Williams considers himself national treasure

London, Nov 19 (IANS) Singer Robbie Williams says he has all the reason to call himself a national treasure.

"Do I think I'm a national treasure? I don't see why not? I don't see why I shouldn't be. I'm a good lad really," thesun.co.uk quoted Williams as saying.

"I have a gigantic ego and need to be at the top of the pile and be doing amazingly well. Also, at the same time, I'm just pleased to be anywhere," he added.

However, Williams, 38 is aware about the presence of some people who don't like his work.

"I think that a lot of people don't like my brand of whatever I do. I am the quintessential boy next door, I feel that way," he said.

Recently singer Gary Barlow was called a national treasure by Prince Charles during an award ceremony.
