Despite Robbie Williams' departure (again), the English boy band is moving forward.
Take That has been under speculation of an inevitable end with the second exit of Robbie, but their rep confirms they're all simply taking a break.
After doing so many live shows with Robbie aboard, we bet their energy is low! Time to reboot…
On Robbie's leaving, Gary Barlow says:
THIS. LOOKS. EPIC!
Check out a preview of what to expect from Take That's Progress Live Stadium Tour DVD, which the recently-reunited group took to over 1.8 million people and 29 stadiums around the United Kingdom and Ireland, and is set to be released on November 21st (above)!
The scope of this whole thing is UNBELIEVABLE!
And of course, we're just thrilled to see Robbie back with the gang - and singing some of his solo stuff, for good measure!
Gah! We want this NOW!
Let's just make sure it stays like that. We don't want this turning into another 15 year break.
With their latest tour completed and the boys having families and solo careers to get back to, Take That is preparing to go on a bit of a hiatus from the band. Sources tell us that unlike before, this is a mutual decision between all the guys in the band and is not hindered on Robbie Williams desire to go back to his solo career. An insider explains:
He's not alone, but we sure as hell don't share his opinion. The more of these two lovely ladies the better, if you ask us!
Ya'll probably know Gary Barlow best as one of the fellas from Take That, but now, he is also one of the judges on the U.K. version of The X Factor. Considering that the show debuted to 12.6 million audience, we'd say the show is off to a good start, but Gary is hoping to make a change to the songs contestants can select this season. He's looking for a ban of all Adele and Lady GaGa songs from the show's catalogue.
Hear those crickets chirping, Gary? That's the world collectively thinking to themselves, "WTF?!"
As two of the biggest names in the business right now, you would think that Gary would have an appreciation for their music. Sadly, it seems he's grown tired of them and their music and even said so to one of their faces! (Charming.) In a new interview, Gary explained:
It's the Backstreet Boys! No, it's N*Sync!
NO! It's The Keys!
But we sure know who their inspirations are…
X Factor saw their best audition yet with this performance.
These guys can sing, rap, AND they look the part (which is hot)!
Their aspiration is to become as successful as other British boy band, Take That.
We can definitely see that happening if they keep this up! Work it, boyz!
You can't argue that boy isn't keeping himself hella busy!
Despite being only just finished with his Take That tour, Robbie Williams recently took to his blog to reveal that he's back in El Lay, and hard at work on the lyrics for his ninth solo album!
"Lyric progress? I wrote everything I needed to finish - aren't I a good boy? I know I like blanket statements about my music - but this album is by far my most consistent. We have an embarrassment of riches where singles are concerned - happy days. I wrote out my dream set list for a future tour - Exciting. 'Me and my Monkey' hasn't made it I just don't think I can remember the words should I reconsider?"
Ha! We love him!
He's just too funny, no?!
So excited to hear your new material, you rascal!
We can't wait!
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to the latest from Robbie?

Prepare to hear this song a lot. Not only is it Take That's new single, but its also just been picked up as the theme for the new Three Musketeers 3D flick.
Every promo, every commercial - Robbie, Gary Howard, Jason and Mark all up in your ears!
Before it explodes all over the place, check out the video for the song When We Were Young here (above)!
