Pop icon also shares his thoughts on sex addiction in a new interview.
Robbie Williams has stripped naked for the cover of gay magazine Attitude.
The pop icon, who dropped new album ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’ yesterday (November 4), is interviewed by John Grant for the magazine. Grant duets with Williams on ‘I Don’t Want To Hurt You’, a track from the new album.
During the interview, Williams shared his thoughts on being a recovering sex addict, telling Attitude: “Sex addiction does exist — it does. It totally does.”
“Depression was a taboo subject but it’s not demeaned any more,” he added. “Slowly it is happening. People talking about sex addiction will become commonplace and normalised because it should be.”
Meanwhile, Williams has recently revealed that he felt “looked down on” by indie fans when he turned up at Glastonbury in 1995.
Speaking to The Guardian, he said: “There was a sort of indie fundamentalist mentality that was with us all the way through the ’90s that was very apparent to me, where I was literally looked down on when I was in conversation with a lot of people in various drinking establishments.”
He added: “It was like people were scared that it was going to rub off on them; the Butlins redcoat or the Pontins bluecoat thing.”
Williams has also dismissed reports claiming his new single ‘Party Like A Russian’ had offended Russians.
“I’m grateful for the column inches, I could have released a ballad and not got any column inches, but I think it might actually be my biggest hit in Russia,” he said.
