What a treat: Robin Thicke poses on the cover of Treats! magazine with five completely nude models
Cover girl: Emily, shown in the Blurred Lines video, was on the cover of the Treats! magazine that Robin shared with the video's director and was immediately cast
Magazine homage: Robin said his Blurred Lines video was inspired by Treats! magazine
Paula Patton is one very open minded woman when it comes to her husband Robin Thicke being around scantily-clad women.
The Blurred Lines star has now revealed that his wife was the one who urged him to pose with five completely nude models on the cover of Treats! magazine.
The 36-year-old singer says that after he agreed to pose with the topless ladies, the actress suggested he 'go the whole way'.
Her idea: The Blurred Lines singer says that it was his wife Paula Patton's idea to do the racy cover
And that is just what he did, as he is seen on the front cover of the publication being fawned over by the naked stunners.
Thicke told Treats! that his cover shoot was the first time he had worked with completely nude models.
'It was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, ''Okay, let’s just do topless'' ...but, again, my wife and her friends were like, ''No way…go all the way.'' I think we definitely pushed the envelope,' he said.
Thicke also revealed that he found inspiration for his racy Blurred Lines video from the pages of Treats! magazine.
The 36-year-old singer and his collaborators scored the anthem of the summer with the catchy tune and gained notoriety with its uncensored video that got banned from YouTube.
Robin told Treats! that wife Paula also urged him to style the video based on the quarterly limited edition magazine.
'When I was talking to my wife (Paula Patton) and her friends about the video they said, ''Do something like Treats! because you love it so much,''' Thicke told magazine.
The quarterly magazine with an annual subscription rate of $119.95 describes itself as the intersection of sensual photography, fashion, art and engaging reading.
'I wanted to give homage where homage was due. We wanted to pay it all forward about our inspiration from Treats! for the Blurred Lines video,' Thicke said.
Thicke said he showed the third issue of the magazine featuring Emily Ratajkowski on the cover to video director Diane Martel.
'And she said, ''That's our girl!'' And she was cast,' Thicke said.
Emily was cast alongside two other semi-clad models in the video featuring rappers T.I. and Pharrell and her stock immediately skyrocketed.
The American model and actress appeared in GQ Magazine's July/August issue in a shoot by acclaimed celebrity photographer Tony Kelly.
Paula and Robin's marriage was recently engulfed by scandal after an Instagram picture emerged that appeared to show Robin groping a 20-year-old's bottom at an after party for the VMAs last month.
The Instagram snap in question showed him grabbing her backside in a particularly inappropriate manner - a moment captured thanks to the giant mirror behind them.
The fall issue of Treats! magazine wil be on newsstands on Sept. 16.
