“I’ve done some topless photo shoots before but never completely nude. It was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, ‘Okay, let’s just do topless’ … but, again, my wife and her friends were like, ‘No way … go all the way.’ I think we definitely pushed the envelope.”
– Robin Thicke explains how this picture of him with five naked women on the cover of Treats! Magazine came to be. “In addition to hanging out with some of the hottest Treats! you’ve ever seen, he talks about staying humble in the face of worldwide success,” says the magazine’s teaser. Oh yes, this is certainly a photo that communicates “humbleness.” You can see the NSFW version here. There are more pictures inside the magazine of him coming in sniffing distance of naked ass crack. Further support of the theory that he and Paula Patton have an open relationship. [NYMag.com]
Move over, Sydney Leathers — there’s a new blabby paramour in town and her name is Lana Scolaro. The woman whose backside was pictured mid-squeeze in the hand of Robin Thicke at a the VMAs after-party has told Life & Style that the pair went on to “hook up” that night. Scolaro, who is 20, said that Paula Patton, Thicke’s wife, was seated nearby while they got frisky and Scolaro didn’t think “he cared what [Patton] thought.” Despite the magazine calling their dalliance ‘cheating,’ Scolaro is quoted saying Thicke said Patton was “chill” with them fooling around and allegedly encouraged Scolaro to talk to Patton. Plus, she left the first VMAs party with Thicke and Patton for another party and that’s where their makeout session went down. She told the magazine that they exchanged numbers and planned to meet again at New York Fashion Week. (Sorry, honey, that’s not going to happen, now.) So there you have it: Robin Thicke has a thing for younger women who aren’t just Miley Cyrus.
But here’s an idea, geniuses: maybe Paula Patton and Robin Thicke have some kind of open relationship. It certainly doesn’t seem like they’re trying to hide anything. [Life & Style Mag]
“I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history. Me and Robin, the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now.’ What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later, and people are still talking about it. They’re over thinking it. You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me.”
– I don’t think anyone will be surprised to learn that Miley Cyrus did not put much thought into her MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke. I don’t think anyone thinks she’s anything but a 20-year-old, having fun and never hearing “no.” While I think she has a point that the VMAs have always featured “shocking” performances that people remember for years, I think she’s missing a valuable opportunity to, you know, learn something from how her performance was received regardless of its intent. Like that it’s not cool to treat black women’s bodies like props, for example. And, you know, to keep her tongue in the mouth, please. [via E! Online]
I heard rumors about how Robin Thicke allegedly grabbed some woman’s ass at the VMAs and I shrugged, as these things can tend to be sensationalized. Maybe his hand was grazing someone’s lower back? Or he got snapped at an unfortunate angle while colliding with a butt? It’s certainly possible in his line of work. This picture, taken at a VMA after party at 1Oak, features a reflection of Thicke’s hand fully cupping ass with possible fingers slipped into unmentionable places. The photo, which has been making rounds on the internet this week, was originally Instagrammed by the woman in the pic, identified by the Daily Mail as NYU student and socialite, Lana Scolaro. Well, that just about clears up any doubts I had. No blurred lines about it. The mirror never lies. Keep reading »
Let’s take a minute to talk about Miley Cyrus, shall we?
With a performance so uncomfortable it rivals that of the bride who grinded down the aisle to Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch,” Miley’s jaw-dropping VMAs stunt left parents covering the eyes of their children and grown adults glaring with disapproval as they watched in awe.
It’s safe to say the twerkin’ pop star’s performance ruffled more than a few feathers, but there’s something to be said about the fact that we’re still talking about it days later. Wasn’t that the point? Keep reading »
Robin Thicke has found a formula that works for him: Naked girls, plus rappers, plus the Futura font, equals a magical video experience. The video for his new single, “Give It 2 U,” features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, and brings the scantily clad ladies, previously found employing sheep to cover their naked bosoms, to a football field. The Albany Passionettes and the Alabama State Stingettes — two stellar dance teams — shake their booties, while grown ass women in cotton candy outfits prance around, carrying oversized, paper mache bottles of Brut. There’s a shocking amount of product placement; Thicke swigs from a bottle of Remy Martin, the models are delicately planted around the new Beats by Dr. Dre music players, and there’s a Mini Cooper that gets prime real estate. Thicke positions himself as a campy Lothario, a harmless middle-aged Glenn Quagmire type that you really can’t take seriously — but the song is gooooood. And here’s what else I like about this video, aside from the song, the dancing and the general lighthearted cheekiness: everyone in the video is given credit. The dance teams are named and the solo dancers are named, giving them a level of subjectivity not often seen in music videos. And I’m certainly not mad at that.
Beetlejuice certainly did have a lecherous side too, didn’t he? Lydia (aka Winona Ryder) does not approve. [Facebook]
