Everything Changes For Robbie Williams

Oh, Robbie Williams, how quickly things have slid south. MTV has reported that the midweek U.K. chart position for his latest single, "She's Madonna," is a deadly #17. If it stays there by Sunday, it'll make his second-lowest-charting single in England, followed by "Sin Sin Sin" (#22). Where to put the blame: The Pet Shop Boys? Robbie's rehab stint? Or, perhaps, his day has finally come and gone.

Ironically, Take That, who Robbie turned down reforming with, are tipped to retain their #1 position with "Shine" for a second week.

Vote for which classic pop jam shoulda made it to #1, in the sidebar.

    Let's face it, it's not that good a single. When I heard that the PSBs were gonna work with Robbie I was excited to hear what they'd come up with. Only to be disapointed with the 2 so so tracks on his album.

    Having said that, it's still better than the other crap that's currently in the UK charts.

    The recent addiction problems certainly didn't help in the UK.
    It's top 5 in Germany, though. Bless.

    Is it getting airplay there? Does Austria have its own chart, or is it included with the German one?

    Also, did any of the songs in the poll to the side make it to #1 in Germany, by chance?

    The wig didn't help, either. Ugh. What a vile idea, and a sad waste of talented drag queens in the video.

    Frankly I blame the wig as well. PopJustice clocked it when they said it was Victoria Newton on the cover.

    These polls--they always surprise me! Right when you put it up, it looked like, once again, the one I didn't know was going to end up winning. And Cassie beating Real McCoy?

    I still need to listen to that Robbie album all the way through...

    robbie seems to give up on his albums just about the same time the public do. Sin Sin Sin was released way too long after ADvertising Space and this has had much too long a gap after Lovelight. He's become westlife - two singles in the rush to christmas and then a long break. mcfly are in danger of falling into that trap too :(

    He'll be back.

    There is some goodness on the CD. "Kiss Me" is very good..dare I say even better than the original? I don't dislike "She's Madonna"; I think it's better than the "Rudebox" single.

    I agree with XO--he'll be back.
