The 37 year-old singer was instantly abused by his twitter followers, who mainly slammed him for constantly trying to salvage his broken relationship with his estranged wife Paula Patton.
Robin Thicke may have thought that giving his Twitter followers the chance to ask him questions was a good idea...but he was very wrong.
The 37 year-old singer was scheduled to take part in a Q&A Twitter chat on Tuesday afternoon (July 1st) to promote his latest album 'Paula.'
For fans to post their questions they had to include the hashtag #AskThicke in their tweets, but as soon this was launched it was clear the majority of his followers were not interested in the album.

The 37 year-old singer dedicated a performance of 'Forever Love' to his estranged wife. "I miss you and I'm sorry," he said just before singing.
Robin Thicke is still trying to salvage his broken relationship with his estranged wife Paula Patton.
The 37 year-old singer's most recent attempt to get back together with the 38 year-old actress occurred at this Sunday's BET awards in an onstage tribute.
Thicke performed a love song from his new album, aptly titled 'Paula,' for the sold-out audience at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater, as well as the millions of viewers.
Robin Thicke used the BET stage for the latest in a series of apologies. It didn't work.
Robin Thicke made some choices at the BET award and, well, some of it worked, at least. Thicke exposed his vulnerable side, yet again, during his time onstage. Thicke performed his ballad Forever Love, accompanying himself on the piano. More importantly, before the teary-eyed performance, he offered yet another dedication to estranged wife Paula Patton.
Robin Thicke seems to have missed the memo.
"Good evening, my name is Robin Thicke, I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, 'I miss you, and I’m sorry.' This is called 'Forever Love,'" he called out from the stage of the Nokia Theater on Sunday.
On the eve of the award show, BET has announced a performance by Lifetime Achievement honoree Lionel Richie.
It’s almost time for the BET awards and tonight’s show promises some memorable moments. Lionel Richie has been tapped to perform during the annual award show, as well as being this year’s Lifetime Achievement honoree. He joins this year’s lineup, which also includes stars like Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, Nicki Minaj, John Legend and Drake.
Richie is being honored for over four decades of transformational music.
Currently in the fifth decade of his career, Richie’s list of achievements is quite impressive. He has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and won five Grammy awards. His music has changed the face of soul and R&B, but Richie frequently crosses genre lines to experiment with pop, soft rock and even country.

Robin Thicke wants to get back together with Paula Patton, and he's naming his new album after her.
Somebody might need to give Robin Thicke an intervention. The Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling artist has ruled the charts in the past year, with his hit singles like ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Give It 2 You,’ but music seems to be the only thing that’s been working out for him lately.
Robin Thicke's new single is called 'Get Her Back'
Earlier this year, it was said that Thicke’s high school sweetheart and wife of nearly ten years, Paula Patton, would be seeking a divorce, and Thicke isn’t taking it well. In an effort to reconcile the relationship, there have been numerous attempts made by him that includes dedicating live performances to her. Even though he’s been quoted telling People Magazine that he’s “much happier” following the split, his actions speak otherwise – especially in regards to his new music.

Calling an album after the name of an estranged wife is certainly weird but it pales in comparison to some of music's most horrific album titles.
In perhaps the most audacious and downright ridiculous move the music business has witnessed in the last few years, singer Robin Thicke has announced his new album will carry the title of Paula, which by some strange coincidence just happens to be the name of his estranged wife- actress Paula Patton.
Thicke and Paula in more happy circumstances.
To say such a public declaration of love is cringe-worthy would be an understatement, it is such a trite attempt at reconciling with his wife that is seems like something straight out of Spinal Tap. You can imagine the album title sitting quite comfortably alongside the likes of Smell The Glove and Shark Sandwich. As if that wasn’t irksome enough, Thicke’s debut single from the album is entitled "Get Her Back” and it sees the ageing crooner positively straining to exude as much heartfelt sincerity as he can before he gives himself a heart attack.
The 37 year-old singer pays tribute to his wife, Paula Patton, while being prized at the award ceremony, despite announcing their split almost three months ago.
Robin Thicke is still trying to win back Paula Patton.
The 37 year-old singer and the 38 year-old actress announced their split this past February after 8 year of marriage, but it doesn't seem to be completely over yet.
Thicke made a loving gesture in front of a packed audience at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas when his hit track 'Blurred Lines' won the prize for Top Hot 100 Song, on Sunday (May 18th).
Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Arcade Fire bring life to New Orleans Jazz Festival 2014.
It's that time of year again where New Orleans go all out to prove they are one of the most culturally rich cities in North America with their annual two-weekend event, the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
The Jazz Festival has expanded to two long weekends since its inaugural year in 1970, meaning that more people than ever can get the chance to enjoy the fine music culture of Louisiana. The Queen of Gospel Mahalia Jackson appeared at the first event alongside renowned orchestral composer Duke Ellington, and from then on the festival has gone from strength to strength and has never once lost the spirit that has made it so loved.
Ford's appearance on JKL Monday was almost painful to watch.
What was Toronto Mayor Rob Ford doing on Jimmy Kimmel last night? Anyone who’s been following the story can already tell it was related to his drinking problem. Apparently, he was intended to restore his public image and had been courted by the show for months. On the night, however, things didn’t quite turn out as expected. The jokes ranged from rather harsh gags about Ford’s weight, to what some people would deem a completely inappropriate joke about Ford’s drinking habits. Check out this particular gem:
Kimmel told Ford that if he’s an alcoholic, and drinking enough that he would try crack cocaine in his 40s, “and you don’t remember it, maybe that’s something that you might want to think about, like talking to somebody.”

Robin Thicke tells his fans, "I'm looking forward to getting back on out on the road," after he was forced to cancel a show on Tuesday due to separating from his wife Paula Patton.
But the 37 year-old singer is already thinking of the future, and that means more touring.
Due to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Thicke's marriage, he has had to cancel one of his shows scheduled for Tuesday (Feb 25th), at the Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina.
Did the past 12 months foreshadow Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's split?
After twenty years together and nearly nine years of marriage Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton haveannounced their separation.For some it might come as a shock considering the pair have been together since they were teenagers, but others will see this one as a long time coming, especially when you considering Robin’s roller coaster year.
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton in happier times
It all started with the release of ‘Burred Lines’ in March 2013, the single propelled Thicke from little known R&B singer to household name. A lot of the song’s attention came from its provocative and suggestive lyrical content, which many objected to, calling it misogynistic. However the other controversy was the song’s explicit video which featured full frontal naked women dancing with the singer. People were quick to wonder whether the singer’s actress wife was comfortable with the raunchy video. However Patton was quick to let everybody know that her husband had her full support, appearing on chat show ‘Chelsea Lately’, Mrs Thicke said the video originally made her a, ’little bit jealous’, but then she ‘wanted to jump his bones.’ She also confessed that it was in fact her who convinced Thicke to release the uncensored version of the video, telling him she liked it ‘better than the clothed version.’

At 50, Michael Jordan has announced that he is to be a dad for the fourth time!
While Michael Jordan’s sports career is behind him, he is entering a whole new stage of life, as the baller and his wife Yvette Prieto have announced that they are expecting their first child. This is according to People, which got the low down straight from Jordan’s reps. 50-year-old Jordan and Prieto, a Cuban American model met in 2008 in Miami, but only tied the knot this year at a Palm Beach ceremony, attended by 500 of Jordan and Prieto’s closest friends and relatives – you know, an intimate affair.
Hundreds attended Jordan and Prieto's wedding ceremony.
But the reception was even more impressive, with 1,500 guests pouring into a nearby golf couse community in Jupiter, where Jordan owns a 38,000-square-foot home. Among the attendees were celebrities like Usher and the now infamous Robin Thicke. They’ve been planning for months and months,” a source told PEOPLE of the couple’s all-out wedding. “He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.”
There was also Ron Burgundy, huge wins for Eminem and Katy Perry and a wardrobe malfunction from Iggy Azalia
Miley Cyrus was always going to star in the Monday morning gossip headlines when she was first announced as a performer at the 2013 MTV EMAs. The question was: what will she do? Besides 'twerking' with a dwarf during the award show's opening act - which included a rendition of her hit 'We Can't Stop' - there really wasn't that much to write home about regarding her performances. It was what she did to celebrate winning the Best Video award that won her the headlines.

Did Robin Thicke rip off Marvin Gaye on 'Blurred Lines'?
Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' was easily the biggest song of the year - it will officially go down as one of the biggest selling songs of the year, however, a legal battle about the origins of the pop hit has broken out.
The family of Marvin Gaye's claims in a lawsuit that Thicke's song plagiarizes the late soul star's 1977 track 'Got to Give It Up.' Gaye's children Nona and Frankie said Thicke has a "fixation" on their father's work and clearly ripped his work for Blurred Lines.
In an interview with GQ magazine, shortly after the release of "Blurred Lines", Thicke said: "[Producer] Pharrell [Williams] and I were in the studio and I told him that one of my favourite songs of all time was Marvin Gaye's 'Got to Give It Up'. I was like, 'Damn, we should make something like that, something with that groove'. Then he started playing a little something and we literally wrote the song in about a half hour and recorded it." Hmmm, sounds pretty cut and dry to us.

Hugh and Crystal Hefner celebrated Halloween on Saturday (26th October) by dressing as Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. Paris Hilton also showed up dressed in an outfit inspired by Cyrus' grey teddy.
Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke inadvertently created a horror story three months before Halloween. Their performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in August has inspired the costumes of Hugh Hefner and his wife Crystal Harris at the Playboy Mansion's Halloween party on Saturday 26th October.
Paris Hilton's costume was inspired by Miley Cyrus' outfit at the MTV VMAs.
Hefner posted two photographs on his Twitter: one a selfie of the couple with Crystal holding a giant foam hand up to the camera; and the other with Crystal bending over in front of her husband. Hefner added the hash tag "twerking". Crystal, despite being a former 'Playmate' and glamour model, dressed more modestly than Cyrus had at the VMAs. She wore a short yellow dress as opposed to Cyrus' decision at the awards in August to wear a flesh coloured bikini. Hefner wore a striped suit with Thicke style sunglasses. It appears the costume was actually a prison outfit which Hefner had adapted with sunglasses, a gold chain and a microphone.
Hollis Jane was a bear dancer during Miley's performance; she speaks out against the humiliation she experienced.
It's a tough industry, show business, let alone if you have a trait or physical characteristic that leaves you out of the running for most parts before you've even auditioned. This is the experience that Hollis Jane and plenty of other 'Little Person' actors working in the industry face as they try to make a name for themselves without agreeing to humiliation or degradation.
Miley Cyrus' MTV VMAs Performance Has Received Yet More Criticism.
Hollis was hired to be a backing dancer in Miley Cyrus' controversial MTV VMAs performance. Dressed as a bear, she danced along to Miley and Robin Thicke singing and has revealed that it was one of the worst experiences of her life. Prompted by a friend's Facebook status commending Cyrus for hiring a little person guitarist in her SNL performance, Jane felt it was time the world knew how she felt.
Robin Thicke talks to Oprah Winfrey about the infamous VMA performance with Miley Cyrus.
Cyrus has rode the momentum of the criticism to create a media frenzy but Thicke has since distanced himself from the infamous performance.
According to Us Weekly, in a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey the ‘Blurred Lines’ singer said, “People ask me if I twerk, and I'm like, Listen, I'm the twerkee. I don't twerk.”
Robin Thicke, in a recent interview, discussed his performance at the MTV VMAs. He stated the performance, with Miley Cyrus, was sexually provocative and controversial in order to gain publicity and get people talking.
Robin Thicke claimed his performance at the MTV Video Music Awards was deliberately controversial and intended to make people talk.

Robin Thicke, in a recent interview, seemed pleased with the controversy created by his and Miley Cyrus' performance at the MTV VMAs in August. If anything the whole incident appears to be a deliberate publicity coup (as if we didn't already know). Thicke is no longer disguising his attention seeking performance, in an interview with Vanity Fair he said "everybody knows who I am now because I let Miley Cyrus twerk in front of me."

Robin Thicke's track banned for its perceived promotion of forced sex.
The negaTIve publicity surrounding Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' has reared its head again after Edinburgh University's students' union has ruled that the song is forbidden to be played on the premises.
Robin Thicke's Song Has Been Banned From A University.
R&B singer Thicke's track has been branded as "rapey," with the suggestion that it promotes non-consensual sex in its suggestive lyrics. "I know you want it/I know you need it," sings Thicke, hissing "just wanna get nasty" thereby fuelling the furore around his No.1 hit song.
40 million views for Miley's hammer-licking video.
Miley Cyrus has made her next big move after last month's MTV VMAs twerking performance with Robin Thicke that had the internet chattering and eyebrows lost into hairlines. Such was the backlash to former Disney star Cyrus' dance routine - including Anna Wintour pulling a Vogue Christmas cover - that you'd think Miley would have toned down her raunchy performances.
Miley Receives More Attention Now Than Ever After Her Dramatic Transformation.
Well, perhaps spurred by the sudden spotlight upon her young self, Miley's back with a brand new music video and the follow-up to the summer's bit hitting 'We Can't Stop.' What has really set the gears of the internet gossiping in motion again is the 20 year-old's performance in the video. True, she's not twerking this time but she's still in her underwear (and sometimes out of it) and wagging that ever-present tongue of hers.
Katy Perry’s pop anthem Roar is justifying its name and storming the Billboard chart. The motivational tune, which features lines like: I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire/Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR” really couldn’t have been anything less than a chart topper. Roar has finally dethroned Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines in the Billboard chart and that’s even before the official video for the single has come out, though Perry has already released a trailer. The song is Perry’s eighth number 1 on the Hot 100 list and it concludes Thicke’s record breaking 12-week reign.
Check out Perry's wild teaser for the Roar video below.
The singer has maintained his spot atop the Billboard album chart for a second week running despite strong pushes from new releases
Luke Bryan sure is having one heck of a 'party' as he celebrates holding on to the number one spot on the Billboard album chart for a second week running with the LP Crash My Party. The country star managed to battle off competition from a number of new releases, but he held strong and kept his place atop the album charts for one more week.
Bryan is at No. 1 for a second week
According to Billboard, the Nielsen SoundScan shows that Bryan's album is around 15,000 copies better off than his nearest competitor; John Mayer's Paradise Valley, a debut album in the album chart. It wasn't just Mayer whose latest release Bryan was fighting off either, as new releases; Three Kings by R&B supergroup TGT, Jimmy Buffett's Songs From St. Somewhere and rapper and Odd Future affiliate Earl Sweatshirt's debut album, Doris. Another debut hip-hop release, Trap Lord by A$AP Ferg, also entered the top ten, coming in a nine.

Miley Cyrus' 2013 MTV VMA performance continues to raise eyebrows even amongst her friends. Kelly Osbourne has requested the 20-year-old singer put her tongue away, meanwhile her father has been supportive stating "I love her unconditionally" and "she's still my little girl."
Not even Miley Cyrus' friends have kept quiet about her performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs on Sunday night (25th August). The 20-year-old appeared on stage singing her summer hit 'We Can't Stop'. After twerking with human sized teddy-bears, the singer stripped down to a nude coloured bikini in order to grind against Robin Thicke. Thicke joined her on stage to sing, with her help, his single 'Blurred Lines'. Throughout Cyrus' performance with 36-year-old Thicke, she acquired a giant foam hand with which she mimed sexually explicit acts with.
Miley Cyrus on the red carpet at the 2013 VMAs.
From the reaction on the faces of the audience - including Will Smith and his family- they were as appalled with Cyrus' performance as we were. Cyrus' friend, Kelly Osbourne, would agree too. Osbourne co-hosted E!'s Fashion Police recap for the VMAs, she said of Cryus' performance "Miley's my friend and I love her, and I have her back no matter what, but as her friend I'm going to tell her: put your f**king tongue in your mouth. I love you, but just put your tongue in your mouth."

Poor Willow and Jaden Smith didn't know where to look when Miley ripped her clothes off during her VMAs twerk-fest.
Miley Cyrus didn't win any awards at Sunday night's MTV music video awards ceremony in Brooklyn and she was just one of loads of performers helping raise the roof at the annual celebration of musical artistry. However, her performance - of her No.1 hit 'We Can't Stop' and 'Blurred Lines' with Robin Thicke - helped secure Miley as the most talked about live act of the night.
Miley's VMAs Performance Provoked Plenty Of Horror.
It wasn't her music per say; by now we're used to her post-Hannah Montana drawl and themes of entitled hedonism. Rather it was her outfits, dancing and facial expression that provoked a roomful of eye-popping and jaw-dropping. She emerged from the chest of a giant bear and without a moment's pause, began to grind and twerk before entering into a rendition of 'We Can't Stop' whilst the 'bear-people' - as seen in the track's eyebrow-raising video - bobbed about whilst being twerked on by Miley.
What was Miley Cyrus thinking when she performed at the VMAs on Sunday (25th August)? Her bizarre and somewhat disturbing performance featured twerking, a nude coloured bikini and Robin Thicke stuffed into a striped suit.
Miley Cyrus performed at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (25th August) and managed to make the entire audience cringe. She appeared on stage performing a remix of her summer song 'We Can't Stop' and Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines'. Thicke joined her on stage with dancers in teddy bear costumes. If the ensemble wasn't bizarre enough, Cyrus' choice of outfit and props raised even the most liberal of eyebrows.
Miley Cyrus on the red carpet at the VMAs.
Cyrus initially appeared on stage clad in a bustier with a silver teddy bear face emblazoned on the front. She later stripped down, whilst performing with Thicke, to a strange flesh coloured bikini. She also acquired a giant foam hand which she preceded to use as a prop symbolising male genitalia. Cyrus continued to place herself, using Thicke as a prop this time, in sexually suggestive positions. Thicke appears to have poured himself into a black and white striped suit and, wearing a gold chain, looks like the epitome of sleaze.

Miley announced she was leaving early via Twitter. Was it a case of sore loser-itis or could she not stop her body twerking out of the door?
Miley Cyrus may not have won any MTV Video Awards last night at the dazzling Brookyln ceremony, but she surely provided one of the evening's most talked about performances as she twerked, ground, twerked and then twerked some more.
Miley's Tongue: More Famous Than The Singer.
For those unfamiliar with the term, 'twerking' refers to the dance move craze sweeping clubs and Miley's music videos where one's backside jiggles when one's hips are moved up and down quickly. Miley has virtually trademarked the routine and makes sure everyone knows how proficient she is in the art of the twerk by performing the move at every given opportunity.

Despite his settlement attempt, Thicke can't seem to get away from his copyright troubles.
Robin Thicke is keen to settle the dispute raised by Marvin Gaye’s family in regards to the similarity between Blured Lines and a few Gaye songs. The family in question, however, isn’t up for a settlement. According to Billboard, the Gaye family has rejected a six-figure offer from the singer. It’s important to note here that an official copyright dispute hasn’t been raised yet, but with the rejection of the preemptive settlement, it looks like the heirs of Marvin Gaye’s estate are just biding their time and possibly in the process of building a solid case against Thicke.
Thicke's settlement offer has been refused.
According to sources Frankie Christian Gaye, Marvin Gaye III and Nona Marvisa Gaye accused Thicke's "Blurred Lines" hit single of plagiarizing "Got To Give it Up," written and composed by Marvin Gaye, who died in 1984.While the Gaye family have not taken any official legal action as of yet, Thicke, along with collaborators Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr. (known under the moniker T.I.) filed a preemptive lawsuit on Aug. 15 in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.
The singer and his 'Blurred Lines' collaborators have taken the Gaye estate and Bridgeport Music to federal court following claims from both parties that he had stolen elements from their songs for his summer hit
Robin Thicke may have enjoyed having THE number one hit of the entire summer with 'Blurred Lines,' but the singer now is apparently locked in a legal battle over that very song following claims that it sounds very similar to two older tracks. Despite professing his love for Marvin Gaye and discussing the influence the singer has had on his career, this hasn't stopped Thicke and his 'Blurred Lines' collaborators T.I. and Pharrell Williams from taking Gaye's family to court following complaints that 'Blurred Lines' sounds strangely similar to Gaye's 'Got To Give It Up.'
Thicke may be a fan of Gaye and Funkadelic, but he also has a reputation to uphold
According to The Hollywod Reporter, who broke the story, the Gaye family had apparently threatened Thicke and co. with legal action over the similarities between his hit song and Marvin's 1977 track. A similar complaint had been made by the company Bridgeport Music, who represent the legendary funk band Funkadelic, with the company claiming that 'Blurred Lines' shares an uncanny resemblance to their track 'Sexy Ways.' Now both the Gaye Estate and Bridgeport Music will both legal action from Thicke, T.I. and Williams as the latter attempt to brush off any claims of plagiarism.
Robin Thicke is suing Marvin Gaye's family!
In order to protect the song - which will probably turn out to be the biggest of the year - Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr are going to court. A lawsuit filed on Thursday (August 15, 2013) by the trio against Marvin Gaye's family and Bridgeport Music concerned the similarities between 'Blurred Lines' and at least two songs, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Let us explain. The suit claims that the Gaye family is alleging the controversial song "feels" or "sounds" the same as Marvin's 'Got To Give it Up' and that the "Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work."

Miley Cyrus has finally conquered the UK singles chart.
Miley Cyrus has scored her first UK number one single with 'We Can't Stop,' which incidentally is her first Top 10 hit in the country.
The 20-year-old sold 128,000 copies of her new single last week to reach the top spot, ousting Swedish DJ Avicii and his hit track 'Wake Me Up'.
Miley had previously peaked in the UK singles chart at number three with See You Again in 2008 and at 11 in 2009 with The Climb and Party in the USA.

The single has followed up the tremendous success of his 'Blurred Lines' single with the immediate success of his new album
Robin Thicke is having one heck of a summer so far, seeing his single 'Blurred Lines' climb to the top of just about every singles chart across the globe. With the release of his new album, also titled Blurred Lines, the singer has continued his run of blurry success by landing straight at the number one spot in the Billboard Album Charts, a first for the R&B star in his more-than-a-decade-long career.
Thicke is experiencing the most successful period of his career
As reported by Billboard, Thicke has scored his first number one album at the sixth time of asking, shifting 177,000 copies since it was released last week (30 July). As expected, this success has also landed Thicke with his best week of album sales in his career, with his closest equivalent coming when 2008's Something Else managed 137,000 sales, landing it at the No. 3 spot. Interestingly enough, 2013 has proved to be the year of the comeback as Blurred Lines has become the sixth album to reach No. 1 more than a decade after the artist's debut album was released. Prior to him, Black Sabbath, Queens Of The Stone Age, Daft Punk, Gary Allan and Chris Tomlin all scored number ones with their new releases.
It's probably the best version of the song so far.
Love it or hate it, Blurred Lines is definitely the catchiest summer tune that’s come out in a while – and yet Fallon managed to make it catchier. Robin Thicke is the just the latest artist, whose music has received the Fallon treatment. The Fallon treatment in this case being a cover by Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, using kiddie instruments.
This video exists. Discuss.
Last year it was Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe (we may or may not still hum that one in private), but seeing grown men play metal blocks, metal spoons, a tiny xylophone and… some sort of musical banana thing really never gets old. Sidenote: the name of that toy is still a mystery, so let’s go with “shaky banana” for the time being. Oh and Black Thought rapping into a colorful maraca? Priceless.
Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' is finally out despite having lyrics branded as "rapey."
Though the title track from Robin Thicke's latest album Blurred Lines was disparaged by critics for seemingly promoting sexual violence with its worrysome lyrics, the album was released today in the USA and is expected to hit No.1 as quickly as it did upon its 15th July release in the UK. The lead single from the album, 'Blurred Lines', which featured rapper T.I. and Pharrell Williams was released in March but ignited the fury of anti-sexual violence campaigners when the music video debuted.
Robin Thicke: Negative Press Could Have Increased The Notoriety Of His Music & Boosted Sales.
The video depicts Thicke and the accompanying rap duo surrounded by scantily clad women who strut around waiting to be pawed at by the suited men. Thicke hit back at those who criticised him, insisting he was a man of faithfulness and respect towards women, having been with his now-wife Paula Patton since their high school days. However, branded as "rapey", the song sickened many who saw it as exploitative and objectifying women but the single, perhaps boosted by the swirling negative press, hit and held the top spot on the singles chart in 21 countries.
Robin Thicke could feature prominently on both the albums and singles charts by next week.
The sixth album from R&B singer Robin Thicke hits shelves today, though...it's kind of irrelevant, given all anyone cares about is the single, Blurred Lines, and its unrated video.
Could it possibly provide fans with anything more than the pop-tastic Billboard No.1 hit that will comfortably become the biggest selling single of the year?
Well, it turns out the album is pretty good, too.
