Robin Thicke has been making music for 20 years, but a little
twerk tweak in his career made the world know his name.
He sat down with Vanity Fair the day after the MTV VMAs and discussed his infamous performance with Miley Cyrus and addressed cheating rumors, reports Us Weekly.
"Everybody knows who I am now because I let Miley Cyrus twerk in front of me on the MTV awards," he said.
"I spent my whole career playing it safe, being a gentleman, never doing anything controversial."
Thicke continued by explaining the VMA producers told him before the performance that Cyrus was going to "take her clothes off and dance around."
"Let's give them something they're not ready for, let's make them talk," he said.
And making them talk, he did. It's been over a month and we are still talking.
The 36-year-old singer also addresses recent rumors that he cheated on Paula Patton, his wife of eight years.
"Seventy-five percent of my songs are about how much I love my wife and how much I need her," he said. "We've been married for eight years, and together since we were 16. We're very lucky to have the greatest friendship; we're John and Yoko -- whatever that is -- that's who she is to me."
