Robbie will light up China
This story will warm your cockles on a cold, miserable day:
Leftover copies of Robbie's Rudebox album will be recycled as street lamps and tarmac in China.
After the ill-deserved adulation he's received over the years we're pleased to see his albums subjected to all the things we've ever dreamt of: being melted down, then smeared in dog shit, stamped on, and having chewing gum trodden into them.
You can imagine Robbie reading this as he downs his 36th espresso of the day and quietly weeps.
The best thing is that this story actually comes from his own record label - they must be really pissed off about his supposed strike action (laziness).
