Robbie Williams has said Jessie J won't be a popular singer for much longer.

The Take That man believes the 'Do It Like A Dude' singer doesn't have long left in the music industry, as he told a Dutch TV show that she'll be finished in 18 months' time.

According to The Sun, when asked of his opinion on Jessie J, Robbie Williams said: "She's not gonna last for very long, though, is she? She's great, Jessie. I give her 18 months."

Williams also took a pot shot at TV musical talent competitions, such as Jessie J's The Voice and the X Factor, which has his bandmate Gary Barlow as one of the show's judges, saying he gets "exhausted" by them.

"I don't watch it. Sometimes it's very difficult to go on the 'emotional journey with the contestants'," he explained. "I'm exhausted with how many times I'm to go on the emotional journey with this person who had a hard luck story and then da, da, da, da, blah, blah."

Meanwhile, Robbie Williams is set to be Number One on both the Official Singles Chart and the Official Albums Chart today (November 11). In the midweek chart update, he was top of both charts with album 'Take The Crown' and single 'Candy' both outselling their nearest rivals.

'Candy' last week topped the singles chart, becoming the third fastest selling single of 2012 after its release on October 28. Williams also recently admitted that the song sounds a lot like the music used in the TV adverts for Haribo sweets.
