Robbie Williams Reveals His Feelings About Death: "I Want To Be Buried In LA"

The 'Candy' singer says he no longer fears death as it's "inevitable".
Robbie Williams has opened up about what he wants to happen when he dies, and says he now wishes to be buried in Los Angeles near his family
The 'Different' singer says he had always thought he would want to be laid to rest in his hometown of Stoke-on-Trent in England, but now feels he would rather be interred in California.
"The thing about Stoke, my heart seems to be there. I have an interesting dilemma," Robbie said in his new podcast last week. "If we stay in Los Angeles and this is our home for the rest of time, I'm not going to want to be buried at Stoke-on-Trent.
"When I am back in Stoke, my favourite place to visit is my grandma's grave at Tunstall Cemetery," the 'Candy' singer explained. "I have always though that is where I would end up, at the cemetery.
"But now because I have an American bird as my wife, and I plan to be with her for the rest of time, Ayda's grandma is in a cemetery over here […] just down the road from our house," he continued. "Her grave is constantly in the sun, it's a nice place to end up."

The Take That star went on to say he is no longer afraid of dying because he now understands that it is "inevitable".
"I don't feel sad about it for some reason, it's an inevitability," he added.
Last week Michael Buble opened up about his new collaboration with Robbie, and said fans can expect a very fun song when it gets unveiled.
