The View: Robin Thicke Embarassing Romantic Gestures
Robin Thicke has been trying hard to get his wife Paula Patton back. That’s why he’s running around performing a song called “Get Her Back” and saying a lot of embarrassing things about wanting her back. Depending on your point of view, this either makes him a romantic hero or a crazy person using the weight of his celebrity to pressure his wife into coming back to him.
There was a very potent Party of Five season 6 episode about this very subject, where a guy tried to pressure Lacey Chabert’s character Claudia into dating him just because he sang a song for her in front of the whole school. She didn’t do it because sometimes, romantic gestures just aren’t appropriate and don’t melt hearts. You can’t force someone to love you. Robin Thicke should probably watch some Party of Five and check himself.
The View: Robin Thicke Getting His Wife Back
Robin Thicke said that getting his wife Paula Patton back has been a “work in progress.” “Right now, I’m just trying to be a great friend and a great father,” he said. He added that she’s “an amazing woman” and that it’s going to take more than the song to get her back.
The View: Robin Thicke Pressure
Guest co-host Abby Huntsman asked Robin Thicke what kind of pressure he was under to have his new album Paula be a success like Blurred Lines was. He said he was blessed that his album was a success but this album was more personal and “about sharing what I’ve been going through and trying to make her life a little bit better.”
Gag me with a spoon. Robin Thicke, here’s some advice: if you want your wife back, have a conversation. Communicate. Stop trying to use your celebrity to pressure her to come back and/or using your divorce to sell albums. Try and have a little dignity, man.
Life isn’t Say Anything and you’re not John Cusack. You can’t just hold up the proverbial radio outside of her window and hope it will work. It’s also a bit sick that you’re using the world to do that for you by trying to make this a number 1 hit. At least Taylor Swift never admits who any of her songs are about. This public spectacle is just embarrassing for you and for her.
