Robbie Williams Has Given Up Trying To Crack America: "I Don't Want To Work That Hard!"

24 July 2013, 11:18

The 'Goin' Crazy' singer says he hasn't had ambitions to break America at all for the past decade.

Robbie Williams says he has given up trying to crack the American music market and is happy with his success in other parts of the world.

The 'Candy' singer admits he has had no desire to make it big in the US for some time now, and doesn't want either the heavy workload of promoting across the country or the huge fame that could come with it.

Robbie reveals that despite the relative success of his greatest hits collection 'The Ego Has Landed' in America back in 1999, he has since opted not to return to the country to promote his records again.

"When I released my compilation album 'The Ego Has Landed' I went to America for two months to promote it," Robbie told Croatian newspaper Vecernji List, ahead of his 'Take The Crown' show in Zagreb, Croatia this week.

"The album sold one million copies. That was not bad," he explained. "But I don't want to work that hard. I've concluded not to try it again.

"After that I did not promote any album in the US," Robbie added. "A lot of fame can be exhausting. I would hardly be able to cope with it [in America]."

Earlier this month Robbie was one of the prime names linked to a potential role signing up as a vocal coach on the next series of The Voice UK.

Robbie Williams is currently taking his 'Take The Crown' stadium tour across Europe.
