I suppose it should be comforting to know that Robin Thicke has retained enough human emotion and common sense to be embarrassed by his own behaviour. You see, he’s living it up now with his 20-year-old girlfriend, giving their dogs weed and basically being real winners. But there was a time when he wasn’t so much of a winner, because he was writing creepy songs and performing them at awards shows to get his ex-wife, Paula Patton, to take his cheating ass back just last year. And that was not cool.
From ET Online:
“I came home, and my best friend of 20 years, Craig Crawford, said, ‘I saw your BET performance,’” he recalls. “And I said: ‘Oh yeah! What did you think?’ You know — excited. And he goes: ‘I gotta be honest with you, buddy. You’re kind of playing yourself. You look like a sucker.’ And it hit me that I’d lost my perspective.”
“What I thought was romantic was just embarrassing,” he further explains. “And he said, ‘You should just go away for a while.’ So I shut everything down. I took some time off to be with my son, and to be with my family and close friends. And the more time I took off, the more everything became clear.”
“Look, my songwriting has always been autobiographical, and always will be,” he defends himself. “The Paula album was no different. I was struggling through my toughest time, and I decided to share it. … In hindsight, the only thing I would have done differently was, I wouldn’t have promoted it or sold it. I would have given it away. That would have kept the purity of the message intact.”
LOL, Robin Thicke fucking sucks. He’d better hope the royalties keep pouring in from “Blurred Lines”, because he’s finished, and I couldn’t be happier.
