Media sharks (and feminists) are in a frenzy over Robin Thicke's new ethereal, breakup biopic "Get Her Back." We think Thicke is a creep, sure, but not a stalker (as some bloggers labeled him after watching the music video).

The video features a battered and lovesick Thicke, clinging to the memory of his estranged wife Paula--or at least a woman who resembles Paula. We're assuming the negative Pop-up-Video style text messages which appear throughout the video aren't helping Thicke's image.

"...Romanticizing the creepy and potentially harassing efforts of a man obsessed with this ex sends a dangerous message to young men about what 'romance' really is," Jessica Valenti posted on

theguardian.com

. "Hint: it has nothing to do with haranguing and publicly shaming us back into a relationship. ... the video sends a message that Thicke won't take no for an answer. And that's not romantic--it's just downright scary."

Upcoming Events

Spoiler alert: We think Paula is in on the ruse. Otherwise, she could have some sort of libel case.

We applaud Thicke for having the cojones to name the album Paula, after his muse. We all know Coldplay's Ghost Stories should have just been named Gwyneth.
