    Robbie Williams thinks modern pop stars are "boring" because they don' take drugs and diss one and other

    The 'Mixed Signals' singer thinks it's "weird" that artists aren't as rock 'n' roll as they used to be, with antics which were all the rage in the 90s such as trashing hotel rooms and feuding with your peers - like he did with his rival Liam Gallagher - all going out of fashion.


    Robbie blames it on the fact they are not taking strong enough substances or drinking enough booze.

    In an interview with NME magazine, he said: "We were a different breed back then [in the 90s] - cussing and dissing and needing to say things in order to be interesting. I don't think people do that now. It was expected of everybody to be drunk and off their face on cocaine. People don't do that now - it seems so f***ing weird ... If people did that now, it would just look a bit sad. I think it just depends what drugs are out there at the time. What's out there at the moment? Ketamine? Or am I out of date on that?"

    However, the 43-year-old singer - who is now sober and doesn't drink or take any drugs - admits that he often regrets opening his mouth and saying controversial things, but insists he's just trying to "entertain" people rather than be a "neutral artist".

    He said: "I like to entertain. I do have limited creative skills and I find myself saying things that, on later inspection, I probably wouldn't have said. I'm just trying to be funny all the time.

    "There are so many boring pH7 neutral artists out there that it's not difficult standing out."
