Oyza. Robin Thicke may be trying to win his estranged wife Paula Patton back, but all he's doing is giving us a pretty clear picture of why she left in the first place. This dude has been on a campaign to win his high school sweetheart back, and while he might think he's upping the ante with each new attempt, it looks more like his narcissism is escalating.
Take for example the music video he released on Monday for his new single "Get Her Back." It's off his upcoming album Paula (no joke), which also includes the sure-to-be-hits "Too Little Too Late," "Still Madly Crazy," and "Love Can Grow Back." The video is absolutely, mind-blowingly, spectacularly pathetic.
It's a horrific combination of presumably private text messages flashing onscreen, a naked Paula lookalike shedding tears, and Thicke himself, looking disheveled, shirtless, and bloody, singing into the camera about how he's going to get his wife back. Bloody. Yup, there's blood on his face. Also he makes a suicide reference by making a gun shape with his fingers and pointing it to his temple. Whhhhhy?
Song lyrics include, "I never should have raised my voice or made you feel so small / I never should have asked you to do anything at all / I should have kissed you longer / I should have held you stronger / And I'll wait for forever for you to love me again."
Wait forever? Sounds creepy and definitely like he needs to move on. Plus the text messages flashing don't exactly make it seem like he really wants to win her back. Without saying whether they're real or not, or which one is from whom, the words flash on the screen between shirtless shots of the singer.

"How could you do that to me?" may be a reference to infidelity, but on whose side? Other gems include, "I kept trying to warn you you were pushing me too far," "You drink too much," "You embarrassed me," "I can't make love to you anymore."
Eventually one of the texts says, "I wrote a whole album for you," with the followup response being, "I don't care."
I'm sure Paula cares. They were married for eight years, together for more than 20, and they have a 4-year-old son together. Of course she cares. But she's being a total class act by not even responding to her soon-to-be-ex-husband's lame attempts to somehow "get her back" by publicly proclaiming to love her while insinuating that she's the uncaring, unsympathetic one, all while trying to further his own career by exploiting their breakup for an album. It's just gross.
Do you think Paula Patton will be swayed at all to reconcile after watching this video?
