Robbie Williams reacts to Nick Grimshaw: Radio 1 better not play Madonna

By
Robbie Williams has said that he does not mind about Nick Grimshaw calling him irrelevant.

The new Radio 1 Breakfast Show host played Williams's chart-topping single 'Candy' but claimed that "to 13 and 14-year-olds he's not relevant".

Williams told Metro: "It's not really about having the last laugh. Radio 1 goes through the government.

"The government's given them a remit to appeal to 17- to 24-year-olds, obviously I don't fit in to that and that's okay."

He added: "They've got a job to do and a business to look after and they've always been incredibly supportive of me and for that I thank them very, very much.

"If they never play a record of mine again, I thank them for the support they have given me and, if they do, then bless them too."

He then quipped: "Nothing's personal, it's not a vendetta against Robbie Williams but they better not play Coldplay or Madonna or I'll break their legs."
