We haven't had a Robbie thread for a while so why not.
Just read this and it's really interesting - not so much a biography as a study of how wierd and horrendous it is to be that famous. I ended up feeling so, so sorry for him - and fairly convinced that he might not be gay.
Got this at Christmas, and was pleasantly surprised with it. Thought it'd be one of those books that I wizzed through in a couple of hours as a lightweight read, but took me much longer. Agree with you on the feeling sorry for him part- I could help him get over it all!!!
I think this one is much better written than Nobody/Somebody whatever it was - very interesting whether you're a Robbie fan or not.
I think he's a brilliant entertainer but can't really fancy him now because it's made me pity him so much (IYKWIM?)
Not exactly put me off - just made me feel even more of a dirty wobbly old lady for perving over him when he's clearly so tormented. Plus he apparently farts constantly, which isn't hugely appealing.
It made me think about Michael Jackson a bit too - if Robbie's totally f*cked because of being hugely famous since his teens, then no wonder Michael Jackson's a freak.
