Seacrest interviews Thicke during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him on why he made the album Paula.
I didn’t have a choice. I came right off a tour and I had all these songs and all these ideas and feelings in my heart. And I went right into the studio. I wrote all the songs in about three weeks and we recorded the album in about a month. Obviously all the songs were about her or about how I feel about her. A lot of songwriters have done this kind of thing before. They won’t tell you in the title or they’ll be suggestive I was just like, ‘There’s no reason to hide who this is about.’ It’s all about her.
