Honestly, Gary Barlow is one of the best ppl in the world. He’s my fave! Who is he? If you don’t know, why am I friends with you? He’s the lead singer from Take That; the boybander with lasting power; the super hot, fabulous Englishman that I have to meet and drink tea with once I go to Manchester.
Our paths crossed about 10 years ago, and I’ve been smitten ever since. He’s the only person I’ve ever proposed to in a love letter…. (I was only 14 but I meant it!) He’s sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fabulous! And why the gush now?
Well, it’s been over 10 years since the evil Robbie Williams broke up my band and hurt Gary (I hate RW: there it’s public) and last year, Take That had a reunion tour and made a very successful comeback sans evil man, who really is so overrated and will never make it in North America ok?
So in the past 10 years, I haven’t been up-to-date with Gary’s whereabouts. I know he writes for other singers and is a producer, I think, but I’ve actually grown up and done things myself.
From 15-25, he was discovered, traveled the world, became famous, had his band break up, went solo, got married and lived on. But now at 36, his voice hasn’t changed much and it’s just so excellent and “Back for Good” is still often played on radio stations around the world.
From 15-25, I had over 10 jobs, visited over 10 countries, lived abroad twice, learned two languages, and am finally settling down although nowhere near my hometown. Granted, I’m not a celebrity, but I think I’ve done pretty well so far…and after all those years, I still LOVE GB! He’s the best!!!!!
(Once I get back to Canada, I will post some pics.)
