Robbie Williams did not immediately recognize singer Barbra Streisand during a vacation meeting. The singer had no idea who she was and thought she was a “nice old lady”. This was revealed on Sunday in an interview on BBC Radio 5.

The 48-year-old said, “Hi Barbara, nice to meet you. I thought it was a nice old woman. Then I sat down next to her and it turned out to be Barbra Streisand. Then I suddenly realized it.” Williams.
But when I realize who you are, it turns out that there is no acknowledgment of the opposite. According to Williams, the 80-year-old singer thought he was a soccer player because he got involved in Soccer Aid. This is an annual charity football game created by Williams.
“People were talking about Soccer Aid and I just assumed I was playing soccer,” the singer says. “Then I quickly told her I was a singer. She said she liked it.”
Streisand has won several Oscars and Grammy Awards in her career. Williams became world famous with the music group Take That and as a solo artist, he recorded hits like Angels And the Let me entertain you. His new album will be released next month.
