Robin Thicke has descended so deep into a struggle pool of broken love dreams, that he’s close to drowning. Truthfully, it’s pretty hard to watch this man beg and plead for his wife in such a public way, especially since it doesn’t appear to be working. Thicke will release his seventh studio album next week, aptly titled Paula. If the lyrics to the lead single, “Get Her Back,” ring true then the “Blue-Eyed Soul Singer” has lots to be sorry about:
“I never should shave 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.”
“Forever” is a long time, but there’s clearly no limit to what Mr. Thicke is willing to do to get his lady love back. Patton doesn’t seem to be paying it much attention (not publicly, at least). If public performances, an entire album, and making himself look pretty crazy in that “Get Her Back” video isn’t enough to change her mind, it might just be a lost cause. Hopefully not though.
