Robbie Williams was notorious for his wild partying style back in the day and at one stage, was even friendly with the Gallagher brothers, Noel and Liam, who wouldn't be ones for putting their heads down and getting some shut eye before 10pm. 

This story might be his most weirdest of all time though. 

The Take That singer revealed a rather bizarre tale to The Irish Independent about an event that took place years ago including him, Bono and some magic mushrooms. 

"I was in Bono's house years and years ago and I was looking at an amazing painting. I managed to get hold of some mushrooms before I went there. So I wasn't really of the planet at the time.

"But the great and good of the world were there and I just felt like a fish out of water. Primarily because I was on magic mushrooms. 

"I'm in love with Bono. I love him. And I am wandering around his house and I stop and I look, and I realise, Bono has purchased the most beautiful painting that has ever existed, the most beautiful painting known to man.

"And there I am standing, staring at it. In my head, I'm thinking: 'Of course Bono is going to have the most beautiful painting in the world. He deserves it and so he should have it.' 

"And at that moment, Bono appeared. And I said to him, 'Bono - this is the most beautiful painting that I have ever, ever seen.' And Bono said to me: 'Robbie, that's the window.'"

And we're sure that after that, Robbie was looking for the exit.
