“I know you want it…”

Do we, Robin? Do we really?

In the past year, singer Robin Thicke has often been at the top of entertainment headlines. From his controversial performance with Miley Cyrus on the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to his rocky marriage with actress Paula Patton, the American-Canadian musician just won’t go away – although he probably should.

Here are 5 reasons why Mr. Thicke should hang up his Beatlejuice-striped suit and retire into the Canadian Rockies:

1. He Sings Kind-of-Rapey Songs

No doubt anyone who turned on the radio last summer heard Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” release. The pop song was heavily criticized for being sexist and promoting a “rape culture” with lyrics like “OK now he was close, tried to domesticate you, but you’re an animal, baby, it’s in your nature, just let me liberate you” and “I feel so lucky … You wanna hug me … What rhymes with hug me?” (Pug me? Bug me? Fug me?)

But that’s not the only song that the 37-year old released that was questionable. In his 2009 release, “Sex Therapy,” the lyrics were just as charming.

“Just let me love you, lay right here, girl, don’t be scared of me
Give you sex therapy, give you sex therapy”

I have a feeling we would need a different kind of therapy after “just laying there.” But thanks anyway.

2. He’s a Suspected Cheat

On August 25, headlines claimed that Thicke had cheated on Patton after a picture surfaced of him groping a woman at a party. This woman later claimed that she and Thicke had indeed slept together after the photo was taken. Either way, he was groping another woman’s rear end and that in itself is enough to show some character of an individual.

3. He’s Turned to Movie Making

As if we haven’t heard enough about him, in October it was announced that Thicke was in the process of making his first movie. The short film, Mercy, is about a man who murders his cancer-stricken wife. Though he doesn’t play the murderer, Thicke plays the husband of a drug-addicted and alcoholic wife, played by his real wife, Paula Patton.

“I’ve always written my own songs, so [writing a movie] is just an extension of telling stories,” he told GQ last spring.

Sure. It’s just like that, isn’t it, Mr. Scorsese?

4. He Was on a Reality Show

Before the success of “Blurred Lines,” Thicke appeared on the BET reality show Real Husbands of Hollywood with Nelly, Nick Cannon, and Kevin Hart. However, it was just too much for him, claiming that he “couldn’t finish the album and promote the single and go over seas and do all these other things I wanted to do.”

All the things he wanted to do. You know, like perving out and not actually being a “real husband.”

5. His father is Alan Thicke.

Enough said.

    I love Robin Thicke! With all of the truly obnoxious lyrics and horrid stage performances that are so common now, he is tame. He is talented, sexy and relevant.. Leave our boy Robin alone and let him do his thing!!!

    I was always told that Canada is a neutral country.

    Five reasons Robin Thicke should hate the feminazis stringing him up after entirely missing the point of the “Blurred Lines” lyrics….

    1. They’ve destroyed the irrepressible energy and joy of “Blurred Lines,” which was a surprise and delight to, well, pretty much everybody who hears it;

    2. They’ve completely manufactured their attacks on the songs lyrics, which are not even remotely referring to rape;

    3. They are attacking an individual, rather than discussing an issue. Just so they could have a convenient “boogie man” for their righteous indignation, they have attempted to destroy his reputation, his career and his personal life;

    4. They have showed no respect or sensitivity for his just-turned-four son, whose safe, quiet life with two parents is now going to be forever changed, and when he’s old enough to understand, will get to read all about how Daddy is “rapey.”

    5. They’ve manipulated the public into believing ludicrous stories about Thicke, his music and his life. They are the ultimate wet blanket for any party.
