Paula Patton Song To Be Revealed At Billboard Awards

By: Amanda Crum - May 16, 2014

Paula Patton and Robin Thicke announced earlier this year that they were separating after nine years and a child together, and many wondered if Thicke’s raunchy MTV VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus had anything to do with it. Now, TMZ reports that the singer will be revealing a new song at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards that has very personal meaning behind it, and rumors are spreading that he might be trying to win back his love.

According to the site, the song–titled “Get Her Back”–includes the lyrics “All I wanna do is make it right…I gotta get her, go get her back / I gotta treat her right / I gotta cherish her for life…I should’ve kissed you longer / I should’ve held you stronger / And I’ll wait for forever for you.”

Patton recently gave an interview to Vanity Fair in which she talked about her feelings for Thicke, saying they had shared a lot of firsts together.

“We’ve known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there — always was, and always will be. He wasn’t my first kiss. But he was my first lots of other things,” she said.

Patton has been the subject of several of Thicke’s songs and has appeared in his videos, but so far neither have commented on the Billboard Music Awards rumors. Patton is currently filming Warcraft, a movie based on the game series.

“I’ve never been big into video games. But the Warcraft script reads more like a complex, epic novel,” she said.

    I honestly feel bad for him. He’s working so hard to get back the love of his life, and all these bitter internet commenters are just making him out to be the Whore of Babylon when stuff like this goes on all the time for even non-celebrities. I’ve never seen a man work so hard to keep a woman.

    People keep making Robin out to be this big scuzz but he’s clearly working hard to get her back. Honestly, some of her post-split behavior (like going to all these awards shows when she has NO movie nominated and being all smiles or posting nude on Vanity Fair when she also has NO movie coming out) is really bizarre and unfeeling. It’s like “Robin has loved you since you were teenagers and you have a son together, is keeping your face in the press between movies really more important? Do you really not feel anything close to genuine human emotion?”
