He’s made quite a name for himself thanks to his shocking onstage performance and music video, and now Robin Thicke reveals his excitement for his booming career in the January 2014 issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine.

Rocking designer duds from Dolce & Gabbana and David Yurman for the Rainer Hosch-shot spread, the "Blurred Lines" hit-maker chatted about his stardom and how his wife Paula Patton is handling the new attention.

Highlights from Mr. Thicke's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Los Angeles Confidential!

On his new popularity:
“Yeah, it’s been a long, f---ing night. A lot happened on the way to 2013. I was like Rocky hitting the meat for a couple of decades and then suddenly getting my shot at the title. I feel like I should run around inside the ring with my arms up.”

On his favorite childhood memory:
“Meeting Molly Ringwald rocked. I think I was around 9 or 10 and I was a huge fan of ‘The Breakfast Club,’ ‘Sixteen Candles,’ all that stuff. We were at a Dodgers game, and my dad heard Molly was there. [He asked me], ‘Do you want to go meet her?’ Next thing I know, [it was] ‘Oh my God, Molly Ringwald.’ It was everything I could do not to pass out.”

On his quotes and Paula:
“Obviously, she was very excited. She’s supported me from day one. Sometimes she rolls her eyes. Things [I say] get misconstrued in interviews and then debated. So some of it’s pretty weird. I call these good problems because it means you’re being talked about. The rest of it you just try to manage day by day. My number-one priority is being a good person. I try to teach my little kid that every day. But, yeah, I have a big mouth. The only difference is, if I said something stupid at a dinner party before this year, nobody would read my quotes back to me the next day out of context.”

On his future:
“A little more touring and finally getting back into the studio. It’s been so strange not writing music all the time, especially with everything going on in my head and heart right now. Since I was 11 or 12, I’ve been writing songs every week, but this year I’ve gotten sidetracked. So I’m really excited to make new music.”
