Robin Thicke And VH1 Laugh Off Questions About Misogyny

Thicke’s Q&A session was flooded with questions about his treatment of women, but the response was simply: “What controversy? Hahaha.”

1. VH1 tweeted Monday night to submit questions with #AskThicke for an online Q&A session that would be held the following day with Robin Thicke. The hashtag was immediately flooded with queries about misogyny.

8. There was even this:

*cartoon blink* RT @VH1 Because "Beatrice" didn't have the same ring to it RT @VH1Music Why did you name your new album "Paula"? #AskThicke

9. But a few questions were answered that were more serious:

Why didn't you write a whole album for her when you were WITH her? #AskThicke

Yes, the most RT @FreakieChris Was Paula and emotionally challenging album to record? #AskThicke

12. Although, Thicke’s response was basically “listen to the album” to find the answer:

If you cherish #Paula as much as you say, why can't you respect her desire for space & time to think & heal? #AskThicke

15. Thicke also said he could “handle it” and called himself “a big boy.”

I'm a big boy. I can handle it. RT @IamEast Man people are brutal on this #AskThicke
