Robin Thicke Admits Being 'High On Vicodin and Alcohol' During 'Blurred Lines'

Robin Thicke says he was "high and drunk" while recording 'Blurred Lines' and during almost every single interview last year.

Thicke made the revelation in a deposition for his ongoing lawsuit with Marvin Gaye's children, who have alleged that his hit stole from their father's famous 'Got to Give It Up'.

"I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio," Thicke admits. "So my recollection when we made the song, I thought I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit and I wanted credit."

"So I kind of started convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was and I wanted some credit for this big hit. But the reality is that Pharrell Williams had the beat and he wrote almost every part of the song."

"I had a drug and alcohol problem for the year and I didn't do a sober interview. So I don't recall many things that I said," Thicke says of interviews in which he claimed full credit for the song.

"After making six albums that I wrote and produced myself, the biggest hit of my career was written and produced by somebody else and I was jealous and I wanted some of the credit."

He also hints that these were the issues that led to the end of his marriage to Paula Patton.

"I've been sober for the last two months," he says. When your wife leaves you, it gives you a good reason to be sober. I've actually only been sober off the pills, off of Vicodin. I still drink."
