Sting and Gaga unite to inspire hope, in this performance to save the “rain forests” of the world. Love them.
Although I’d like to think that Lady Gaga and Sting are singing this song in the spirit of, “I’ll stand by you, if you stand by me, to save that tree in that rain forest, so that it’s still there in the next fifty or a hundred years”… I really think they’re singing about something entirely different. :)

Don’t Stop Believing is the message from Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John performing live together at the Rainforest Event. Amazing!
Shirley Bassey, Deborah Harry and the one and only Bruce Springsteen were all on deck too. And Sting decided to bring on the lol’s by dressing in drag while Goldie Hawn‘s daughter, Kate Hudson joined in on the sing-a-long.
Seriously though–no matter what your dream is…. Don’t Stop Believing. :)

After grumping last week in the UK press about Simon Cowell churning out karaoke singers with his glut of talent shows, Sting, took his grumpy *ss to Rio for a bit of beach, fun, sun and cheering up.
Good to see!

Talking to People Magazine, here’s what pop star Sting has to say about Simon Cowell‘s X Factor talent show in the UK.
Says Sting: “It’s a preposterous show, and you have judges who have no recognizable talent apart from self-promotion… Basically I was looking at televised karaoke where they conform to stereotypes. It is a soap opera which has nothing to do with music.”
Nga Whetu means ‘stars’ in the Maori language of New Zealand. By stars at night, the Polynesian Maori people navigated their way over vast ocean waters in the Pacific to find their homeland by way of the skies. Likewise, stars have something bright and endearing about them that strike up something inspiring in the consciousness of the masses. In this Whetu profile we look at the rock group, The Police who were ranked #8 in the Celebrity Top 100 last year. Why do they still fascinate people? Here’s why….

The late-1970s rock band, famous for not getting along, reunited at the 2007 Grammys performing its hit “Roxanne.” The Sting-fronted group then set off on a world tour, selling out stadiums and arenas on five continents. They sold $200 million worth of tickets and played to 4 million fans. Burying feuds when there’s money to be made, or a world to inspire and save is always a smart thing to do.
Props to the Police for being able to achieve that in 2007/08 and proving they are super rockers who are ageless, timeless an still relevant voices in the world of entertainment. Sting of course, sung for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on Inaugural night. Coming out of retirement for US$33.3 mil each is not a bad incentive to get along! Nice job fellas.
Special shout out to Derek Power (& Ilene Kahn) for managing these guys USA & Canadian affairs. Together Everyone Achieves More & You both rock too. Hi! :)
They were there performing 19 years ago, when the Berlin wall came down, and they are here to rebuild America to with their music and spirit of enduring during change. Here’s U2 doing The Top 10 on Letterman, and they still have a Sting.
