Big Tigger & Robin Thicke


Singer Robin Thicke stopped by The Big Tigger Show to promote his upcoming album, “Love After War,” which will hit shelves on Tuesday December 6th.  During his entertaining interview, Thicke talked about his most recent show in DC, his 6 year marriage to actress Paula Patton, race and new music. Peep some excerpts:

On why he said that he thinks he was a black woman in his previous life:

“I guess because I’m just so connected to my wife and I understand more than I’ve ever understood before, after watching her have a child and what it takes to be a black woman in this world. I remember [why I said that] last night. I was talking bad about white people. Because they turned on the house lights and I go ‘wow, there’s a few white people here. Sorry, I’m not used to that, especially in DC.’”

On what he means by singing through his penis:

“You gotta hear the new album. What happened was after I had a child all of that fluttery falsetto singing has gone out the window. It’s just big man singing, now. Because I have to hold it down. I just feel different; I feel real grown.”

On his unexpected sense of humor:

“I always have been [a comedian on the inside]. I just used to hide more. I always wanted to be like a real artist, and be cool. But I wasn’t letting people all the way in. I would do it in my music, but not in my shows. Any time there was a camera on, I just wanted to be cool. But after you’ve had a kid, and you go through all that, and you’ve changed diapers, it aint nothing cool about me anymore, at all.”

On how Paula helped him write his new single, “Love After War:”

“[Paula Patton] helped me write [‘Love After War’]. I wrote the album over about a year and a half. With everything happened with her having a baby, and going through the pregnancy, so I had a lot of time to write songs. This was one of the very first songs I wrote, and then I kind of put it aside and didn’t mess with it until the last month I was finishing the album. Then I pulled it back, and she was like ‘you should write it about our fights, you know, throwing stuff in the driveway, and the way you broke the TV last week.’ Yes, we fight hard, we love hard, but I can’t let her go.”

On people rejecting his love for black music:

“I got this one tweet after the Soul Train Awards. It was a black lady who was dressed like she was from the 1920s.  And she said ‘I’m tired of white people stealing black music and profiting off of it.’ She went in hard on me. I tweeted her back and said, ‘you’re exactly right,’ and I said, ‘everybody should follow her, she’s got good cultural opinions.’ Then all of my fans started tweeting her and killing her. But I just sing from my heart and soul, I can’t help that I’m addicted to black music, black women, and black culture. I got it in my guts.”

On why Lil’ Wayne was the only artist featured on his album (on the song “Pretty Little Heart):

“I didn’t want to have any features on the album. I just wanted him to do a remix for a single. But he just killed it. Sometimes he’s just so on point that you can’t even take him off the record. So I kept that one feature. But I wanted it to be so personal and so honest that I didn’t want to have any other features or producers or writers.”
