Ok, I have to admit, I was sad to hear this news. Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton are ending their marriage after eight and a half years. The two have been together since they were 14 and have been married since 2005 – a long time by anyone’s standards, let alone Hollywood’s. Songs like Lost without you, Wanna love you girl, and others always seemed so much sweeter knowing that these two had been together since they were kids.
Needless to say, I was secretly hoping these were all just rumors (I know, such a romantic at heart lol). However, the couple released a statement to People magazine saying “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”
The split happens among rumors of cheating (Thicke was photographed snuggling with a mystery woman in a Paris nightclub, and there was an image of his hand inching up Lana Scolaro‘s skirt after the VMAs) that began since his racy video for Blurred Lines and the scandalous performance with Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMAs. Since the announcement, Thicke has been telling everyone that he’s trying to get his wife back, even singing Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together during his concert in Atlantic City. We’re hoping that works out for him.
That said, we’ve put together a collection of epic lyrics and lines we feel celebrate the complexity of Robin Thicke. The quotes cover the naughty, nice and everything in between. Some of these seem a little awkward now that the couple has split, but hey, they’ll “always be best friends”. Others made us.. .well, wonder.
At any rate, writing this ended up being a lot more nostalgic and hilarious than we thought it’d be.
