Take That singer Robbie Williams has hit out at Jessie J, claiming that she will not have a very long career in the music industry. Robbie stated that, while he does think she is very lovely, he cannot see her lasting much longer than the next 18 months.
Talking on a Dutch TV show, Williams explained, “She's not gonna last for very long, though, is she? She's great, Jessie. I give her 18 months.” In another dig at Jessie J, Robbie also went on to admit that he is not a fan of the show The Voice either.
He told The Sun, “I don't watch it. Sometimes it's very difficult to go on the 'emotional journey with the contestants'. I'm exhausted with how many times I'm to go on the emotional journey with this person who had a hard luck story and then da, da, da, da, blah, blah. I'm sure I'd be a good judge. But no, I've got a career. So...”
Robbie Williams was recently at the centre of a war of words with Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw, after the breakfast show host claimed that Robbie was too old and not relevant. However, Robbie Williams is enjoying the last laugh with success in both the single’s and the album charts.
