Probably one of Europe’s “bad boy” in the music industry because of his antics in the past showing his naked body in MTV, Robbie Williams shines again in a less controversial but definitely interesting stage in his life—fatherhood. Or to be exact being called a “Daddy” soon.
His recent post on Facebook showing his “Two Little Girls” shows the more human side of Williams – warm, caring and loveable. He also showed the natural trait of a man who is excited to see his newfound happiness, which is of having a child of his own.
My first memory of Robbie is still clearly etched on my mind. Back when he started to become popular all over the world, all I remember of him were his abs..and yes, his eyes—huge, penetrating and playful. I don’t particulary remember what song was that but I remember the video where I saw him walking slowly and starting to get naked—showing his abs and his muscles.
I was never a huge fan of him but still his music brings a certain uniqueness that made it distinct from the other popular music genre of his time and somehow stuck to mind what this guy can deliver. His antics too in the production of MTVs are like a constant discovery of what will be his next move that will surely shock viewers.
For conservative types, Robbie’s songs and MTV productions are not for them. But for an audience and a listener who wants something different and new, Robbie Williams will be part of That List.
It is even interesting to note that Robbie is actually a royalty in the UK after reaping awards and earning recognitions for his chosen craft. The song, which I now remember as entitled “Rock DJ” became so controversial, that it made its mark not just in the UK but the rest of the world.
Rock DJ was MTV Europe Music Awards’ “Best Song of 2000” and “Best Single of the Year” at the BRIT Awards and an MTV Video Music Awards for Best Special Effects. In 2004, Williams was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame after being voted as the “Greatest Artist of the 1990s”.
This guy is even super talented. He is actually a songwriter and a vocal coach. (Not to mention that he also acts sometimes). He was the youngest member of the British boy band Take That when he joined the group at the age of 16 and when he left the group, Robbie’s star shined even brighter.
But now, his star is showing a different kind of shine as he welcomes his new baby anytime next month with his wife Ayda.
He has even declined to appear in the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics because her wife’s due date is on the same day he is scheduled to sing on August 12. Robbie has to prioritize his hubby and daddy-to-be duties over an Olympic performance.
Such act of love only shows how warm a person Robbie Williams is, so unlike the first impression I made.
I won’t be surprised if I’ll be online in the following days searching and reading for any news about Robbie and his little princess.
