Paula Patton And Robin Thicke Split

February 24th, 2014 4:33pm EST
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are divorcing after nine years of marriage.

The couple told People in a joint statement, "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

Patton and Thicke married in 2005 and Patton gave birth to the couple's only child, Julian Fuego, in 2010.

Patton and Thicke's marriage was placed in the spotlight after Thicke's "Blurred Lines" hit it big and his infamous VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus. No less than three women were spotted with the singer, with at least one claiming Patton was around whi...

Students Don't Want Robin Thicke Singing His 'Misognynist Music' At Boston University

February 21st, 2014 5:00pm EST
Robin Thicke
Boston University students have started an online petition asking school officials to cancel Robin Thicke's upcoming concert.

Members of the Humanists of Boston University started a petition because they dislike the singer's "sexist lyrics" and want his March 4. gig axed.

The petition reads, "It is a dishonor to our feminist history to symbolically idolize Robin Thicke by allowing him to perform his misogynist music at our university... Blurred Lines celebrates having sex with women against their will."

As of Thursday, about 1,400 students signed the petition; however, a school official ...

The 51 Best Albums Of 2013 - What Made Your List?

December 30th, 2013 6:00pm EST

Ranking the very best albums of any year is incredibly difficult; there are always misses. 2013 was filled with some triumphant musical moments, though not all of their parent albums were necessarily ‘worthy’ of being considered the best of the year. Because of various factors, this list has its surprises and like any album reviewed, its triumphs and flaws. One thing’s for sure – the top ten to fifteen albums are pretty close to the cream of the crop from my perspective. Here are the 50 (+1) best albums of 2013!

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

December 27th, 2013 6:30pm EST
Beyonce
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

Ah, there is always plenty to write about the music industry and the number of trends that come and go, as well as those remaining constant.  2013 was another interesting year, whether merely for its pleasant surprises or its disappointments.  Many observations will and can be made of the year musically and pop-culturally in regards to its artists.  While my inner musical nerdy side wishes that I could nitpick and analyze every facet microscopically, I’ll rely on a Childish Gambino rhyme to express why that’s not possible: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” What I do have time for is to shar...

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

December 9th, 2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

Crooner Robin Thicke is filming a music video with Anchorman character Ron Burgundy.

The 36 year-old singer and Will Ferrell's legendary "newsman" have already recorded a cover of Christopher Cross' smash hit Ride Like The Wind for the film's soundtrack.

Blurred Lines Over Who Wrote Robin Thicke's Hit Single

October 31st, 2013 12:58pm EDT
Robin Thicke
Has Robin Thicke's success as an artist been based on ripping off Motown legend Marvin Gaye?

Two of the late singer's children have filed a lawsuit against Thicke over his smash summer hit "Blurred Lines," alleging that Thick borrowed heavily from Gaye's "Got To Give It Up," and now it's time for him to pay up.

Thick, along with the song's producer Pharrell Williams and rapper T.I., who is featured on the single, filed a suit in August to clear the single after Gaye's children brought up potential copyright concerns. They even offered a six-figure settlement to avoid any court battles, wh...

12 Songs For Lovers – A Soundtrack That Will Boost Any Relationship

Janelle featuring Miguel primetime
Love songs can be so touching and certainly can propel any relationship (and in some cases hookups).  I have constructed a list of 12 ‘love’ songs that have the emotional and physical connection between lovers in mind… or something like that!  I attempted to make some narrative, but like most soundtracks, they’re all over the place anyways!

Track 1

Raheem DeVaughn, “Complicated”

(A Place Called Love Land)

As we know, no one relationship is ‘cut and dry’ by any means; all are their own diverse entity.  Among Raheem DeVaughn’s best tracks on his underrated indie-R&B album A Place Called L...

Miley Cyrus took it all off for her "Wrecking Ball" video, swinging nude -- save for a pair of work boots -- on the title object. She received plenty of flak for the racy video, most likely because of her age and the fact that she's a role model for millions of young girls.

But she's definitely not the first to bare all in a music short, plenty of other artists have either gone nude or had a model, a girlfriend -- even a model girlfriend -- strip down for one of their videos.

Crooner Robin Thicke was left bewildered after a GQ magazine interview appeared to suggest he enjoyed degrading women with his sexy Blurred Lines video, because the writer failed to make it clear he was just joking.

The 36 year-old star was accused of objectifying women by having models parade around naked for the promo, and he was quizzed about the allegations during an interview with a reporter from GQ this spring.

Nonetheless, the American-Canadian musician admits he was a little distraught when the magazine hit retailers in May, because his words about the controversy had not been pla...

Last month, Miley Cyrus shocked viewers with a racy duet with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards, but the incident appears to have had no affect on the "Blurred Lines" singer's relationship with his wife Paula Patton.

The couple attended the "Baggage Claim" premiere in Los Angeles on Wednesday and were not shy about showing some PDA on the red carpet. The actress also looked stunning in a sheer black cocktail dress that showed off her curves.

The actress says she took no offense over the controversial routine, in which Cyrus stripped down to a skimpy outfit and bent over to "twerk" against the singer's crotch.

On Tuesday, September 3, 2013, I felt reassured about the output of R&B music.  As perused the CD aisle at the local Best Buy, I felt excited to see the majority of new releases were R&B (Neko Case and Nine Inch Nails among exemptions).  That observation should be shocking in itself.  This included established artists like John Legend, Jaheim, and Raheem DeVaughn, as well as rising artists in Tamar Braxton (a ‘reintroduction’ you might say) and Ariana Grande (a pop/R&B blend).  From my perspective, being an R&B lover who’s at his best singing along with a slow jam, I was happy to see such a...

Well done KatyCats and Kitty Purry for replaying “Roar” over and over. The fans and the radio stations across the nation have placed Katy Perry’s single "Roar” at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

As everyone should already know, "Blurred Lines" was the summer jam. The single held the top place on the Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks. I mean, Robin Thicke’s voice just makes any day better. Am I right, or am I right?

But, everyone’s time on the throne must come to an end, and Perry has nudged Thicke aside.

If you went all summer without ever becoming acquainted with Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”, well you must be very unfamiliar with pop culture and radio these days. You’re a ‘fossil’ basically, and I mean that in the most respectful yet humorous way.  “Blurred Lines” has been simply inescapable crowning the Billboard Hot 100 for 11 consecutive weeks.  As good as this single was for my homie Robin (his career looked like the bottom was about to completely come out from under it), it also has given him a fair some issues.  The video was much raunchier than the song itself, even if the song wa...

She also performed her own new single, "We Can't Stop", during the show. Rihanna really looked impressed. Miley's mom Tish was in the audience also. We're sure she's proud of her...

While the video for Thicke's single was originally banned by YouTube for featuring several topless women, Miley did her best to emulate the nudity by stripping down to a flesh-colored pair of skin-tight rubber panties and a matching bra.
