"I actually have no idea what I'm doing," the "Lost Without U," crooner admitted during an appearance Wednesday on Good Morning America. "I'm just kinda flying by the seat of my pants on this one."
The 37-year-old singer was responding to a question about the very personal text messages which appear in the music video for his single "Get Her Back," in which Thicke vows he'll do anything to rekindle his romance with Patton. And while he didn't have an answer when it came to why he chose to go public with his personal life, Thicke admitted, "I just wanted to make something artistic out of a very difficult period."
He added: "When you lose the love of your life, you don't have much to hide anymore."
The father of one most recently released the music video for his latest single "Still Madly Crazy." The clip, which is a far cry from his hit "Blurred Lines," features adorable children recreating a wedding scene (no naked models in sight!) and it should come as no surpise that the visuals were inspired by Thicke's nuptials to the Baggage Claim beauty.
"These songs poured out of me over a course of two weeks, the whole album pretty much. And when I was looking through some of our old wedding photos and our sentimental stuff, I saw some of the pictures of the kids that were at the wedding and I thought it might be nice to create a wedding from the eyes of the 8-year-olds," Thicke explained.
Asked whether the title "Still Madly Crazy" says it all, the artist replied, "Oh yeah, I mean…we were childhood sweethearts. She's the best person I ever met, so I just thought the least I could do would be to devote an album to her."
"Well, the album—I didn't want it to be all depressing, because I didn't want her to listen to it and make her sad only, you know," he explained of the last track. "So I wanted there to be moments where she had hope and positivity that her and I can both still have a great life. No matter what happens, we'll be great friends and great parents."
So has she responded to his public plea?
"That's all private," he said. "I can't speak for her."
But he can leave his fans with a solid piece of advice: "If you got a good woman, take care of her guys."
Guess those blurred lines have become clear as can be.
