Paula Patton, Robin Thicke’s wife, appeared onBravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday and opens up about her husband’s controversial VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus. Patton said she was not affected by the performance.
“Honestly, they rehearsed for three days beforehand, and I don’t know how not to dance with someone having their booty in your … all my friends do it like that,” she told host Andy Cohen. “And I don’t really know what the big deal is.”
Patton even made a joke regarding the viewers’ shock. “I didn’t know if they thought Miley was going to sit down and play piano like Alicia Keys. Her song’s about taking molly!” she said, referring to the lyrics from Cyrus’ mega hit “We Can’t Stop.”
“I don’t understand. I didn’t get the big deal,” she continued.
Cyrus herself shared the same view as Patton, telling MTV days after the perfromance,”Me and Robin, the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now.’”
“They’re overthinking it,” the singer said of her critics. “You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me.”
As the attention begins to die down from Cyrus’ duet with Thicke, more and more eyes are on her personal life as she and her former fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, called off their engagement this week after four years together.
One report said the “Hunger Games” heartthrob was “disgusted” by Cyrus’ racy romp at the VMAs and lost all desire to rescue their romance.
