I’ve always liked Robbie Williams, but sometimes he flip flops on his opinions. Not too long he talked to the media about how excited he was to raise a daughter in Los Angeles and is now pretty much saying that he’d rather send her off to space than to school with a 90210 zip code.
The British pop singer, who just welcomed a baby girl to the world with his wife Ayda Fields, Theodora Rose (LOVE the name!), says that he wants to raise his baby girl in England as he has some rather choice words for the Los Angeles-area school system. Here’s what he says:
‘I don’t want to educate our baby in LA because I would much prefer her to have English sensibilities.’
‘They are idiots in L.A. schools. They are f***ing idiots. They are a breed of idiots that only exist in Los Angeles and she would be surrounded by them. It’s not like one or two either. It’s not like the ‘Big Brother’ house, where you pick the worst ones.
‘I think kids there have a massive sense of entitlement, are dull and dumb. It means me coming back to the UK for good but I can live with that. It’s worth being pestered for her to have a good school.
‘I want the baby to have an English passport, we’re still figuring out exactly whereabouts the baby is going to be brought up.
‘I had a conversation with the wife last night about where we’re going to end up but we still don’t know.’
In one way, I totally understand where Robbie is coming from. The L.A. crowd is rather eccentric, isn’t it? And plus, kids with English accents that eat crumpets with their afternoon tea are way cooler. Just ask Apple Martin.
