Robbie 'I don't want to be solo anymore'
Thursday 07 October 2010
Take That fans will popping open the champagne corks if Robbie William’s latest statement is to be believed. Apparently the popstar doesn’t want to be a solo star anymore.
The recently married star admitted: ‘For now, I don’t feel like going into the studio to continue my solo career.’
The bombshell comes as he continues to plug his greatest hits album, In And Out Of Consciousness, despite returning to the UK’s favourite man-band after a 15-year feud. (15 years? We thought it was only girlbands who did drama?)
The singer is currently dueting with old bandmate Gary Barlow in the charts this week and has an album and tour with Take That lined up. Indeed, we at Closer can’t wait for the band’s new single, The Flood, to hit the airwaves on Friday morning.
As a solo star, 36-year-old Robbie has flogged 55million records worldwide and pulled himself seven No.1 hits – but his last was in 2004 with Radio. And while we liked the tune, it was certainly no Angels.
But we also have to worry whether this could signal the end of Robbie’s time in the music industry. Barlow recently said that Robbie’s stint with Take That could be short-lived. (Nooo!)
‘It’s 20 years since we began and we agreed to do a oneoff album and maybe a oneoff tour would be great this year,’ he described.
‘But I think once we’ve done that, Rob will go back to being Rob and we’ll go back to being a four.’
Robbie now wants to focus on being an adult after revealing his baby plans with wife Ayda Field.
Just yesterday he revealed that he has a particular aspiration for his first born.
Robbie told The Sun: 'I want to get it over and done with and get IVF - what is it where you get the injections? I want a gay one. We've talked about it and that's what we want, whatever it is.'
Good luck with the baby plans Rob!
