Robbie Williams can never be accused of shying away from the truth after admitting that his performance at the 2013 BRIT Awards “wasn't amazing,” while also standing by his criticism of the awards ceremony in his new song.
The 'Candy' singer, who performed at the BRITS earlier this month alongside the likes of Taylor Swift and One Direction, released a new song this week titled 'The BRITS 2013' in which he describes himself as “showbiz chancer” while also blasting the awards ceremony as “dull, professional and timid.”

“I'm not saying that I was amazing at the Brits either,” Robbie told Radio 4's Front Row explaining his recent comments.
“I got on stage and turned around and looked at a dead hall. It's not their fault, but maybe they should have some punters in.”
Robbie continued: “The performance wasn't amazing. I didn't have anybody to vibe off in the audience. I'm not saying that's their fault. I'm a professional and should take care of that myself.”
“Unless you're Paul McCartney, there wasn't anybody at the awards ceremony who's not a chancer. You have to be a bit delusional to think you can do this job and then luck will get you there.”
“How you play your hand is up to you, but the majority of people who are in this business are all chancers.”
