Robbie Williams Praises “Handsome” Adam Lambert, Requests A Collaboration
Robbie Williams has come a long way since his early-’90s days as a scrappy, floppy-haired member of British boy band Take That. (In fact, he even re-joined Take That 15 years after leaving the group, back in 2010…so make that a long, long way.) But the 41-year-old crooner, who’s released 10 solo albums and racked up seven chart-topping singles in his home country, is still humble enough to recognize great talent when he sees and hears it.
During an interview with New Zealand radio program The Polly And Grant Show, Williams had nothing but praise for fellow pop singer Adam Lambert, who will be playing his very first UK festival on August 30 when he takes the stage at Fusion.
“On the TV he’s really, really beautiful, he’s stunning and he’s got the most amazing voice,” Williams said during his chat, as reported by TV3 Ireland. “He’s a bit Elvisy, isn’t he?'”
Robbie’s most recent album, Swings Both Ways, found him pairing up with the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Olly Murs, Michael Buble and Lily Allen for duets. During his Polly And Grant interview, he made it clear he’d like to extend the collaborative process by recording something with Lambert.
“He’s really handsome and strikes me as a nice person,” Robbie said. “I should sing something with him. Will you tell him I said, ‘Hi’ and send my love and I said we should do something?”
Lambert’s latest album, The Original High, was released in June, and contains pair-ups with Tove Lo and Brian May. As for hitting the studio with Robbie Williams, well, the ball is now in Adam’s court.
