And I think Julian agrees.
The thing is, everything Robin Thicke says and does seems so gross and self-serving, and this little blurb is no different. The singer/songwriter (and I use that term loosely) talked about how when he and Paula Patton first separated in February 2014, he was going through a tough time. He conveniently didn’t mention that they broke up because he was a giant, philandering D bag, but whatev. After a lame attempt to win Paula back with the release of his album Paula and the equally lame lead single “Get Her Back,” he took an extended break from performing and writing music:
“I started songwriting and producing and singing professionally when I was 16, and I never really stopped until last year,” Thicke told Good Morning America on Aug. 12. “I took some time off to just be with my son and my family. It helps you gain perspective on what’s important in life.”
That time off included taking his mom, Gloria Loring, on their first vacation together in years with his son.
“I hadn’t gotten to take my mom on vacation for a long time, so it was really a magical trip for us,” he said. “I spent so much time with my son and that just made me realize what was most important.”
