Robbie Williams claims he was ''looked down on'' by indie fans when he went to Glastonbury.

The 42-year-old singer attended the world famous music festival in 1995 - days before quitting Take That - and was pictured partying with Oasis, which did not go down with a lot of festival goers.

He told the Guardian newspaper: ''There was a sort of indie fundamentalist mentality that was with us all the way through the 90s that was very apparent to me, where I was literally looked down on when I was in conversation with a lot of people in various drinking establishments. It was like people were scared that it was going to rub off on them; the Butlins redcoat or the Pontins bluecoat thing.''

And the 'Party Like A Russian' hitmaker says times have changed and pop stars are a lot more accepted in taht circle now.

He added: ''We live in a very different world than we used to. I don't think someone who'd left a pop band would feel the same way now. You know, one of One Direction being seen walking around Glastonbury isn't the same as me walking around Glastonbury in 1995.

''When I was at Glastonbury it felt like the rest of the festival was like: 'What the f**k are you doing here, you ****? And I sort of wanted to be OK with the big boys, I wanted to be accepted, there's a playground mentality that carries on through life and at that time, I wanted to be accepted by the bullies, and that became part of the very fabric of my DNA: 'Oh, I'll be accepted by these people eventually, right, here's my new album. Oh, they're not accepting me, they're not coming.'''
