Blue-eyed soul singer Robin Thicke is well known for many things: wooing the women with his sultry songs and beautiful falsetto, putting on an incredible live show, and most importantly, adoring his high school sweetheart and wife of six years, A-list actress Paula Patton. When you have that relationship and that means the most to you -- you know I can’t live without that woman, she is my muse, my best friend, and my creative partner.

Maybe the women have to take better care of their men.
Whenever I’m standing on a subway platform, I play this game: I hover near a person I think is cute and try to slowly make my way over to him so we get in the same car. Like most of the girls in my class, I wanted attention from the boys.
