Unlike in 2013, things don’t seem to be looking up for “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke this year.
As if being snubbed in every category at the Grammys, despite having one of the biggest songs last year wasn’t tough enough, losing your high school sweetheart of almost a decade in the midst of that, pretty much takes the cake as Robin’s biggest (albeit expected) letdown.
But the biggest question is… shouldn’t we (or he) have seen this coming? My answer: A big fat oh-my-God-are-you-kidding-me yes!
Don’t get me wrong, I love Robin Thicke. The man is handsome. He’s good-looking with a voice that makes my hormones quiver.
But allowing a 20-something named Miley Cyrus shake what little booty she has on your pelvis and on live television while your then-wife is at home nursing your child is completely unacceptable.
Oh yeah, and what about that alleged cheating scandal you were reportedly involved in this year, huh Rob? It’s repulsive, and the divorce that came about from this sort of malarkey was predictable and validated.
And yet with all that’s happened, what shocks me the most is how long his now ex-wife Paula Patton waited before she cut ties with Robin.
I’ll admit that nine years of marriage is pretty difficult to break, especially with a child. I could only imagine flushing almost 10 years of memories with a man down the drain. That’s excruciatingly tough.
But still, how does a man go from the faithful hubby with the panty-dropping voice to a panty-scrounging douchebag in over a year (allegedly!). Too harsh? Don’t think so.
You don’t get on stage and allow some little girl to practically grind up on you one day, and then allegedly go out partying with other chicks another day.
It’s even more offensive that Robin only accepts what he’s doing as wrong after Paula divorced him by staging some cheesy apology during one of his concerts.
This will certainly be the biggest regret of his life, and will have to do more than that to win back her affection. He’s seriously going to have to do something big: I’m talking building a statue out of roses and high school love letters type of big.
Even though it’s only been a few months since their big divorce went public, it’s hard to believe that Robin is as happy as he claims to be in the media. I will say this though, if he’s going to milk this moment for anything, it’d better be for some damned good music material for the future.
I don’t want to hear any more Kendrick Lamar or any other rap bullcrap either, I want that soulful R&B boy who used to sing Lost Without You to me with the lights off. I want sensual Robin back, and hopefully he’ll bring that old flame into his next record.
Until then, Robin, call me. My door is always open if you need a therapy session (just kidding… #totallynotkidding).
