Robin Thicke gave one hell of an interview to Essence yesterday, talking about his long-term romance with his wife, Paula Patton. “I didn’t have a great relationship with my mom and she didn’t have a great relationship with her dad and we became that for each other,” he says. “She’s my mama and I’m her daddy. I even call her mama and she calls me daddy.” How totally unweird! He also credits Patton with helping him understand American race relations. “You can’t understand it until you are with somebody every day and you have a child that you know is Black, you then understand that, wow, what a different experience Black people and in particular Black women have to go through,” he says. But back to their love life: Thicke says he likes to whisper to his wife, “I can’t wait to get you home and love you up for two to three hours,” and that he is a generous lover. “I like to try to get her into double-digit orgasms as much as possible. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when I’ve got my mojo and my swag, it happens,” he says. My goodness.
