themed video.

The clip sees Thicke perform alongside a trio of topless women as they pose for the camera and strut their stuff.

The sexist of the year honour was selected by End Violence Against Women Coalition, who ran a poll.

They said: "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. Sexism might be de rigeur for some music industry 'creatives' but the times they are a-changin'."

The group added that Thicke would be sent a download voucher for Aretha Franklin's classic track 'Respect' as a prize.

British Prime Minister David Cameron meanwhile came second on the list.
