Badly Drawn Boy star DAMON GOUGH has spoken out in support of Robbie Williams, blaming fame for the pop singer's current stay in rehab. Williams was admitted to a clinic in the US on Tuesday (13FEB07), his 33rd birthday, to battle his dependency on prescription drugs. And while some including Oasis brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher have little sympathy for Williams, Gough sympathises with the pressures that come with superstardom. He says, "I empathise with what Robbie is going through. I've met him a few times and he seemed to be dealing with his level of fame. Everyone looks at someone like him and says, 'He's just a show-off and loves attention.' "Talking about yourself incessantly in interviews, being onstage where you are the centre of attention, writing songs that are going to be scrutinised, being famous and being spotted in the street - it all makes you feel really strange. "Fame - it's just a weird thing and it does psychologically affect you."

The Gallaghers are the most vile creatures on the face of the earth! I am stunned at the level of cruelty in their remarks about Robbie Williams and others, as well. Oh well, I suppose that their meaness comes from a jealous place in their black tiny hearts and from the knowledge that they look like little zoo animals...which one is it? A ferret or a lemur?

I doubt it, yvie. Talk about 2 people who are perennially unhappy. They are just hateful people. I can't believe they have procreated! God help us.

An intelligent comment at last. When the Gallaghers are as famous as Rob maybe they'll understand the pressures he's under. Maybe, doubtful though.

boysintheband: What meds are you on?? It says he's addicted to PRESCRIPTION meds not over the counter ones. Hope people have a good laugh at your expense if you ever have a serious health issue someday. You and the Gallagher Bros. need a swift kick to the head...
