Robbie Williams questions BRITs Icon Award honour

Published

on

Robbie Williams feels as though he’s “devaluing” the BRITs by receiving this year’s (17) Icon Award.

The Let Me Entertain You singer will be given the prestigious accolade at the 2017 BRIT Awards in London on Wednesday (22Feb17), following in the footsteps of musicians such as Elton John and David Bowie. Despite his successful career, both as a solo artist and a member of boyband Take That, Robbie isn’t sure if he’s worthy of the prize.

Asked by NME if the Icon Award is like an elevation of status, he replied: “It depends who they give it to next. Maybe I’m just devaluing the brand. Maybe it’s like the heavy descent. Maybe it’s (’90s pop band) S Club 7 next. I don’t know…

“There’s so much in my career where I look into the abyss and the abyss looks back and goes: ‘I don’t know, I don’t have a f**king clue.’ How have I got 18 BRITs and Paul McCartney hasn’t? Something weird has happened… Me having 18 BRITs – it’s like there’s a glitch in the Matrix. But, you know I’m not going to give them back and I’m glad it’s happened to me.”

Robbie is no stranger to hitting the headlines for his outspoken nature, and the 43-year-old says entertaining the public is his primary function. And while he’s tamed his antics in recent years, enjoying a quieter life with wife Ayda Field and their daughter Theodora, four, and two-year-old son Charlton, he still likes to surprise people.

“I do have limited creative skills and I find myself saying things that, at later inspection and later dates, I probably wouldn’t have said,” he mused. “I’m just trying to entertain and be funny all the time. I’m not really trying to be controversial but if what I say is funny and controversial at the same time then so be it and great.”

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump project is back, in a new location

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump art installation has passersby read the text “He will not divide us” as part of an Internet livestream. Though clearly that’s a sentiment about the new president, it’s also something LaBeouf and his collaborators are saying about the project’s first venue.

The “participatory performance artwork” by LaBeouf and collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner launched outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, but has since been shut down. According to LaBeouf’s site, the New York museum “abandoned the project” on Feb. 10, and the installation relocated to a wall outside the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, N.M. on Feb. 20.

The Museum of the Moving Image says that it shut down the project, because it “created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the Museum, its visitors, staff, local residents and businesses.” It continued: “While the installation began constructively, it deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested on the site of the installation and ultimately necessitated this action.”

The artist the museum is referring to? LaBeouf, who pulled the scarf off an unidentified 25-year-old man.

LaBeouf’s site explained the fallout with the New York museum this way: “From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing of our piece as a political rally, rather than as a participatory performance artwork resisting the normalisation (sic) of division ..It is our understanding that the museum bowed to political pressure in ceasing their involvement with our project … As of February 18, 2017, we are proud to be continuing HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US at the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque.”
