It's only a matter of time before fame goes to head of a celebrity and it's time to call for the men in white coats. Robbie Williams was probably one such person but thankfully he copped on to himself just in time. The Angels singer has admitted his obsession with aliens made people think he was 'weird'. Cheeky chappy Robbie developed a fascination with space stuff after getting 'burnt out' by his pop career and decided to turn his attention to fashion when he realised his new hobby was affecting his public image - and making him pile on the pounds.
Commenting on his quirky behaviour, Robbie said: 'Ever since I was 16 all I have been doing is make album, promote album, tour album... and I did that for 20 years... Then I got a bit burnt out and I was looking for something else. I thought that something else was making documentaries about UFOs... But that wasn't going to work out for me. It just made me weird and - at the time - fat. Weird and fat, looking at UFOs... So I thought I would reverse out of this situation, which was a PR nightmare, and my management put the idea [of a clothing line] to me.'
Robbie suffered quite a bit of flack for this in the past for his interest in outer-space, most notably when he claimed a UFO had visited him in his studio right after he penned a track about aliens: 'I had just finished writing a song called 'Arizona', which is about alien abduction, when there was this glow. It was magic.' Riiiiiight. *backsawayslowly*
