Sting gets stung

Postby keelio » Mon Feb 22, 2010 11:03 am

This is rich...exceptional back-pedaling, sir! Sting sells his soul, once again, to headline an Uzbecki arts festival and tries to lay the blame on Unicef - deflecting criticism of his big payday.

There's been a trend in recent years for rich Eastern Blocheads to overpay for big-name entertainment for their swanky parties. I seem to remember reading about Amy Winehouse being given a king's ransom for one performance for some Russian oil baron.

The financial aspect of this takes the following thoughts into a different direction, but Sting's at least on somewhat defensible ground as far as his justification for taking the gig in the first place. I'm thinking mostly of the Dalai Lama, who of all people should be in favor of an international boycott of China, and yet takes every opportunity to oppose it.

I hope the Uzbeks love their children too.

At least he's not playing for...peanuts!

Get it? Because 'Peanuts' is the name of one of his songs...
