Just after Robin Thicke was caught with his hand all over the proverbial cookie jar, Robin and his wife Paula Patton did a loved-up joint-interview together. To be fair, the interview was probably done months before Robin got caught publicly groping some club girl (who sold her story to the tabloids). I judged Robin and Paula’s marriage, and a lot of you yelled at me about it, saying it was their business and whatever makes them happy, etc. Which… yeah, you’re right to a certain extent. If they want an open marriage, fine. That’s their business. It becomes my business when Robin’s side-pieces sell their stories to the tabloids. And it becomes my business when Paula and Robin are trying to do some kind of damage-control PR to help their images by talking up their marriage too. With that in mind, here are some excerpts from Thicke’s latest interview:
Even the lines in Robin Thicke’s marriage are blurred. The singer calls his union to wife Paula Patton “the greatest love of the century, and the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood,” in a new interview with Star.
“I knew she was special the night I met her,” said the R&B singer, whose father is Growing Pains star Alan Thicke. “I was only 14, but she was already the most special girl. As a relationship progresses, you fall in love again in so many deeper ways,” said Robin, who appeared alongside his stunning model wife in the video for his 2006 hit, Lost Without U. “You realize that you need each other and you can’t live without each other.”
Thicke took it in stride when asked about the photo in which he was goosing a fan following a MTV VMAs bash last month.
“My only comment about the so-called scandalous photo would be that my wife and I are perfectly in love and very happily married. So, no complaints there.”
Asked how he and his wife would explain, to their 3-year-old son Julian, his more salacious work — including cavorting in front of nude models in the mega-hit Blurred Lines video, and being on the receiving end of Miley Cyrus’ now-famous VMAs twerking — Robin, brushed it off as an occupational hazard.
“We’re not teachers and lawyers,” he said. “Mommy has shown her naked body for roles and Daddy has been around naked bodies, it’s just what we do.”
“I’m sure he’ll get a little ribbing at school, but at least Mommy looks great naked and Daddy’s song was a hit!
“…When asked about the photo in which he was goosing a fan following a MTV VMAs bash last month…”? Er, “goosing”? Is that what it was? “Goosing” suggests friendliness, a prank amongst acquaintances, something harmless. Robin Thicke was flat-out groping that club girl. And she says that he was trying to bang her in the bathroom too.
As for “the greatest love of the century, and the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood”… ugh. Dude, everybody thinks that you have an open marriage and you and your wife go trolling for randoms for threesomes. We don’t need to sugar-coat it.
