I beg to differ, sir.
Robin Thicke’s new cd broke a record for possibly being the lowest selling studio album of all time. The album Paula named after his ex-wife Paula Patton only moved a embarrassing 530 copies. And yes, you’re reading that correctly as I didn’t miss any zeroes. YIKES! He was better off selling copies out of a box Chevy at a gas station off the highway.
With “Blurred Line” being such a huge hit, even though it’s viewed as misogynistic, it’s astounding how the sells are so low. He has millions of followers on different social sites and only 530 people in Canada deemed it important to support the man? Talk about a struggle of epic proportions.
It apparent as of late that the public simply doesn’t like him right now and the others think he’s full of it. His fan base is heavily comprised of women so cfheating and embarrassing your wife in front of the entire world is a sure way to lose fans. Moreover, his plight to win her back by further embarrassing her, crying on stages all over the world came off as a marketing tactic. Robin just couldn’t win no matter which lane he took.
Not to mention the “Ask Robin” twitter Q&A debacle that was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. He claimed he was a “big boy and could handle it” but I’m not sure he, VH1 or his publicist was ready for slams he took.
It seems Paula isn’t the only thing Robin’s lost. His career seems to be on it’s way out the door as well. One could only hope his team knows what to do to pull it together because while he may be foolish as a man, he’s a dope artist. However, it’s hard to separate the two when he’s dead set on colliding his worlds in the public’s eye.
