I just don't get it......

On the radio this morning I heard a song called Rudebox by a completely useless, no talented jackass called Robbie Williams. And the past few hours these two questions have been plaguing me. Why? WHY? Why do they give something this bad airplay on the radio? And why was he allowed to record the song (or any other song for that matter) in the first place?
Imagine a new and unknown band sending this as a demo song to a record company. How many days do you think it would take before the A&R's stopped laughing, so they could ask them if they seriously believed that anyone would listen to this garbage?
We are so scaringly close to The Emperor's New Clothes that it's almost insane. A few people tell us that he's wearing the finest of clothes, though all of us can (or at least most of us should be able to) see that he's butt naked....but no one dares saying anything!

I hate (it's a strong word I know!) Robbie Williams. But I hate even more the big fraud going on that has lead so many people to believe that his albums, concerts, merchandise etc. are worth their money!

Dear Morten, I have the answer of all your questions. The reason to give RW airplay is: he look damn good, have many cool tatoos and he has 20 million female fans. That`s the reason.

Thanks Peter! I was probably just naive, but I thought airplay had something to do with musical talent? How wrong I was :-(

Hm. No. Two words. Cliff. Richard.

Surprisingly, I haven't heard the RW travesty in my bubble... not sure it's had that much play over here, although it'd go top 10 with no play anyway...Maybe I'm the only living girl in Europe who hates RW anyway...

I have a much bigger battle to fight- how the HELL can you stop a guy who otherwise has great taste from liking Lily bleedin' Allen and Lady fecking Soverign?
