(The Washington Post) – Because Robin Thicke appears to have absolutely no chill whatsoever when it comes to the dogged pursuit of actress Paula Patton, his wife who has chosen to separate herself from the R&B singer, parts of the Internet have taken up the mantle of Defenders of Paula.
The two, who have one son together, separated following years of rumors of infidelity and compromising photos of Thicke that painted the picture of a boozing, partying Lothario, albeit one with a very good voice.
Now Thicke is on a campaign to win back Patton’s affections vis-à-vis public begging in the service of capitalism: He’s releasing a new album today called “Paula.” Even if #GetHerBack doesn’t resurrect his marriage, Thicke will still make a profit from record sales and touring, so total win-win, right? Thicke’s first single, entitled “Get Her Back,” proclaims:
I never should have raised my voice or made you feel so small
I never should have asked you to do anything at all
I should have kissed you longer
I should have held you stronger
And I’ll wait for forever for you to love me again
