    Yeah they blocked LOUD from #1 in the UK from November till January. It was disguting. Rihanna won in the end though.

    Post ''Rudebox'' Robbie was bloated for a few years.
    well, he was in rehab in basically all of 2007. Then went on to become an ALIEN hunter in 2008.. until he returned in 2009 looking absolutely amazing again - and sane.

    Iíve always found Mark really cute.

    Actually none of them are unattractive imo, probably one of the best looking groups as a whole.

    Re: The Random Thought Thread

    lemme rank TT members by looks:

    1. Robbie Williams
    2. Gary Barlow
    3. Howard Donald
    4. Jason Orange
    5. Mark Owen

    I've never found Mark cute or attractive.

    I agree... But in the early TT years he truly wasn't. I hated that hair do.

    Gary became super hot in 1995-1996 and then again post 2005. RW in the Could it be Magic video was everything.

    Make Me Pure Robbie is my fave look of his. (2004-2005)



    between 1999-2010 he was the most beautiful human male who has ever live for me. Today he still gets my pants flying, don't get me wrong. He is my husband afterall.

    During the 90s, I think Markie was the cute one. Now the best looking one is probably Jason.

    .- Mark: played guitar / also 2nd songwriter

    the only useless one was Robbie, but he was the good looking one and learned to play guitar after he left the group and has become the primary songwriter of his solo material.
    where??? Daddy Gary always was the hottest and best looking out of them. Ratbbie was always a smelly rat.

    Madonna's debut album sounds dates as hell, though. If she was debuting today, she would probably have a Migos feature and a Calvin Harris-featured lead single.

    Some artists are lucky that they debuted when they did.

    It was a genius plan really. Ugh hate to admit it but their minds>>>>
    As a Rock fan I would agree on labelling The Beatles Pop or Pop/Rock . . . . they do have some less known songs or album tracks that are more rock but overall they were Pop/rock to me.

    I don't agree with the "Boyband" term tho . . . because unlike boybands, all of the Beatles members played their instruments, John was the lead vocalist, Paul was the bass guitarrist, George was the lead guitarrist and Ringo played drums . . . . they were an actual music band who got together to create their music and each member had a musical function in the band.

    Boybands are just 5 losers who can't do anything as a genuine band, they don't play instruments, they are just put together by some marketing freak and forced to sing songs they hate, and members only sing they don't have like a real function role in the "band" rather than singing which is quite stupid and unnecessary.
    yeah, but even in the 1990s Take That were labelled a boyband when:
