Robbie Williams Has A Weak Excuse For His World Cup Middle Finger

Robbie Williams Has A Weak Excuse For His World Cup Middle Finger
By Eoin Lyons

The opening ceremony of the World Cup in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium featured veteran English popstar Robbie Williams running through a medley of his best songs. The 44-year-old's performance was entertaining for the most part, but viewers at home got a shock when the singer flipped the bird to one of the television cameras pitch side during his act.

Today Williams made an appearance on This Morning, and proffered an odd explanation for his indiscretion:

At these things, it's really important not to cause an international incident. And do you know what? I managed it.

There was one minute to kick-off. I was under a lot of pressure because there was one minute left and I didn't know if I could do it in half a minute. So I just did a one minute countdown.

I can't trust me... I don't know what I'm going to do at any time.

The plan was, sing in key, don't fall over. That was the plan and 99 percent of the plan, I pulled off... Nothing actually passes into my head. There's a block between me and sense and something happened and five minutes later I'm like 'Did I just... yeah, I did, didn't I?'

Now I don't know about you guys, but I'm not buying that excuse, my guess is a bit of easy PR for the former Take That singer. Sure look, at least he didn't rip up a picture of the Pope.
