Robin Thicke has revealed that he pleased with his MTV Video Music Awards performance alongside Miley Cyrus and “wouldn't change a thing,” while also admitting that the pair intentionally set out to cause controversy.
Robin, 37, and the 'Wrecking Ball' songstress sparked outrage last month when they took to the stage at the VMAs for a raunchy performance of his hit single 'Blurred Lines,' with many left stunned by Miley's overtly sexual display of twerking, gyrating and scantily-clad body. Despite the intense backlash, Robin says he couldn't be happier with their performance and says that both he and Miley are proud of what they “accomplished.”

“[I] wouldn't change a thing,” Robin told E! News. “Miley and I had a blast. She's a great girl. Great family. We went out there to raise some eyebrows and provoke some energy so we accomplished our goal.”
While initial claims suggested that Robin's wife Paula Patton was furious with their steamy display, the 'Baggage Claim' actress says that she couldn't see why the public were shocked.

“It's just so funny because when I saw him perform I was like, 'You guys killed it!' We hugged each other, we went out, celebrated,” Paula said.
“The next day, my cell phone [has] all these texts: 'Praying for you. If you need to talk, I'm here.' It was all about the Miley thing and I thought, Why are people making such a big deal about it? Quite frankly, all my friends dance like that with him. He's like the guy that you can dance with, 'cause he's safe!”
