Robbie Williams bravely admits to soiling himself on stage during Take That concert

Robbie Williams boldly made it clear on Tuesday that he had soiled himself in public.

The ‘Let Me Entertain You’ singer was performing with his former band Take That at a reunion show in 2011 when food poisoning set in that ‘felt like death’ – and the Amsterdam crowd at Ajax watched unknowingly how he defecated in his pants.

“Still not nearly good enough, I ventured onto the stage” Williams wrote on Instagram. “I was in the precarious position of not being able to trust a fart. That was unfortunate because that’s exactly what I had to do during my opening song. Let me entertain you.”

“As you can imagine, it wasn’t just a fart,” he continued. “But as a pro, I kept my composure and I was 100% committed to the performance. I’m sure you have questions based on the picture I just painted. But let’s leave the sleeping tree trunks alone for now.”

Williams continued to keep the matter lightly, claiming that “a gig parp” or a live bowel movement “can be liberating sometimes.” He then challenged his 2.8 million followers to think about what their favorite “performing parper” would sing – and started it himself.

“I’ll go first,” Williams wrote. “1.Mick Jagger-Jumping Jack Flash. 2. Thom Yorke.”

While he failed to give the Radiohead frontman a song to “parp,” Instagram users chimed in with their own suggestions. One person envisioned Phil Collins singing “In The Air Tonight” in the midst of a bowel movement, while another person was still rightly shocked by the story: “I was at Ajax and you hugged me!” Little did I know that you’d fuck yourself up!”

Williams began as a solo artist in 1997 after breaking through with Take That from 1990-1995. Despite being the only member to make the above admission, Williams is in high-visibility company — as another boy band singer recently publicly admitted. ”

“Let’s just say it was a bad day choosing to wear white.” The Jonas Brothers’ Joe Jonas revealed this on a recent episode of the Will & Woody podcast. “You think it might have been a bit. It could have been something else – a little something extra.”

Unlike Jonas, however, Williams accompanied his vivid confession by literally painting a picture — and shared the image on his Instagram post with the admittedly encouraging and destigmatizing caption: “Sometimes your favorite performers fart on stage.”
