Robbie Williams stopped by Radio Alice in San Francisco the other day. Robbie talked about all his tattoos, let the DJ cut some of the highlights out of his hair for a charity auction, he commented on his former mohawk, he gave his post-Oscar review, and how pal Nicole Kidman looked like she had just been Botoxed. Robbie was worried about what to say because he thought the British press were listening. They also goofed on the seriousness of Salma Hayek. Robbie says there is a shortage of unobtainable women at the show — but says Halle Berry should dump Eric Benet and go out with him. Audio and pictures have since been removed.
Robbie Says New Song Isn’t Anti-War
March 21, 2003 – Robbie Williams clarified his position over ‘Happy Easter (War Is Coming)’ a B-side track recorded for his next single ‘Come Undone’, insisting that it is not an anti-war song and that he supports the troops in Iraq.
“This song was written long before war began in Iraq and is categorically not a personal response to it,” he said. “This is in no way, shape, or form, my statement against the war in Iraq. The song is just that – a song. If I were to write an anti-war song, the lyrics would be a lot more poignant. I am not pro-war but I fully support the troops that are out in Iraq and I support democracy for the Iraqi people.”
