Robin Thicke is set to release a new album on July 1st, aptly named “Paula,” since the entire thing is a misguided attempt to win back his wife, Paula Patton. Naturally, Thicke put out a video for his first single titled “Get Her Back,” and it’s, well… just watch.
We’ve got a few ideas about what might be happening in this video, but no matter which way you look at it, it’s not great:
1. He included actual text messages that Paula had sent him during their split, which is a gross invasion of privacy.
2. He included fake text messages which drag Paula even further into this mess that she probably (hopefully) wants to completely avoid.
3. She’s totally in on it and they’ve already scheduled their reconciliation for right before her next movie comes out, in which case we just don’t get them at all.
A word of advice Robin: if you genuinely want to win back Paula, for starters may we recommend not making a music video where you have other women’s hands all over your body. Also, step away from the spotlight for a little while and be quiet. No one wants their dirty laundry aired all over the internet. In publicly expressing your sadness and regret, you are exploiting Paula’s hurt and anger in exchange for downloads and video views. You don’t have to give up on her, but for your wife’s sake, keep this part of your private life private.
