Robbie Williams is back with a new song, the controversial – and amazing – ‘Party Like A Russian’. And man, we’ve missed Robbie and his ridiculous quotes. Here are 25 of the best from over the years.
"I'm a born entertainer. When I open the fridge door and the light goes on, I burst into song."
"An awful lot of gay pop stars pretend to be straight. I'm going to start a movement of straight pop stars pretending to be gay."
"I think dysfunctional people are being funnelled into very corporate behaviour. Look at the Brits... no one's fighting, and it's boring."
"I'm a bit of a slag... Some people don't think it's very nice, but I don't care... I've got hormones, and sex is there, so why not? Sex is good. Everybody does it, and everybody should!"
"I enjoy nakedness. I am a bit of a naturist at heart."
"The thing about drugs and sex is that you lose all your inhibitions. I've had sex in trains, planes, wine bars... and quite a few car parks!"
"I miss having someone to cuddle up and have an early night with. But I'm looking. Meanwhile, I'm having a few relationships that don't mean much."
"I think there are ghosts. I haven't seen or heard anything. I've definitely felt something, but it's not scary."
Speaking to a woman whose son had been abducted by aliens: “It must have been a terrible time for you, and an awful time for him. It's just so sad to hear it happens. It's happened to me… I think joining Take That was like leaving on a spaceship and coming back and all your friends going, 'He's weird now.'"
On Madonna in 2009: "She looks amazing. I can't believe she's 89 and looks like that."
"I picked up a TV set in my hotel room and walked right out of the building. My room was on the ground floor and I actually threw it back through the window, on to my bed."
"If I had my time again I'd like to be in Boyzone."
"What was I like [when I was 16]?" I had a high-pitched voice. Sounded a bit like a girl. Spoke with a Stoke accent, tremendously naive. Overconfident. Tremendously overconfident. And under-confident at the same time – really, really bad combination! Gets you places, though."
"I am the only man who can say he's been in Take That and at least two members of the Spice Girls."
"Scrap the OBE, [Gary Barlow's] got that now. Straight to Knighthood."
"I met Courtney Love and she said she'd like to sleep with me, but she couldn't cos of my "pop-star thing"... so I said to her I couldn't sleep with her either - cos of her 'ugly thing'."
"Some of the best times in my life happened under the influence of drugs... I'd still be doing it if I could make good judgement calls. I'd still be doing it if I didn't blow up to the size of an aircraft hangar, because it was a great time."
"When people come out of rehab, they usually go to secondary rehab for another six months and then enter back into society gradually. But I came out and did Top Of The Pops straight away!"
"Look at Paul McCartney, look at Elton John. They're jealous of Justin Timberlake. I'm sure they were jealous of me when I was in my imperial phase."
I'm quite open to the fact that I might be a tinfoil-hat freak."
"As a 29-year-old, the only thing that I can possibly think is that if I'm still performing at 50, it's because I'll have had disastrous marriages and I have to pay for them."
On his wife giving birth to his daughter: "It was like my favourite pub burning down."
On the room he uses to read articles about himself online: "I shouldn't call it my office. I should call it my adulation top-up room!”
"We'd probably have sex. That's what this is all about isn't it? I want him to be grateful for it. Let's get it out in the open. I want to shag Liam Gallagher."
From his pre-Take That CV: "I have only one ambition, which is to be famous.
