I fucking hate Robert Smith.

What was he thinking going to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame if he was going to act like the teenager he still clearly wants to be?

Even Tom "Thom" Yorke came up with an excuse ("I've got a gig a week away and there's no way to get to France from America in that time soz") to not go.

Anyway, I know you all love the Cure but I just had to tell you that you're wrong and I will not be entering into correspondence.

DELETE THREAD.

What did he say? I can only find videos of this incident with captions like 'You won't BELIEVE what Robert Smith of the Cure said to this interviewer in this deadpan viral video!!"and I can't watch them at work.

Presenter, virtually bouncing up and down with joy and excitement: "Are you as excited as I am?!"

Fat Bob: "erm... by the sound of it, no."



Which, to be fair, doesn't quite mean he's not pleased to be there. But Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is not something I can even pretend to understand.

Have a look at Rolling Stone’s Top 100 lists or Q magazine to see how beige people view music. Elitist, establishment, status quo, Status Quo

I thought it was funny as fuck!

It seemed like he was more bemused at how incredibly excited the presenter was, rather than poo-pooing the award itself.

Robert Smith is cool.
And fat.
And depressed.

It was just a deadpan joke, he seemed a bit bemused but he was polite for the rest of the conversation. I just hope people aren't dogpiling that presenter on twitter or anything.

I remember Fat Bob's band played on Dom Joly's awful BBC3 chat show, Joly tried to get him to do a "bit" and Bob was like "Nah, not really arsed mate." Good on him.

The most hilarious thing anyone's ever said to an interviewer ever. Apparently.

The interviewer's gushing is as effective as deadpan, since her autopilot enthusiasm is wholly faked and isn't costing her a dime of true effort.  She clearly doesn't give an airborne shit about the Cure (and some would say - the first three or four albums notwithstanding - rightly so).  Good on her for rightly sussing that a proper dose of red-carpet OMGness would irk the pudgy, kohl-daubed cobweb.

The only two of theirs that were any good were Catch, and Pictures of You, but they were very good.

A friend has just asked what everyone's reaction would've been had it been Kanye West instead of Legend Bobby chatting shit to the interviewer.

In Your House, Primary, All Cats Are Grey, A Short Term Effect.  Bits of Carnage Visors.  The culmination of A Forest is lovely of course, but the build-up sorely tests the patience.

The Walk, Lullaby, Lovesong, Fascination Street, Harold and Joe, Why Can't I Be You, Hot Hot Hot, A Forest.
