One for the scrapbooks? Robin Thicke just can't escape his provocative performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards. The "Blurred Lines" singer, 36, was in Paris, France, on Tuesday, Oct. 15, when a male fan approached him for an autograph. The memento he wanted signed? A commemorative photo of Thicke onstage at the VMAs, with a nude-latex-clad Cyrus, 20, bent over suggestively in front of him, her derriere pointed straight at the camera.

The married star -- his wife is Baggage Claim actress Paula Patton -- gamely obliged the autograph seeker, leaving his swift John Hancock in gold on the racy picture, which the fan proudly showed off to photographers.

Thicke's hyper-sexual duet with Cyrus is almost two months old at this point, but it's still very much in the news. Both singers are asked about the performance, and the controversy it sparked, in almost every interview.

Speaking about the collaboration with Oprah Winfrey recently, Thicke said the resulting uproar was "funny" and "silly."

"I was onstage, [so] I didn't see it," he said of the performance, which featured the former Hannah Montana star grinding against Thicke's crotch and touching herself with a foam finger. "So to me, I'm walking out toward Miley, I'm not thinking sex, I'm thinking fun...I'm singing my butt off. I'm singing and I'm looking at the sky and I'm singing and I'm not really paying attention to all that. That's on her."

"People ask me if I twerk, and I'm like, 'Listen, I'm the twerkee.' I don't twerk," he explained. "I'm just twerked upon."

Beyond that, he told Vanity Fair, the twerking was just in good fun. "I spent my whole career playing it safe, being a gentleman, never doing anything controversial," he said in the November issue of the magazine. "They told me [beforehand] that Miley's going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over...I just said, 'I don't care, let's entertain the people.'"
