Robbie Williams in his usual deadpan taking-the-piss-out-of-folks way has revealed publicly that he not only believes in extraterrestrial life but that he has seen UFOs on three separate occasions with his own eyes. Even better than that, he claims, he plans on studying the existence of life on other planets once he retires from making music:

It may seem a bit out of this world, but pop sensation Robbie Williams has revealed his next career move - he wants to become a qualified Ufologist. The Angels singer claims he has seen UFOs three times and plans to study alien and extra-terrestrial lifeforms once he quits pop music. The 34-year-old also revealed on the Jeremy Kyle show that he believes in ghosts which he said are "from another world." Robbie said his first UFO sighting was when he was a child in Britain while he spotted his second in Beverly Hills. He said the third sighting was just after he had written a song about alien contact. Interviewed on the show by Devon soul sensation Joss Stone, Williams said: "This big ball of gold light turned up. On my life." As for ghost sightings he goes on to say: "People will think I'm mental, which I am."

Now ... it's not usually very difficult to tell when Robbie Williams is joking but the man is very good as masking truth with fiction. I can believe that he could actually entertain the notion of extraterrestrial life really existing in the universe but he loses me when he claims that he plans on using his retirement to study alien life. I can also believe that the man is mental ... but that has nothing at all to do with this latest statement from him. Oh Robbie, you're still a cutie ... crazy or not ... I still <3 you! [Source]

In *somewhat* related news, Pink reader Maureen gave me the head's up that someone gave Pink is the new Blog a shout-out on the moon using Rolling Rock's Moonvertising website HERE. It appears that Ernie from NYC, NY was the culprit responsible for the lurve:

Yeah, there's not really a connection between this and Robbie's crazy UFO sightings revelation but they are both celestial in nature so I figured, what the hell. I think it's incredibly awesome that Ernie would give PITNB a shout on the moon ... and much love to Maureen for letting me know about it :) [Source]
