Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Robin Thicke Admitted in Deposition to Being High While Recording “Blurred Lines”

Wow. In a deposition back in April, Robin Thicke admitted to lying to the media and being high when he recorded his hit “Blurred Lines.”

The Hollywood Reporter obtained a copy of the transcript of the deposition, which was Robin’s defense against the family of legendary singer Marvin Gaye, who filed a lawsuit against Robin, along with Pharrell Williams (who wrote the song), accusing them of stealing Marvin’s classic “Got To Give It Up,” for “Blurred Lines.”

According to the transcript, Robin admitted under oath that it was actually Pharrell who wrote the song. “I was jealous and I wanted some of the credit,” he said. “I tried to take credit for it later because [Williams] wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself and I was envious of that.” He was asked if he was present while Pharrell made the track, and that’s when Robin admitted that he was completely gone anyway. “To be honest, that’s the only part where — I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio,” the singer recollected. “So my recollection is when we made the song, I thought I wanted…to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit. So I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was …I wanted some credit for this big hit. But the reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.” Robin also admitted to being high while doing press throughout 2013, but had since given up Vicodin, though not alcohol.

Robin’s defense has spoken out on the transcript being released. “Robin’s moment of personal vulnerability is being exploited in the hope of diverting attention from the obvious weakness of their legal claim,” Howard King, attorney, managing partner of King, Holmes, Paterno & Berliner, said to Us Weekly.

It’s crazy. Just last year Robin seemed to be on top of the world, and it’s almost like his life is just spiraling down hill. He lost his wife, he’s being sued, and now we find out that he was trying to mask his pain behind drugs and alcohol. It’s really sad. I’m hoping that he is able to bounce back.

Robin Thicke Cries, Makes Another Creepy Plea for Paula Patton

Robin Thicke cries and once again makes a creepy public plea for ex-wife Paula Patton. This time it went down at the BET awards. And yes, it’s creepy. It was possibly sweet the first time. Borderline the second time. Now? Now he’s done it at every opportunity and made a creepy video that makes him seem like a legitimately mentally unstable stalker.

Seriously, Robin Thicke really has to stop this ridiculousness.

Either 1) Robin Thicke really is obsessed and wants his wife back so badly that he wants to plead for another chance all the time or 2) Robin Thicke is a manipulative crazy person in need of help or 3) Robin Thicke is using this trickery as some sort of public sympathy campaign.

Either way, on a personal level, I wouldn’t want to make up – I’d be getting a restraining order.

I mean, he named his new album Paula.

Before the performance, Thicke told the audience:

“Good evening, my name is Robin Thicke, I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, ‘I miss you, and I’m sorry.’ This is called ‘Forever Love.'”

An audience member said that poor Robin was in quite the emotional state- crying before, during and after the performance.

In an effort to lighten the mood a bit after Robin Thicke’s performance, host Chris Rock said, “He’s singing like she don’t know him. I miss the other song, the one that sounded like Marvin Gaye.”

If you’re keeping count, by the way, it’s worth noting that Paula Patton has yet to respond to any of Robin Thicke’s public apologies. I actually find her ability to press the mute button enviable. I’d have lost my patience 5 apologies ago.

You know what I think, but what do you think? Sweet or creepy? Should she give it another go?

 

Robin Thicke Names New Album After Estranged Wife Paula Patton

Robin Thicke refuses to quit in his mission to get  Paula Patton back! The singer, who split with the actress earlier this year, is going as far as to even name his new album after her!

His rep confirmed the news to Us Weekly, saying that Robin’s upcoming album, which will be released July 1, will be called Paula. It will include the single “Get Her Back,” which Robin first sang at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards in May. As he introduced the song, Robin said, “All right, y’all, help me get her back.”

High school sweethearts, the couple announced their decision to part ways back in February, after almost 9 years of marriage. Rumor has it that it was Paula’s choice, and that Robin is desperately trying to save the marriage. Since the announcement was made, Robin has made several attempts publicly to get his woman back! Just days after their split, he dedicated a song to Paula at a concert in Fairfax, Va., telling the crowd, “For y’all that don’t know, me and my wife separated but I’m trying to get my girl back.”

Paula herself recently told Vanity Fair that there was and would always be a “deep love” between her and Robin. “We’ve known each other since we were teenagers,” she said. “All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there — always was, and always will be. He wasn’t my first kiss, but he was my first lots of other things.”

Rumors are flying that his recent naughty behavior on stage and at parties turned Paula away, but no one knows for sure. However, I don’t think songs and an album title is enough to get her back. In any relationship, ACTION is key. Let her see that you have really changed, and maybe she’ll strongly consider giving you another chance!

Paula Patton Opens Up About Robin Thicke in Vanity Fair

It was a surprise to some, but no big shocker to most when Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced plans to split in February, shortly after Miley Cyrus twerked on him at the MTV Video Music Awards, and then caught in a selfie cupping a fan’s butt. Many blamed Robin for the separation, and even he has come out and said that he was ” trying to get my girl back.” He told his audience at a show in Fairfax, Virginia, shortly after the split that “she’s a good woman,” before dedicating his hit song Lost Without U to her.

Paula opened up a little bit to Vanity Fair about her ex-partner of 20 years, who she met at an 18-and-under nightclub when she was 15 and he was 14. Before their first kiss, he sang Jodeci’s “Forever My Lady” to her, which he sings about in his song, “For The Rest of My Life.” Obviously, the serenade worked, because they lasted off and on for 20 years aftewards, and had a son, Julian, 4.  “He wasn’t my first kiss,” Paula said, “but he was my first lots of other things.” The actress didn’t openly say if the two would get back together. All she said was, “We’ve known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there—always was, and always will be.” Hmm….

Paula also spoke on her start in film. She actually first worked behind the scenes in film production after graduating from college. “I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, so I liked the other side of the camera,” the actress said. “It took until I was 27 to say, ‘You only have one life to live, so you might as well go and see if you can act.’ ” In her first year, she landed a part in Hitch, which starred Will Smith. Her latest project has Paula in Vancouver filming Warcraft, based on the online game series. “I’ve never been big into video games,” she admitted. “But the Warcraft script reads more like a complex, epic novel.”

I’m really hoping that Paula and Robin work things out! However, there’s probably more to the story than we as fans and readers see. It would be nice to see them reconcile, because I love seeing their chemistry and blatant love for each other, but, sometimes, it doesn’t work out. For now, Paula’s focused on her son and acting. For her, I might just check out that Warcraft film!

Check out more pictures from her spread in Vanity Fair. From the sexy shots, it’s clear the girl never lost it!

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton Split!

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have officially called it quits! The high school sweethearts announced their decision to separate after eight years of marriage. “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the singer and the actress told People .

Robin and Paula first met when Robin was 14, and were together off and on throughout the years. They were married in 2005 and welcomed a son, Julian Fuego, in April 2010.

“Some of our individual goals still haven’t been realized,” Robin said in an interview with USA TODAY in July of his relationship with Paula. “But we have a healthy child. We’re madly, crazily in love. That’s where I was at, and I wanted to celebrate it. Life is pretty good, you know?”

Maybe those “individual goals” are what split up their marriage? We can only speculate. I did love them together, though! I thought that they would be one of the celebrity couples to make it, especially since they’ve been together for so long. It’s good to see though, that they are still on good terms, and I’m sure that they will co-parent well for the sake of their son.

Robin Thicke Talks Sex, Wants You To Love Him

Robin Thicke is featured in ELLE’s November ‘Cherchez La Femme’ discussing growing up with his ladies’ man father, Alan Thicke, and what his wife likes to listen to in the bedroom.

On his childhood with father (and reputed ladies’ man) Alan Thicke:

“My dad was single my whole pubescent period. He had Ms. Alabama, Ms. Dominican Republic – every week. I was like, Dang Pops. He had an indoor Jacuzzi, and he frequented it. The first time I saw a naked woman was when I went to take a shower one morning before school. I was like, Who is this girl in my shower?”

On his wife wanting to listen to his music in the bedroom:

“She likes to do it more than ever now. Sometimes she’ll even play groupie for me.”

What he considers his gift and his curse:

“I really want to be loved. What drives me to make music is love – whether it’s shallow or deep or whatever. I want to do things that make people love me.”

VIP EXCLUSIVE: Amy Varela Has A Message For Cheater Robin Thicke!

While a photo of Robin Thicke and a fan is circulating of him grabbing her butt, people are starting to wonder whether Thicke is having his fun on the side. We reported earlier about Thicke and his attempted rendezvous with beautiful brunette Amy Varela. So could these rumors of a wannabe wandering wank be true?

Well from what Amy Varela’s side of the story sounds like, Robin Thicke did stray from his wife Paula Patton.

While many people immediately stereotype unknown chicks connected to a celebrity sharing their experience as fame whores, Amy Varela claims she is different. Varela recently told Celebrityviplounge.com exclusively that not only was she persistently hit on by R&B crooner Robin Thicke, but she was sure he would have taken her back to his place. Unfortunately for Thicke she told him to stop.

In an exclusive video, Varela sets the record straight, sharing that the reason for her speaking out isn’t for her fifteen minutes of fame but rather for calling out Thicke, a MARRIED MAN, for being a douche!

Check out the message she has for Thicke and other married men out there who may be getting a little frisky on the sidelines.

Celebrity VIP Lounge has attempted to contact Robin Thicke’s camp, however we have been unsuccessful in reaching them.

For Amy Varela’s night with Robin Thicke go here.

Unedited Version of Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines” — Featuring Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo

robin-thicke

Robin Thicke and Pharrell visited “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night to perform their hit song “Blurred Lines.” The duo’s music video already has a billion views. Even though it’s extremely popular, Kimmel was very disappointed when the video was released when he learned he and his security guard Guillermo didn’t make the final cut. Luckily, Thicke and Pharrell brought the unedited version to JKL, which, everyone will surely agree, is much better.

Peep the Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo in “Blurred Lines” (feat. Robin Thicke and Pharrell) video below.

ABC Gets New Show Duets

You know what I wished for on my last birthday? Another singing competition show.

I’m kidding.

But, in case that was your wish, it has been granted! ABC has just announced their upcoming singing competition called, “Duets.” It will star Kelly Clarkson, Lionel Richie, Robin Thicke, and Jennnifer Nettles.

And in case you have been obsessed with the latest episode of ”The Voice,’ you will probably remember that three of these four Duet judges made their appearance on the show. Coincidence? I think not.

So, how will this show differ from it’s rivals?

The judges will have to undergo a battery of challenges, one of which includes skydiving, eat cow brains, and going through a series of underground caves and tunnels.

Oh wait. Never mind. That would make the show…you know…interesting and not just a replica of the hundreds of other singing competitions out there. Or maybe just more like Fear Factor.

But the new show is attempting to breathe new life into the singing competition era, by having these four judges sing with the contestants that they seek out across the country. The judges will each find two singers and these singers will “perform wih the stars before a live audience and eventually just one pair will remain.”

Kelly Clarkson released a statement expressing her excitement and looks forward to helping these hopefuls “accomplish their dream” and “can’t wait to be a part of.”

Jennifer Nettles from the Sugerland has a little bit less experience in the singing competition field then Clarkson, but she is also happy to be a part of this new endeavor. Thinking back to her own ambitious younger self says, “To have had the opportunity to perform with an established artist would have been so incredible when I was up and coming.”

Well, this is all well and good, but can we really take another singing show? Probably. There are those of us who would consider these shows a guilty pleasure and couldn’t stand the idea of missing a single episode. (I’m not saying that it’s me…I’m just saying…)

So, television watchers, will you be watching ABC’s Duet’s this summer?

Robin Thicke Arrested For Marijuana

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reading that title back, it still doesn’t sound right. Mr. Clean Cut R&B singer Robin Thicke was arrested today for possession of marijuana in New York City, according to the Huffington Post. After being pulled over by police over in Manhattan near Madison Square Park, the 34-year-old was found to have a joint inside his black SUV. After his arrest, he was given a desk appearance ticket, and released. His publicist kept quiet, releasing no comments on the situation.

The singer just released his fifth album, Love After War, back in December.

Not that singers and other celebrities have never been busted for pot, but I never expected it to be Robin Thicke for some reason. He just seems like the good boy, with a wife and a family (he married childhood sweetheart and actress Paula Patton, and they have a baby boy Julian together) that wouldn’t ever light up. But I guess everybody needs a good stress reliever every once in a while.
