Robin Thicke’s ‘Paula’ Album Is A Big Flop, Concert Ticket Prices Lowered

By: Val Powell - August 13, 2014

Robin Thicke shook the world with his hit “Blurred Lines”, but has been less successful these days.  His latest album Paula has landed on the LA Times’ list of Top 10 album flops of 2014. Robin Thicke is now fighting off the perception that the album he created to win back the affection of his ex-wife Paula Patton has sent his career on a downward spiral.

The LA Times article described Thicke’s Paula as a “creepy, hastily crafted mea culpa” that didn’t redeem the album of its purpose as a message from Thicke to Patton. It goes on to mention Thicke’s odd antics following his divorce such as begging for Patton to take him back during every performance and helping 1-800-Flowers sell branded bouquets.

Meanwhile, tickets to Thicke’s August 17 show at the Illinois State Fair have gone on sale at lower prices, which may signal a lack of confidence in the star’s ability to sell. He has also canceled his show at the Indiana State Fair on August 1. With lowered ticket sales and the fact that Paula only debuted with 25,000 copies sold, fans are wondering whether Thicke’s songs directed at Patton such as “Get Her Back” have damaged his career.

MTV News reports that Patton isn’t impressed with Thicke’s album either. The couple has put their 3,158 square foot property on the market for US$3 million, which signals that things may still have not worked out between them.

Thicke claims that cheating is not the reason behind his divorce. “We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore for a while. There’s a hundred different reasons, there isn’t just one. There’s a long list…I changed, and I got a little too selfish, a little too greedy and little too full of myself,” he said.

    Robin got it all wrong. If get her back was “Good Riddance” the album will be a huge success. He also should have called the album “Robin” instead of “Paula”. I notice that everyone is into drama, they’re more interested with who’s divorcing whom? who’s breaking up with whom? who won’t be together for long? Who should leave whom? (rolling eyes)

    He thinks too much of himself… stupid man. He deserves what he gets.

    They aren’t divorced yet. They are separated. Reporters and content writers should get their straight.

    like father like son. Dad Alan is just as bad and clearly taught son Robin how to be a cheater

      And less than mediocre in every way

    Why would this jerk even decide (aside from ego and money) to tour?
