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.”
“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.”

“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’m quite open to the fact that I might be a tinfoil-hat freak.”
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.
