A 28 year old man from China, who has terminal cancer, wanted to get married before he dies, so he married a doll. According to The Mirror he wanted the big day and a photoshoot, but didn’t want to leave behind a grieving window. His solution was to marry a life-size doll.
Hopefully this will bring him some comfort in his final days.
Ever since I read the story, I have had The Police’s Be My Girl, Sally stuck in my head. If you’ve never heard the song written by Andy Summers, you can hear it below and you will understand why I do.
Sting was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon brought out the Ragtime Girls to sing one of his former band’s biggest songs, Roxanne. Whoever thought the classic song would work in that tempo, but it does.
BTW is just me or does Sting’s stupid bushy beard make him look more bald than he already is?
James Corden flew to NYC to pay tribute to David Letterman and he asked Sting to serenade the now retired talk show host with him. The two of them sat outside The Ed Sullivan Theater while Sting sang The Police’s biggest (and worst hit) Every Breath You Take. As soon as the CBS Late Late Show host started to rap, the singer shut him down. Then when JC started to actually sing the ballad, Sting told him, “It’s not working. It’s too loud. I’m singing the song and you’re doing this dumb thing…Do something but make sure no one hears it. Particularly me.” Finally, the two of them harmonized the chorus together. Then it was time for the Corden to go and he left Sting a tip. A whole $1. So now we know what the C stands for in CBS, Cheap! The BS, we already knew…
I don’t know what I appreciated most about this video, (what I am presuming to be) Stings true colors showing through or the fact that someone put Corden in his place and let him know the bits are not only about him. Hmmmm!
Even though Sting was a d!ck to him, Justin Bieber was much nicer to him when they did Carpool Karaoke. Even though this bit went on 5 minutes too long, it was his best one of the series.
Sting tried his hands at Broadway with The Last Ship, and all the musical he composed saw was rough seas. They seemed to hit calmer waters when the Police man took over as Captain in December, but the ocean was still shark infested. So come January 24th, the curtain will come down on the show less than three months after it went up.
Proving that Sting should stick to singing because his acting has never done him any good. See Brimestone and Treacle. Actually don’t, I am still scarred from his sex scene in the film with a woman, who suffered a major brain injury, after all of these years.
Sting attended Don’t Quit Your Night Job in NYC the other night and he sang a version of Every Breath You Take that was specially made for the show. They have a part of the live late night variety show that is called Musical Madlibs, where the audience submits words to fill in the blanks. This time it was The Police’s biggest hit and Gordon Sumners added their words to his infamous lyrics. What we got is a much better version of the overplayed ballad. So sit back and hear the best selling song of 1983 sung like it has never been sung before and will never be sung like that again. Which is shame because I love it so much more, but then again I always hated that song.
BTW it is nice to see Sting humbled enough to finally make fun of himself. I guess having a failed Broadway show can do that to a man who will do anything (including star in it) to make it a hit.
