Robin Thicke blurs the lines of sweet and sleezy

Last time Robin Thicke came to Madison Square Garden, on the occasion of Jingle Ball, the 36-year-old singer donned a leopard-print sport coat and serenaded an arena of teenagers with songs about blurred lines and giving it 2 U. But breathe easy, potential ticket-buyer; in a longer set — and one for a crowd that’s more WBLS than Z100 — such sleaze is tempered by the romantic charms of songs like “Pretty Lil’ Heart,” “When I Get You Alone,” and that other Pharrell-featuring hit, “Wanna Love You Girl.” Hopefully he even displays some of the self-aware charm we saw on the first season of Real Husbands of Hollywood, a show to which his recent divorce might make him ineligible to return.
