I hate spiders, I hate roaches and most of all, I hate snakes, said Robbie.
When I see a roach, Ill kill it, I find them so fucking disgusting. But if I see a snake youre gonna see me run, he confessed.
The Puerto Rican born producer is currently based in Barcelona (Spain) after temporarily relocating from Florida last summer where he admitted hed had more than few scares as a result of his phobias.
I used to have a residency in Miami and youd get these idiots going into clubs there with huge snakes around their necks, huge Boa snakes, thinking theyre cool, he recalled.
Its not cool to me at all having those fucking poor snakes there having to cope with all this loud music. Theyre probably just about to bite somebody.
The safety conscious producer also revealed he avoids both Colombia and Israel for the danger factor though admitted hed been blown away by a gig in Beirut earlier this summer.
I know nothing bad has happened in Beirut for the last two years, but its a Middle Eastern country and Im an American, so all my friends in the States were like youre fucking crazy playing there, he recalled.
But was amazing and totally, normal, Im dying to go back there.
