Robbie Williams: 'I feel for Harry Styles'
Robbie Williams has revealed that he feels for Harry Styles because of the press intrusion into his personal life.
The 38-year-old, who this week premiered the video to new single, 'Candy,' told The Sun that things were very different when he was growing up with Take That:
“I feel a bit for Harry. At his age I was in this lilywhite boyband, Take That. But I was meeting up with mates, jumping out of the tour bus and into a Transit van at motorway service stations all around the country.
“It’s not a secret any more but I would get off my face and have complete anonymity. No one had a camera phone so I could go and enjoy myself properly. Harry is finding out it’s not so easy for him.”
“It’s only natural a lad in a boyband will be compared to me at some point. Everybody is a ladies’ man or a man’s man, whatever your persuasion might be. He’s just having a nice time. I see Harry through bitter-getting-old-and-married-and-can’t-do-all-of-that-any-more eyes.
“Also, I’ve got a lot of love for him and One Direction. On the pie chart, the love outweighs the bitterness — but the bitterness is in there too.”
