Robbie Williams performs live on stage as part of the Apple Music Festival 2016 at the Roundhouse, Camden, London.

Robbie Williams has said that eventually his music career will kill him. In an interview with the Sunday times magazine Robbie Williams has opened up about his battle with anxiety, depression and agoraphobia and even said that his music career will kill him. Telling the magazine “This job is really bad for my health. It’s going to kill me. Unless I view it in a different way.”. Robbie thinks he wouldn’t be so mentally unstable if he wasn’t famous telling the magazine..
“[Depression] sprints through my family. I don’t know if I’d be this mentally ill without fame,” he said.
“I don’t think it would be as gross or as powerful if it hadn’t have been for fame. You get a magnifying glass in the shape of the world’s attention and your defects will obviously magnify too.”
In the interview Robbie explained how he is a “chronic people-pleaser” and it is his desire to appease fans that is having negative impact on his health due to “a sort of exasperation”, as he finds many social situations traumatic. Robbie also admitted taking anti depression to help treat his depression and anxiety. However despite his troubles the singer said that his wife Ayda Field who he has been married to for 7 years and 2 children with has been his saving grace saying “She has the smarts to know how to not sink the ship, and I just want to sink the ship to see what it looks like.”

  1. Maybe he shouldn’t push himself too much. Also when your as rich as some of these people they think that being famous is there purpose when in actual fact life is more meaningful than that. Maybe he should use his “people pleasing” to help homeless people and the less fortunate even more rather than just entertaining crowds of people like a performing monkey?
