Robin Thicke's flair for starting a party just landed him the ultimate party gig -- grand marshal of the New Orleans Mardi Gras parade.
Robin will reign as Bacchus -- named after the Roman god of wine -- at the 52nd annual parade, which takes place on February 23rd. He'll ride the lead float and serve as MC for the festivities, just like his late dad,Alan Thickedid back in 1988.
Robin says, “I rode on the King’s Float with my father when I was a boy and it was one of the best experiences I ever had with him. I’m equally excited to have my son Julian, my daughters Miaand Lolaand my fiancée April celebrate the weekend with me.”
