The bit about Lovelight being a Daft Punk song is bob on. Could have come straight off Random Access Memories. Never paid it much attention before, it’s a banger

Oh he better not doing all orchestral versions when I see him

I doubt he will, he knows exactly how all that material works best. Also, you know Robbie - if it was going to be orchestral it would be ‘An Evening With Robbie Williams and the Fantastic Burslem Orchestra’ or something, and all the promo would be him in a tux. He can’t resist it.

Some really great bits in this

Our conversation has turned to Damon Albarn’s much-criticised assertion, made back in January, that “Taylor Swift doesn’t write her own songs” and that her co-writing “doesn’t count”. Robbie, who has co-written five of his seven Number One singles to date… erm – well, let’s just say that he doesn’t agree solo songwriting is more credible than collaboration.

“I think that when people say that,” he muses, “what they’re actually doing is having a wank about themselves. It’s true! You know, it’s like, why don’t you cut the middle man out – just get a few ribs removed and give yourself a nosh, you twat!”

When Robbie agreed to a few DJ gigs in Ibiza recently, he assumed he’d just be expected to spin the tunes and enjoy a brief respite from pop stardom. It didn’t work out that way.

“The first gig I did,” he says, “was 2000 people screaming, stood still, staring at the stage. I was like, ‘Oh… fuck! I’ve still got to entertain them! Shit!’ It was so weird. I was dancing and smiling like a loon, and then I got my Mac on the stage.

I was Googling, ‘What do garage MCs say?’ It looked like I was setting up the next track, but I wasn’t. I’d get on the mic and go” – he puts on an authoritative DJ voice – “‘Inside! This one’s for the ladies! Watch for the drop!’” I was actually just reading it off the screen.
