ROBBIE Williams wants your nan to give him £15 for an album he took no pleasure in making and she will get no pleasure from listening to.
Williams’s new CD, a double album of new Christmas songs and old standards, has been produced because he has a house in Los Angeles the upkeep of which does not pay for itself.
A spokesperson for the singer said: “Your nan doesn’t have to give us the money herself. You could buy it for her. That’s why we called it The Christmas Present.
“But either way money’s changing hands, and it’s coming from you to us.
“Is it any good? You know, that’s something I don’t think any of us considered during the entire process of recording, promoting and release. I don’t think it’s relevant.
“What’s important here is that it’s a new album by Robbie, that your nan will vaguely want it, and that £15 will change hands in a way it rarely does in the music business these days.”
Your nan said: “Robbie? Oh yes, I do like him.
“Or am I thinking of that Michael Bublé? No. No, he’s the one who can sing.”
