Let’s review Robin Thicke’s year in 2013, shall we? His song “Blurred Lines” was quite the summer hit, and even more of a controversy. Not only did the lyrics have some up in arms, but all hell broke loose when Rob let Miley Cyrus twerk all up on him during a performance of the tune at the VMAs. To top it all off, an oh-so-scandalous pic of him grabbing a mystery girl’s booty surfaced. Surprised that his wife Paula Patton left him? I’m not either.
In February of this year, Paula separated from her husband of nine years. But, it looks like Robby applies the “Blurred Lines” theory to all aspects of his life and doesn’t seem to understand that no means no.
In recent months, Robin has been on a campaign to win back his wife. First, he announced that he was releasing his seventh album named after his estranged wife. He then made the 2014 Billboard Music Awards his personal soapbox as he sang his new single “Get Her Back” and then said during his acceptance speech, “Most importantly, I’d like to thank my wife for her love and support, and for putting up with me for all these years.”
In case that wasn’t enough, Thicke released the music video today for “Get Her Back.” I’ll spare you the agony of having to watch it for yourselves, Upper East Siders. It’s Thicke– bloody and bruised–accompanied by angry and sad flashes of text messages from a beautiful brunette, who looks just like his estranged wife.
I have to wonder, though, is this all just a nicely choreographed marketing ploy to repair his skeez-ball image or does he actually think this will work?
