R&B pop singer Robin Thicke is happy with attention
For Robin Thicke, the most important thing is selling records and people hearing his music
Canadian-American R&B pop singer Robin Thicke says that he is happy with all the attention that he has been getting from the raunchy performance with fellow pop singer Miley Cyrus at the recent MTV Video Music Awards.
The 36-year-old behind No. 1 hit song Blurred Lines, which he performed with a bikini-clad Cyrus, would rather sell more records than have credibility, which he says is subjective.
He was speaking to the press before a performance at the MTV World Stage Live In Malaysia concert in Selangor yesterday. "Miley and I knew exactly what we were doing at the awards, and it's the MTV Awards, you know, it's the place of shock and awe, a place to provoke," he said with a grin.
The singer-songwriter was the headline act last night in a line-up that also featured K-Pop band EXO, American hip-hop/electronic music quartet Far East Movement and Malaysian rapper Joe Flizzow.
