Robbie Williams Wants To Upset People Like Matty Healy

Robbie Williams has lamented the “boring” state of the current music scene, whilst hailing The 1975’s Matty Healy the “only commercially viable Pop/Rock star” who is “willing to be something other than beige.”

Robbie has vowed that he himself he’s going to get his “rebellious streak” back that he shares with the outspoken Matty and start offending people, because he’s tired of people fearing cancel culture.

In a new Instagram post, he penned: “How boring is the music scene right now? Im not attacking the music itself. im just lamenting the death of friction, danger, personality,

I’ll admit I’ve vanilled myself into a corner trying to chase what’s gone. I get it everyone’s scared. No one knows what you’ll say that will get you cancelled.

No one knows what you’ve already said or written that will end you. So many people to offend.

“Matt Healy is the only commercially viable Pop/Rock star that I can see who is willing to be something other than beige. I really like Matt he’s unhinged, super smart, super talented and willing to upset. Upsetting for a cause. The cause being a complicated inner life a rebellious streak and boredom.

“I’ve gotta get some of that energy back in my musical life. Like I say ‘’so many people to offend’’ I hope I have time to fit them all in.

“It’s time to take the **** again…and im looking forward to it. (sic)”

Matty’s rebellious actions include The 1975 being banned from Malaysia, where same-sex activity is illegal, after he protested the laws by kissing his male bassist Ross MacDonald during their show at the Good Vibes Festival in Kuala Lumpur last summer.

Matty’s own bandmates have also had to cut his microphone when he got a bit too outspoken onstage.

Healy also made some controversial comments on podcasts, including branding Ice Spice, 24, a “chubby Chinese lady”.

During a concert at the Hollywood Bowl last October, the artist addressed his actions, claiming he was playing the role of a “21st-century rock star”, and apologised to those he hurt.

He told the crowd: “Because some of my actions have hurt some people, I apologise to those people, and I pledge to do better moving forward. I think it’s also important that I express my intentions, so everybody knows that there is no ill will coming from me.

“You see, as an artist, I want to create an environment for myself to perform where not everything that I do is taken literally… I’ve kind of performed exaggerated versions of myself on other stages, be it print or on podcasts and in an often-misguided attempt at fulfilling the kind of character role of the 21st-century rock star – so, it’s complicated.

“Sometimes playing pretend is the only way you can truly find out who you are, and you could probably also say that men would rather do offensive impressions for attention than go to therapy.”
