Robin Thicke Twitter Q&A Goes Terribly Wrong

Robin Thicke’s very public crusade to win back wife Paula Patton brought the crooning star to a VH1-hosted Q&A, live on Twitter, Tuesday afternoon…and things went about as catastrophically bad as you might imagine.

Tweeters were invited to send their questions to the R&B star using the hashtag #AskThicke. Instead of peppering Rob with friendly questions about his new album, ahem, Paula, the hashtag became a magnet for queries on far more controversial subject matter: his Summer of ’13 blockbuster “Blurred Lines,” his public (arguably, bordering on stalkerish) campaign to reconcile with Patton and the rumors that he’s an adulterous sleazebag.

Here are some of the more side-splitting #AskThicke tweets:

After R. Kelly was publicly humiliated during a similar #AskaCelebrity social media event earlier this year, we’re surprised Hollywood heavyweights (and more importantly, their handlers) are still willing to participate. There’s something to be said for the shameless.

In an interview with Hot 97 early Tuesday, Robin denied that cheating is what prompted his split with Paula and confessed that he hasn’t seen his estranged wife in four months.

“[Cheating] is not why we’re apart. 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…She’s only heard a few songs. I don’t think she wants to hear it right now. I can’t speak for her, but I think space is an important part of any healing process.”
