I have learned in under just one year that Robin Thicke is under the impression that Robin Thicke is a lot more talented than he really is. Sure, at one point, he wrote and sang fantastic love songs in that falsetto voice that was slightly grating but excusable. But now, he spends his days doing questionable things that his level of talent can't excuse. And I'm calling him out on it.

So, in honor of his release of the album that will make our great-grandchildren cringe, Paula, here are 11 times that Robin Thicke was convinced that he was way more talented than he actually is.

1. That time he thought a song would fix his marriage.

And thus, “Get Her Back” was born, and we were doomed to watch him cry pathetically on stage while wincing from secondhand embarrassment.

2. That time he thought an album would fix his marriage.

Because, if his estranged wife, Paula Patton, wasn't already swooning at the first song, surely 13 more about the same effing thing would do the trick!

3. That time he thought #AskThicke wouldn't be a total disaster.

No worries, things went downhill so drastically that I'm assuming that it didn't take long for him to realize that he'd made a huge mistake à la Arrested Development.

4. That time he thought he could get away with blaming Miley Cyrus for the VMAs fiasco.

I'm guessing the logic was that if he just quietly agreed with everyone else who was attacking only Miley for the performance, he could buy himself some time to work on even more rape-y projects.

5. That time he thought he should make a music video featuring naked ladies and his toddler.

Robin Thicke I Got A Kiss For Ya


“Everyone will be so blinded by my sheer talent and ability to always be wearing sunglasses that they won't realize what kind of party I've brought my 3-year-old to.” – Robin

6. That time he pre-sued Marvin Gaye over a song he'd copied from Marvin.

The music industry works in strange ways.

7. That time he thought Paula Patton wouldn't notice he put their private texts in his music video.

I'm pretty sure he included texts that they'd had in private in his music video in an attempt to win her back. This logic isn't even backward, it's just nonexistent.

8. That time he thought no one would make a big deal about the photo of him grabbing Not Paula's butt

“It's just a joke, you guys! I am almost engaging in a sexual act with this stranger while clearly wearing my wedding band as a gag! Just go listen to my song and forget about it.” – Also Robin

9. That time he thought he could be a movie star and was the worst.

Robin had previously appeared on BET's Real Husbands of Hollywood, which I'm guessing gave him the confidence to make the leap from sort of bad TV to really bad movies. 

10. That time he thought that several public apologies would be a solution to private issues.

I genuinely can't stress enough how little sense it makes that Robin keeps subjecting the whole world to his apology-fest. It's just so embarrassing for everyone involved which, unfortunately, includes every person with access to a TV or a radio.

11. Those times he thought no one would mind him spelling his song titles like internet slang.

Robin Thicke Lost Without U


“Give It 2 U,” “4 The Rest Of My Life,” “Lost Without You,” “Shakin' It 4 Daddy” (ew), just to name a few. It literally doesn't matter how great you think you sound on a song if the title of it and all of your other songs R Spelled Like Dis.
