Does Singer Robin Thicke have any regrets about his recent appearance with Miley Cyrus at The MTV Video Music Awards? People are still talking about the racy stint that shocked the world. Thicke is not a newbie to the business at 36. He had been at this for a while. Over the past few years Thicke has been staple on urban radio, but now with Blurred Lines he is enjoying the biggest hit of his career. With the success
of this song, comes the controversy. Did he borrow too much from the Marvin Gaye classic Got To Give It Up. The Gaye Family is being sued by Thicke to keep them suing him about the similarities in the songs. Sources close to Thicke say this is not the direction they wanted for his career. He didn’t win anything at the MTV Video Music Awards, and Thicke's big night was overshadowed by twerking, tongues, grinding and teddy bears all lead by Disney good girl gone raunchy Miley Cyrus. Thicke's wife and mother Actress Paula Patton and Soap Opera Star Gloria Loring were said to have been shocked at what happened at the awards show. Patton, who has a new movie Baggage
Claim coming out on the 27th of September, says she is happy for her husband despite initial reservations about the show. Will Blurred Lines become Thicke's Thong Song (i.e. Sisqo) and stall his career? Only time will tell.

How did the NBA not pick up on his drug use. Sources say he had prescription Oxycotin, and he would smoke it. If you have a legal prescription, the NBA can’t say anything. The drug stories caught a lot of people by surprise. Were these stories leaked by Kris Jenner, who was Odom's manager and mother-in-law. Was this punishment because
he cheated on her daughter? Will his marriage to Khloe Kardashian survive? Kardashian family members are upset feeling Odom is hurting the Kardashian brand.
