This is starting to become embarrassing ... Robin Thicke is still going on and on about the importance of forgiveness in a relationship -- all in an attempt to make amends with his ex Paula Patton.
Thicke performed to a packed house Friday night in Madison Square Garden ... and started preaching to the crowd about forgiving your family members ... no matter what the cause.
Thicke says, "We gotta learn to forgive each other, learn to love each other ... no matter who it is in your family or relationship ... 'cause you're always gonna need your friends and family."
... and a good divorce lawyer.
Need for a Mechanic

Talk about worst timing ever -- Aaron Paul's badass vintage ride OVERHEATED Thursday night outside the Hollywood premiere for "Need for Speed" ... a movie that's supposed to be about gearhead street racers ... you know, car experts.
The video is pretty fantastic -- Aaron handles the whole situation like a boss, laughing his ass off as steam billows out of his engine just feet away from the red carpet. His wife on the other hand ... she doesn't take it so well.
FYI, the car is a 1969 Ford Torino GT. Jesse Pinkman would approve.

3/7/2014 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne spiced things up last night ... making a hot man sandwich by twerking and grinding all over a dude in London.
M-Rod and Cara hit up Chinawhite nightclub after Beyonce's concert, and took over the dance floor with two of Bey's male dancers -- but the highlight was a menage a trois.
Because sometimes life is awesome ... the ladies ended up straddling one of the guys, and let's just say ... his legs are now very familiar with their crotches.
Stop reading. Start watching.
Nearly Hits Paris Pedestrians
We Gonna Run This Town ... Over

Rihanna was in a real hurry to dinner Friday night in Paris -- not only did she get a police escort to the restaurant ... her car nearly ran over a crowd of pedestrians in the process.
You can see it all in the video -- Rihanna's police escort breezes through a crosswalk ... and several pedestrians try to cross the street behind it ... but Rihanna's car cuts them off. It's a really close call.
Thankfully, Rihanna made it to dinner in one piece. (FYI, the restaurant's called Farnesina.)
Now shut up and drive.
I'm a Bona Fide Rock Chick Now
Performs in Vegas (Sort of)
3/3/2014 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One thing is undeniable ... Audrina Patridge is pretty ... out of tune when it comes to singing -- but that didn't stop her from rocking a legendary stage in Las Vegas this weekend.
The former "Hills" star went to Rock n' Roll Fantasy Camp at the House of Blues in Vegas and got to perform an original song with actual rockstar, Lita Ford.
It's unclear how many days Audrina spent at the camp -- but she obviously spent more time on her rocker chick moves (decent) than anything else.
Hey, at least she's living her dreams. Off key, but still ...
For the record, AP ... here's how it's done. Classic Lita.

'12 Years a Slave' Star
I Used to Pray For Lighter Skin
3/1/2014 7:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"12 Years a Slave" star Lupita Nyong'o says she repeatedly prayed to God asking for lighter skin during her adolescence ... because she thought having dark black skin was a curse.
Nyong'o was honored with an award on Thursday at a luncheon for Essence ... and said she was teased growing up for her "night-shaded skin" ... so she prayed God would change it.
Lupita says she was so ashamed she couldn't even look at herself in the mirror ... adding, "Every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I had been the day before."
The actress says supermodel Alek Wek -- one of the first dark skinned supermodels -- helped boost her confidence ... because people like Oprah praised her as a beautiful woman.
Nyong'o says she ultimately learned that beauty comes in all shades ... and hopes to be an inspiration to other young girls with similar concerns.

Gushes On Stage ...
I'm Lost Without Paula
2/28/2014 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke got back to performing tonight and wasted no time using the stage to beg for Paula Patton's mercy ... opening up to the crowd about the break-up and dedicating a song to her.
Thicke wore his wedding ring through the show in Fairfax, VA and told the crowd -- "For y'all that don't know me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman."
He also told fans he'd written the song "Lost Without U" for Paula ... before launching into the hit -- which we gotta say is kinda the perfect song for a guy trying to get back on a chick's good side.
Then again, Paula's heard this tune a hundred times.
Get Your Autograph Pen
Away from My Priceless White Sweater
2/27/2014 2:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
NEVER APPROACH KANYE WEST WITH A PEN -- especially if he's wearing a fancy sweater -- because after Yeezy's reaction in Paris this evening, you might as well be waving a knife in his face.
Kanye was leaving dinner moments ago when an autograph seeker asked the rapper for some love -- holding out a pen ... and a sneaker to sign.
The pen came within inches of Kanye's pristine white sweater -- and Yeezy nearly lost it.
You gotta see it. Ye's reaction is almost worth as much as his threads.
All Smiles After Split
NO WEDDING RING
2/27/2014 8:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paula Patton can still put on a happy face -- just days after announcing her separation from husband Robin Thicke, Paula arrived in L.A. with a big smile ... and no wedding ring.
The couple announced they were splitting this week -- and as we reported, the marriage meltdown stemmed from Robin's scandalous behavior with other women ... Miley Cyrus in particular.
Robin has pulled out all the stops to save his marriage -- canceling several tour dates -- but Paula's not budging.
The Opposite of Violent
With Camera-Wielding Fan
2/26/2014 6:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West is best when Kanye is East ... because not only did he resist attacking an in-his-face, camera-wielding fan ... he summoned the guy back for the photo op he so aggressively wanted.
Here's what happened ... Kanye was in NYC, leaving a building for his van, when a random guy yanked out his cell phone and went for a cheek-to-cheek selfie.
Kanye is calm, but his hired muscle swats the fan's arm and thwarts the pic.
A few minutes later ... the fan is summoned back to the van but there are strings attached. Kanye promises to take a pic with the guy if the paparazzi turn their cameras off ... and they oblige.
The fan gets his pic, no one gets hurt and it's a happy day in the Big Apple.

Simon Cowell knows more about caring for infants than you think, and says ... medically, there's NO issue with his little beach vaca with his baby.
Simon and Lauren Silverman were out for dinner last night in Miami -- sans baby Eric -- when he fired back at critics (like us) who said it probably wasn't a great idea to take their 10-day-old baby out for a day on the beach.
Simon says Eric is "very healthy" ... and added the whole trip was doc approved.
Probably can't say the same for his extremely exposed chest.
Rihanna & Drake
Rendezvous in Paris
2/25/2014 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paris ain't called the City of Love for nothing -- Rihanna and Drake are both in town ... and they can't stay away from each other.
Drake is in Paris for a concert -- he performed last night -- but he and Rihanna have been hanging out since the weekend ... grabbing a fancy dinner at Paris's famous L'Avenue restaurant Sunday.
Rihanna re-connected with Drake at his concert the next day ... slipping in the rear entrance.
After last night's concert, the on-again off-again couple hit up a nightclub ... and from there, we're told they both crashed at the Hyatt hotel, where Drizzy has a room.
Guess that means they're on again.
