Robin Thicke says ‘Blurred Lines’ is about wife Paula Patton: ‘She’s my good girl’

Robin Thicke Paula Patton

“Blurred Lines” is still running hot on my iPod shuffle after dominating as a major summer hit. Of course there’s the controversy about the lyrics being kind of “rapey,” but I honestly think that there are a lot of pop songs out there that transmit the rapey vibe to a much greater agree. I tried to hate the video, but Robin and the ice cream cone get me every damn time.

All along, Robin has alluded to how “Blurred Lines” was supposed to be making fun of three “old” dudes (that is, himself, Pharrell, and T.I.) standing on a porch yelling, “Hey hey hey!” at hot young things. A new wrinkle has appeared in the equation. We’ve already heard about how Robin and Paula Patton probably have an open marriage, and she doesn’t mind when he gropes young blondes and gets off on their young age. Now Robin reveals that “Blurred Lines” is actually about Paula:

“I don’t think people got it. I wrote ["Blurred Lines"] about my wife … she’s my good girl. And I know she wants it because we’ve been together for 20 years.”

[From BBC X1Live]

*record scratch*

These two are definitely freaky together. Dare I say their marriage sounds kind of hot? I couldn’t handle it, but hey (hey hey), if it makes them happy, and no one gets hurt…

    Next week the song will be about his dog. He knows he wants it, “it” being a milkbone. Stop explaining this typical R&B record and move on please.

  2. V4Real says:

    Ok Robin I have defended this song to death but even I gave a side-eye to that claim.

  3. epiphany says:

    What a load of bull – too bad the British reporter didn’t know enough about the song to challenge him. The song is clearly about a guy taking a woman from another guy – whether she wants to go or not. How is it about his wife, if they’ve been together for 20 years? Did he steal her away from a guy during 10th grade study hall?
    It’s a horrible song anyway – oh, for the days when musicians played instruments, and only people who could carry a tune sang.

    What is it about this man that gives me the skeeves? Even before his VMA performance and post-performance ass-grab. Before I heard the song or saw the video. Before all of it. I was skeeved out. And now this just seems…gross. He grosses me out.

  5. Jayna says:

    The video concept was about three old men looking at hot babes, not the song itself when written. He probably took some inspiration from Paula, as all his music does, but the whole song isn’t about Paula by any stretch of the imagination.

  6. BreeinSEA says:

    I’ll say it again, I loved her in Idlewild. He has a case of the vibes….

  7. Dani2 says:

    I don’t like him much but they do seem happy together and they’ve been together a long time but whatever they’ve got going on seems to be working for them so no pearl-clutching for me with regards to their “arrangement” (whatever that might be).

  8. mommak918 says:

    He grosses me out…but I still find him sexy and charming.

    ::head down in shame::

    Idk what it is…..Ive got issues.
    That said, Id NOT hook up if given a chance…Id just giggle and blush and then break a sweat and run away like a little girl.

  9. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    Wow, where have I been! When did they get married? :) I think Paula is one of the great beauties in the world today.

  10. Mandy says:

    Hey, I bet you anything that they’ll be together forever! I do think they both love each other very much. Like you said, whatever works for them.

  11. diva says:

    They are a hot couple. Its a fun catchy song. I don’t care who it’s about.

  12. jilly says:

    I love him. Have always loved him, even before he became uber-famous because of this silly song. And yes I love the song, even though it is silly. I was once that girl who knew I was hot and teased guys while giving up nothing. I was once that kind of good girl. So I totally get this song. Some girls are c**k-teasers. I now because I once was. This song is calling me (us) out. Truth!

  13. I Want To Live In New York says:

    I hate the phrase “good girl”.

    I work in a gas station and its always men who say to me, “oh your such a good girl for doing …. (my job)”. I always want to punch them, it feels so patronizing. I hate it!

    • Runs with Scissors says:

      God YES, thank you! I can’t stand it when people say good girl to me, or even when they refer to me as a girl, as I’m an adult.

      Could you imagine them saying that to a MAN doing their job?

      “Wow, you’re such a good boy!” they’d get pounded for being condescending idiots, and with good reason.

  14. RJ says:

    I’m sure she’s tiny like most of the other celebs, but I like how she looks super sexy curvy in her photos, not anorexic. She looks like she actually eats real food, and is very healthy & proud of her body and her smile seems 100% genuine. They do seem happy together, so I have no judgment on whatever relationship parameters they have.

  15. Madriani's Girl says:

    Spin it all you like, Robin, you still looked like a d-bag letting Miley Virus grind on you like that.

  16. Greata says:

    Why is it this guy get shat upon while Mr.Skeevy himself aka Justin Timberlake gets a pass?

  17. bettyrose says:

    His wife is HOT. If they do have an open marriage she’s probably hittin’ more strange than he is.

  19. Madriani's Girl says:

    Why does he always stand like he’s posing for a Sears catalogue??? AWKWARD!!!

  20. Shelby says:

    THIS ^^ I was thinking the exact same thing Madriani’s Girl. He has a very strange stance

  21. nico says:

    They sure are trying to sell the image of a happy marriage. I smell trouble.

  22. some bitch says:

    Oh Robin, so full of it. Too bad he won’t really admit the song is about his inability to write a hit without ripping off Marvin Gaye.

  23. Carmelita says:

    Gag. I’m sick of hearing about this creep’s sex life.

  24. Jen'sMom says:

    My favorite drag queen group, DWV did a parody of this called Blurred Bynes. Check it out. MUCH better than the original!

  25. Snowpea says:

    Well I know I am in the minority, but freakn hell, I LOVE these two!

    Ya just know that a dinner party at their house would be followed by dessert wine, lines, spliffs, hot tubs etc etc ;)

  26. MegG says:

    Where did this guy come from? Have never heard of him until recently

  27. snappyfish says:

    “my good girl” sounds like he’s talking about his dog.

    these two are gross.

  28. Snappyfish says:

  29. RHONYC says:
