London: Robbie Williams has revealed that after three of his solo albums – ‘Intensive Care,’ ‘Rudebox’ and ‘Reality Killed the Video Star’ flopped, he felt “lethargic” and wanted to go in a new direction.

The 38-year-old singer said that he started painting and wanted to become a serious artist.

“Unfortunately I’m an awful painter. And I’m not good at making radical decisions. Otherwise I would’ve called it a day,” the sun quoted him as saying.

“Mentally, I had already waved my career goodbye. I just felt incredibly lethargic and like I couldn’t live up to the requirements of being a pop star,” he added.
