Robbie Williams Saves The Day In Candy Video!! WATCH HERE!!

Oh Robbie, you protect those superficial, apathetic Candy youths like a pink-suited BOSS!

British bad-boy pop star and HUNKY new daddy Robbie Williams just debuted the video for latest single Candy

And dude gets punched, stabbed, smooshed by a car, blown up… all to shield a rather vacant looking Kaya Scodelario, who played Effy on UK show Skins!

Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious, super fun video for Candy, off of upcoming album Take The Crown, which slams onto the music scene Nov. 5!

We love this upbeat, thoughtful tune, and can't wait to see what other catchy hits Robbie has in store for our waggling ears!

Original Skins Castmember Slams American Version!

Filed under: TV NewsMTVAnglophiliaTwitter

We're right there with you, gurl!

The amazing Kaya Scodelario, who portrayed our beloved Effy on the first four seasons of the UK series Skins, apparently managed to catch Monday's premiere of the US remake on MTV, and took to Twitter to address some 'concerns' she had about the direction it took!

She wrote:

Hi every1.Still on holiday with the girls in beautiful jamaica!We watched the American skinsNa mate! Brits did it better…

Can't believe it was bleeped!That's not what skins is about.And making effy blonde? WTF!but good luck 2 them anyway,not about being a hater.

But I did quite like the us shameless

Ha! Agreed!

Shameless has certainly been done right - because it's on SHOWTIME and doesn't have to be censored - and also because it's not afraid to be different from its predecessor!

The US Skins is like going back to your hometown and catching up with old friends. It's essentially the same, but everyone is slightly off, and annoying enough to make you wonder why you liked them in the first place.

Take it from the original Effy, guys! You're missing the point of the show, so before it's too late, we'd suggest thinking about what YOU'RE trying to accomplish with it, instead of being married to a concept that doesn't translate culturally to the states!

Thoughts??

YES! Skins Film In The Works!

This is seriously exciting news!

Despite the US attempting to bastardize adapt the original, the BRILLIANT UK teen drama Skins is getting a full-length feature film, set for a summer 2011 release!

Steve Christian, one of the film's producers, said in a statement:

"The biggest critics of Skins are the Skins fans so it's going to be a big challenge. The programme has this incredible fanbase despite all the characters changing. Skins has grown in popularity with more than 1.5 million people tuning in to the start of the recent fourth series. Although its target audience is teenagers, it has become something of a guilty pleasure for curious viewers far older. Look, I'm a middled aged bloke with two kids, I should hate Skins but I absolutely love it. And then I talk to my mates, people not in the film industry, and it's the same thing - they watch it and they love it and it's all down to the quality of the production. Turning TV shows into films doesn't happen so much these days, probably because there's not the material out there. But what we don't want to do is to make a 90 minute episode of Skins. It would be a complete disaster."

The controversial series follows a different group of British teenagers every two seasons as they attempt to come into their own, juggle relationships, and experiment with drugs and sexuality! We personally think it's one of the most brutally honest and poignant depictions of adolescence that we've ever seen!

Christian confirms that staff writer Jack Thorne will be handling the screenplay, and Charles Martin will direct. We're also THRILLED to hear that some of the original characters will be back, on top of the just-wrapped second generation kids and brand new faces!

YES! YES! We love them all, but we hope they bring back Maxxie and our beloved Cassie! That girl brings the hot mess like NO OTHER! Well, except maybe Effy!

We hope that this, as well as the UK's fifth season, will rectify any damage that the most likely shiteous American version will do!

What do U think?? Who do U want to see return for the Skins movie??
