A big Robert fan sent him a long horoscope which said they belong together according to their readings: “One one occasion I got this really bizarre horoscope thing from someone. It was a full-on zodiac reading, charting and intersecting all this stuff. It was over 20 pages long and said we’re destined to be together. That was totally bizarre.

It was rubbery and you were supposed to fold it up and hold it in your hand, then walk into a party and go, ‘Oh my God, there’s something wrong with my ear!’ and let it unfold.

Cher was at a signing when someone landed her with a very unusual gift: “I was doing a signing and this person came up to me and they had something behind their back.

I felt really bad as I couldn’t go home with it so I gave it to someone who had a pond.”
