Robbie Williams 'too emotional and temperamental' to be an X Factor judge
The 'Angels' hitmaker explained to the Daily Star newspaper that he would be far too emotionally invested in both the show and its contestants to deal with its dramatic ups and downs and thinks he would crack under the pressure:
"I would like to be a judge for a night but not four months. I was sat out there today thinking, 'Wow, this is great'. But that's all it is, a great day."
"I don't think Gaz feels pressure. He's not like me, he's not temperamental or emotional. He goes in, gets the job done and leaves. If I was doing it, I would desensitise myself to the emotion. But I would find it difficult. How do you break a 16 year old's heart? Who wants to do that?"
He did, however, reassure fans that Barlow is definitely the right man for the job and added supportively:
"The ones that are going to make it need a protective arm guiding them. Gary knows what he's doing. He speaks with authority and when I work with him, he's got a better angle on this business."
"So I know he's in a better position up there saying what he's saying than I would be. When it comes to anything else other than music, he's not competitive at all. But he's passionate about music and he wants to win."
