Everyone deals with heartbreak in their own distinctive way. While some cringe over just the thought about moving on, many hit the club scene or wherever social setting one can possibly find new love (dating sites included), and attempt to get their lives back on track, more often updating their relationship statuses to “single and ready to mingle”. We’ve seen this all so many times, right? This is particularly difficult for celebrities, who tend to be under the media’s microscope, and whom are constantly scrutinized and heckled on an everyday basis by paparazzi, who just want to get those big-time money shots of those same celebs donning a frowner after a break-up.
Throw kids into the mix, and well, it becomes quite the messy situation for both sides. Singer Robin Thicke and actress Paula Patton have seen their breakup play out all in the media, largely because the former has made it pretty adamant that he’ll do whatever it takes to get his high school sweetheart back, and as a result, he may very well seem desperate to fans presently -- but, uh, we’re sure he’s not letting those opinions stop him in his quest to get Ms. Patton back in his arms.
Thicke, who took home some hardware last night at the Billboard Music Awards for his hit single “Blurred Lines”, also hit the stage to pour his heart out on national television, as he premiered a new single entitled “Get Her Back.” And if you guessed it, yes, it’s about getting his former main squeeze back. A day after unveiling the song at the show, the Grammy nominated crooner has released the studio version of the abovementioned track on iTunes, and we have to admit, it’s a tearjerker. Listen up, kids. Hold on tight to your significant others while you can, because tomorrow is never promised, and you sure don’t know if that sweet ole union will turn sour. Stream his heartfelt performance above and visit Vibe.com to hear a studio version of the ballad. You can also purchase the single on iTunes if the song piques your interest.
