Robin Thicke will appear on this Sunday's episode of Oprah's Next Chapter to talk about the MTV Video Music Awards incident with Miley Cyrus.
According to People, the “Blurred Lines” singer told Oprah that he himself is not a “twerker.” "That's all on her," Thicke said of Cyrus. "People ask me, 'Do you twerk?' I'm like, 'Listen, I'm the twerkee. I'm twerked upon. I don't twerk myself, okay? I'm just twerked upon.'"
The 36-year-old went on to say that he didn't even really notice Cyrus' moves at the time. "I was on stage. I didn't see it. So to me, I'm walking out towards Miley [and] I'm not thinking sex. I'm thinking fun, you know? I mean her and I don't have that kind of – You have to remember, I'm singing my butt off. I'm sitting there. I'm looking up at the sky, and I'm not really paying attention to all that."
Us Weekly reports that Thicke has been married to Paula Patton for eight years, and together they have a 3-year-old son, Julian. The family man was never one to live on the wild side, so when he saw an opening, he welcomed it. "I spent my whole career playing it safe, being a gentleman, never doing anything controversial," he said in November's issue of Vanity Fair. "They told me [beforehand] that Miley's going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over … I just said, 'I don't care, let's entertain the people.'"
Thicke also said on the show, which airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, that he thought all the backlash and commentary on the performance, spanning weeks later, is funny.
