I’ve recently been renewing my love affair with cheeky monkey Robbie Williams and his fabulous catalog of catchy, clever poptastic tunes. It never ceases to annoy me that he’s not famous here and therefore hasn’t bothered touring the US again. When I was in England I bought his latest CD because it felt like a proper British thing to do 😉
Last night I found this video which made me love Robbie even more:
Robbie is such a fun and charismatic performer, it’s fabulous to see him take on an iconic performance like this one. The lyrics of this song Handsome Man are an entertaining notion of fame as a combination of cockiness and vulnerability that he does so very well. And this line in particular never ceases to make me giggle:
You can’t argue with popularity
Well you could
But you’d be wrong
It’s funny because it’s true!
