What’s not to love about Robbie Williams? He can sing, dance and transfix a crowd with his charisma and the feeling that he’s “one of us”. I witnessed this first hand last month in Singapore at his outdoor concert.
Just before he came on at 10.30pm the rain started pelting down and didn’t stop for his whole performance. Instead of sheltering under cover with the rest of his band he came out and was saturated within minutes as he put on a magical show. It made for an unforgettable experience.
So too is the birth of your child. But when it’s Robbie Williams’ child, it’s SHOWTIME!
Thanks to some nifty live tweeting the whole world joined Robbie as his wife Ayda Field went through labour and gave birth to their second child. Words, videos and pictures caught every stage of the process.
You can say that he has one INCREDIBLY understanding wife; and you’d be right. But given the number of retweets, favourites and news stories you could also ask why we need to voraciously devour every detail of celebrities’ lives. It’s as if their music, movies and books etc. are no longer enough. This pressure seems to compel some celebrities to allow access into parts of their lives that for most of us are incredibly private.
All of this begs a very human question though: if the performance never ends and the lights never go down, what happens to that person when we inevitably lose interest?
