In this recent article it has been alleged that Robin Thicke, the crooner who had the big hit “Blurred Lines,” states that his estranged wife, Paula Patton, left him because he told the truth. Here is the link to the article:
In the entertainment field there are a “lot” of demons that “can and will” possess you if you are not strong enough to handle them. With fame often comes a “lot” of “temptation” and if you don’t handle it right you just might end up feeling as though there is a bright red target on your back. Thicke admitted that he had a drug and alcohol addiction. He said he took Vicodin and would often mix it with water and consume it before and during interviews. In his statement, he makes it seem as though his wife left him because he finally told her the truth. The fact is that she left him because he was “untruthful.” He was photographed literally “grabbing” some lady’s behind and for those of you who happened to see the video to his song “Blurred Lines” the women in it were all topless. It can be tough for any married couple to endure when one or both have a successful music career. You have to be able to “separate the business side” from the “personal side” and you have to incorporate a “massive faith” in trusting your partner. Paula Patton was an actress who knows the industry. She also was a wife who “knew her husband.” Thicke has no one but himself to blame for her leaving him, so for him to blame it on the fact that he “told the truth” was paramount to him not accepting responsibility for his own actions. The truth was coming out anyway whether he admitted to it or not. Telling her the truth did not excuse him from what he did so stop trying to blame it on the truth. Thicke and Pharrell Williams are credited with the success of Blurred Lines, even though they are currently being sued (and they are suing) the family of Marvin Gaye for copyright infringement of Gaye’s song “Got to give it up.” Many people feel as though the song was “stolen” from Gaye’s track. I have personally played both songs many times, and while I can tell you that the styles of both songs are very similar, there was no stealing of music in this instance. The melody lines are completely different. The chord progressions are completely different. The key of the song is completely different and the bass lines are completely different. If there is a stolen sample of Gaye’s tune in there I could not hear it (and my ears are perfectly tuned to pick out such things). Normally with most entertainers they have a “great rise” in their career that lasts for a while before they come crashing back to earth. In this situation it appears that Thicke’s “rise and fall” are actually transpiring at the “very same time.” A friend of mine who is a musician was once upset because his wife was leaving him. He was really bummed out over it and he asked me what he could do. I told him that the best way to get his wife back was to “show her something she never saw before” from him. Months later I talked to him and he thanked me for the advice, because they are now back together and happier than ever. I only hope that Robin Thicke finds the wherewithal to follow the same direction. This industry will “devour the weak” and his best friend “should” have been his wife. As I just said, his wife knows him, so if he really wants to get her back, then he needs to show her “someone that she DOESN’T know.” Accepting responsibility for his own actions is a “great way” to start. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and I wish you the very best that life has to offer today.
