Robin Thicke Talks ‘Blurred Lines’ Success: ‘I Set Up My Own Charity’

Robin Thicke has had three number ones on the Urban/R&B charts, but what has the success of "Blurred Lines," which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for twelve weeks, done for him? How has it changed his life and career?

Opening up about the massive hit single, which has sold over 5 million copies to-date, Thicke says it has changed his life "in every single way."

"I’ve had three number-one songs on urban radio. I was doing well. I was doing OK. But the difference is when a million people a day watch your video and two hundred million people a week hear your song," Thicke shares in the latest issue of Prestige.

With over 5 million in sales, not including sales of his new album, Thicke certainly has come up financially too.

"One thing it’s done is give me the finances and the power to actually set up my own charity. You can’t get that much and not give most of it back," he went on to say.

In related news, Robin Thicke credits his wife, Paula Patton, for keeping him not only focused, but "alive" through the ups and downs of the music industry.

"Oh, without question. I don’t know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn’t for Paula. She’s been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her. The whole way," he shared.
