The Cure frontman went viral for his lukewarm reception to a very peppy red carpet host at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Robert Smith has gone viral after his very honest response to a red carpet host at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
When the Friday I'm In Love rockers came to the red carpet, an enthusiastic red carpet interviewer named Carrie Keagan said: "Congratulations The Cure Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees 2019, are you as excited as I am?"
Unfortunately Robert Smith didn't quite share the fan's glee and replied: "Umm, by the sounds of it, no."

Smith's response had everyone talking about it including Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, who wrote on Twitter: "HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Robert rules!!!!!"
However, interviewer Keegan clearly saw the funny side and responded: "He is everything my lil black heart hoped he’d be. Wait til you see his acceptance speech!! Congratulations on The Dirt, Tommy!"
