Robbie forced postman to listen to new album

And Finally

Robbie Williams

Prior to its release, Robbie Williams was worried that his new album ‘Take The Crown’ was no good, and, being too close to it to form a proper critical opinion, he sought the opinion of as many third parties as possible. These apparently included anyone who came anywhere near his property.

Williams told The Sun: “I’ve been having all sorts of people come in and have a listen – the mail man, the dustman, people delivering things from Amazon… I said, ‘Come and have a listen to this. What do you think should be the first single? Is it good?’ You see, this is a really important album for me. Every album is important but this one definitely shows where I am in today’s society and pop culture”.

Presumably the conclusion the postman et all reached was that Robbie’s now irrelevant to teenagers and slightly less important than Westlife.
