I loath this man, hate his music his smug face why do people like him he is so fucking dull please enlighten me to his popularity

TheCrumpetQueen Sun 13-Oct-13 12:57:00

Can't stand him either.

I dont like him either. He is so boring. His voice is monotone.

He isn't even attractive either.

sonlypuppyfat Sun 13-Oct-13 12:58:06

Thank you Crumpet you are a woman of considerable taste.

filee777 Sun 13-Oct-13 12:58:18

I think he is awful...

Tommy Sun 13-Oct-13 12:59:00

I share your pain....... I've always thought him dull

I think it's probably easy enough to get through life without ever being exposed to Gary Barlow if you put your mind to it.

I think he seems pleasant enough, he's written nice enough songs in his day - bit bland maybe but nothing to warrant your OP.

I liked him (well some of the take that songs) until he became an X factor judge. I don't like his personality on that and even if faked he was obviously happy to portray that.

poppymagnum Sun 13-Oct-13 13:00:58

I used to like him until he started x factor. Now I can't stand him. Haven't watched it since.

Overblown sense of self importance.

filee777 Sun 13-Oct-13 13:01:25

I have to agree, I go through whole years without thinking of Gary Barlow but I suppose if you like the X factor (which I don't) you have to put up with the smarmy barstard which makes it harder.

I'm not a fan of his either. Good to know I'm in good company.

FIFIBEBE Sun 13-Oct-13 13:11:21

He intrigues me. He has mentioned his addictive personality in some interviews. I think it must be difficult trying to be somebody publicly which is clearly an act. He is quite dull though I agree.

Pobblewhohasnotoes Sun 13-Oct-13 13:16:20

As an original take that fan, I love him.

catgirl1976 Sun 13-Oct-13 13:17:55

I never liked him before, but during this series of X Factor I have become very attracted to him blush

sonlypuppyfat Sun 13-Oct-13 13:19:18

I never liked Take That either. I really like music you see

grin

I managed it for years.

Having children exposes you to stuff you would otherwise never have heard of though.

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Sun 13-Oct-13 13:26:30

I've never been keen on him, but I know someone who works with him, and apparently he's a great bloke. I'm still a bit hmm about that...

SoleSource Sun 13-Oct-13 13:26:33

Dull dork.

TheCrumpetQueen Sun 13-Oct-13 13:29:05

I think he comes across as really mean and grumpy on xfactor, but not in the way Simon did, just a mean way

BasilBabyEater Sun 13-Oct-13 13:33:21

I think it's part of this fiction of XFactor etc. being "pantomime".

We're all supposed to pretend that the people on there aren't real and don't have real feelings, they're panto figures.

While at the same time having our heart-strings pulled over the sad stories.

A bit odd. I suspect GB's persona on that is this panto thing.

It's all perfectly awful and I tend to avoid it all nowadays.

PrimalLass Sun 13-Oct-13 13:41:13

I like him in TT, but not so much on his own. Would love another TT concert.

maras2 Sun 13-Oct-13 13:50:22

Is it a generation thing? My DD age 36 loves Garry Barlow and can't understand my inability to love and adore him too.Apparently I have no taste < and am an old gimmer > smile
