Robbie Williams, pop star and UFO hunter

Robbie Williams is back with his new album “The Heavy Entertainment Show”, his first to be released through Columbia Records/Sony Music. Million of fans adore the former Take That, who in his career sold over 75 million albums, but did you know that he is an UFO enthusiast? After the “Close Encounters Tour” (whose title is inspired to “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” movie) in 2006, while he was tooking a break, he contacted a journalist and asked him to go to a UFO conference in Arizona, which journalist didn’t, fearing for singer’s mental health.

Close encounters of the first kind

Robbie is not the only pop star interested in UFOs and aliens, but surely was for a long time literally obsessed about aliens, so much that in 2008 he claimed to have seen an alien near his recording studio, shortly after recording a track called “Arizona” (published in the 2009 “Reality Killed the Video Star” album), which is just about alien visitations.

Talking to journalists Robbie stated that an evening he was on a balcony “and there was this big ball of gold light that turned up - we thought it was Venus or Mars or something. When the song stops playing it disappears. But then we put Arizona on again and the ball turned back up. It happened four times” and Robbie was so much freaked out that he declared to be “seriously to be minded to go out and investigate these things. I’m stopping being a pop star and being a full-time UFO hunter”.

Two previous occasions for Robbie Williams

Luckily for his fans, Robbie chose to continue singing, but this wasn’t the only one contact he had, as maliciouses might think connected to the album’s promotion. First time the British singer had seen a UFO was when he was a kid, but more recently, while he was at the Beverly Hills Hotel, there was another sighting. “I was lying on my sun lounger outside at night, looking up. Suddenly about 300 foot above me, there was this square thing which just passed over my head silently and then shot off”. Might be that aliens love Robbie’s songs?
