Robin Thicke: 'My 'Paula' album was an embarrassment'

Singer Robin Thicke has revealed that his 'Paula' album, which he released last year in a bid to try and win back wife Paula Patton, was an embarrassment. 

Speaking to the New York Times recently, he admitted that his management team thought it was a bad idea, but they allowed him to release it and looking back now he realises that it wasn't the best move:

"I was struggling through my toughest time, and I decided to share it. And I remember my team and my record company didn't want me to put it out, but they stuck by me. In hindsight, the only thing I would have done differently was, I wouldn't have promoted it or sold it. I would have given it away. That would have kept the purity of the message intact."

Thicke went onto add that his good friend Craig Crawford put it into perspective after watching his BET performance in 2014, in which he serenaded Patton, as he told him that it made for very awkward viewing:

"I came home, and my best friend of 20 years, Craig Crawford, said, 'I saw your BET performance. I gotta be honest with you, buddy. You're kind of playing yourself, You look like a sucker.' And it hit me that I'd lost my perspective. What I thought was romantic was just embarrassing."
