SHE'S JUST BEING NICE: Sheryl Crow mealy-mouths that Robbie Williams is "too camp" to be big in the US: "American men don't want to see anything that's burlesque or vaudevillian, they want to feel that their artist is brooding and macho." Yes, that'll be it - it's why Marilyn Manson often finds himself playing gigs in the US where he can see the back of auditorium (if he squints through a telescope) and it also explains the complete failure of REM to sell more than a few hundred million records there. But we suspect Ms Crow is merely trying to salve Robbie's feelings - she could also have thrown in how "Americans don't get irony" and they're used to driving on the other side of the road.
