You may have heard of this singer, Robin Thicke? Well, he’s on tour this week during what has to be a difficult time in his personal life. As we all know, his wife Paula Patton, has apparently called it quits and word on the street says that he wants her back. We don’t know if he’s adding that good old Jackson 5 chestnut to his show, but if you’re in Connecticut or Atlantic City this weekend, he might clue you in. The show must go on, regardless.
This weekend’s biggest show is the 86th annual Academy Awards, where Hollywood It Girl Lupita Nyong’o is sure to werk the red carpet and we hope, pick up a Supporting Actress Oscar. 12 Years a Slave also has a great shot at Best Picture, so tune in on Sunday at 8:30 to see if it wins. Check out what else is going on this weekend right here.
