I feel like the last person on Earth to finally figure out who Robin Thicke is.
His 'Lost Without U' song from his 'Evolution of Robin Thicke' CD drew me away from my gospel channel, compelling me to absorb the falsetto lyrics with wonder:
Baby you're the perfect shape
Baby you're the perfect weight
Is that a man singing?
I asked myself, before feeling like a fool falling in love yet again.
You don't want this guy
You don't want that guy
Okay, Robin Thicke is a brotha, I naturally assumed. One harkening back to the height of Maxwell, shouting out an ode to D'Angelo with his "how does it feel?" hook.
Treat me like it's my birthday
I want it this way, I want it that way
Then I caught the tail end of Robin Thicke's Today Show performance, actually just the interview seen in this video.
Something finally clicked in my brain, after all these months of making a mental note to "Google Robin Thicke" every time I saw the 30-year-old's name displayed on my minivan's panel.
Robin Thicke is a white boy!
And not just any white boy, but the son of Alan Thicke -- hence the familiar spelling of the last name.
So my gut is still reeling after finally watching the hot video of Lost Without U, which I wasn't even going to link to until I discovered that the woman in the Lost Without U video is none other than Robin Thicke's wife, the enviably gorgeous black actress Paula Patton.
Watch for Paula in upcoming This Wednesday movie trailers.
I'm so jealous. They're so gorgeous together.
And how the heck did Alan Thicke's son get so much soul?
Anyway, he's beautiful, she's beautiful, his dad's beautiful, Robin's music is beautiful -- he and my namesake will make beautiful babies.
In case you're like me, the small percentage of the populous who's not already hot for this guy, just check out all the stuff people wanted to know about Robin Thicke months ago.
Just imagine how much bigger Robin Thicke will get now...
