Robbie Williams on how people reacted to seeing him walking around Glastonbury: 'They thought, he's

Robbie Williams has spoken out about the infamous moment that he was pictured walking around Glastonbury with the members of Oasis in 1995.

He detailed that he felt 'looked down on' by the Indie worlds.

Speaking to the Guardian, he said: “There was a sort of indie fundamentalist mentality that was with us all the way through the 90s that was very apparent to me, where I was literally looked down on when I was in conversation with a lot of people in various drinking establishments. It was like people were scared that it was going to rub off on them; the Butlins redcoat or the Pontins bluecoat thing.”

He continued: “We live in a very different world than we used to. I don’t think someone who’d left a pop band would feel the same way now. You know, one of One Direction being seen walking around Glastonbury isn’t the same as me walking around Glastonbury in 1995."

“When I was at Glastonbury it felt like the rest of the festival was like: ‘What the fuck are you doing here, you cunt?'” he added. “And I sort of wanted to be OK with the big boys, I wanted to be accepted, there’s a playground mentality that carries on through life and at that time, I wanted to be accepted by the bullies, and that became part of the very fabric of my DNA: ‘Oh, I’ll be accepted by these people eventually, right, here’s my new album. Oh, they’re not accepting me, they’re not coming.'”

Robbie Eilliams recently released a comeback single in the form of 'Party Like A Russian'.
