Robin Thicke Says Music Is Like Therapy
LOS ANGELES, July 2 -- Robin Thicke thinks making music is like therapy.
The 37-year-old singer - who split from his wife Paula Patton after nine years of marriage this February - thinks his apology album entitled 'Paula', which he dedicated to the 38-year-old actress, was a therapeutic experience as it allowed him to admit his faults.
He told radio station Hot 97, "My music is my therapy. When I make these songs and I listen back to them, they make me feel good about myself because at least I'm admitting my faults, I'm trying to become a better man and better person.
"This album is dedicated to her, but half of it is about my problems and me getting certain things together so I can be the kind of man that I wanted to be."
The couple - who have a four-year-old son, Julien, together - split following rumours Robin had been propositioning other women after the success of his Grammy Award-nominated single 'Blurred Lines'.
He explained, "Last year was really just kind of a blur in many ways, no pun intended. Everything happened so fast and you don't realize all the things that come with it.
"I changed and I got a little too selfish and a little too greedy and a little to full of myself. At this point in our relationship, the only reason we're not together is because of the choices I made."
Robin also made a heartfelt public apology to Paula at this year's BET Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles over the weekend.
The singer took to the stage to perform 'Forever Love' during the ceremony and dedicated the track to his estranged spouse.
He said, "Good evening, my name is Robin Thicke. I'd like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, 'I miss you, and I'm sorry.' This is called 'Forever Love.' "
