Speaking to The Sun newspaper about a reunion, he said: ''I haven't gone back, this is part of my musical life. I play rock 'n' roll every night of my working life so It's not like I am going to return and be just like The Police. I am the f***ing Police.''

Tom Hanks Gets Top American Honour For His Extensive Acting Catalogue


Tom Hanks Al Green Sting Lily Tomlin

Tom Hanks is a mammoth actor who has delighted fans with extraordinary performances for just short of 40 years. He started his career by providing us with some delightfully 80s classics in the era of big hair and bright colours with greats such as Splash, Big and Turner & Hooch. In the 90s he gave us a cacophony of feel-good flicks including Sleepless in Seattle, Forrest Gump and the first of one of the most successful trilogies of all time, Toy Story.

"Earn Your Own Money" Sting Denies Children His Fortune


Sting

Sting doesn't want his children to inherit his £180m fortune so that they can earn their own way in the world. The British rocker revealed his rather divisive plans in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, making it clear that his six children haven't had and won't have an easy ride and will have to stand on their own two feet.

The 62 year-old former Police star, who is one of Britain's wealthiest musicians, has revealed that he places an emphasis on encouraging his children "to succeed on their own merit" which they are happy to do. What's more, Sting claims that his fortune is depleting because of hefty outgoings.

He said: "I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate."

Sting is no pushover.

The 62 year-old music star recently revealed that none of his £180 million fortune will be left to his children.

Tony Awards 2014: So How Did Hugh Jackman Do?


Hugh Jackman Clint Eastwood Sting

Not only are the Tonys hilarious, entertaining… glittery, etc. – they’re also pretty democratic. In an over-the top show hosted by Hugh Jackman, top prizes went to A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, as well as competitors Robert Schenkkan’s All the Way for best play, to Hedwig and the Angry Inch for best musical revival, and to A Raisin in the Sun for best play revival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hugh Jackman
Ten years after his first time hoSting, Jackman has gotten even better.

As for Hugh Jackman, who hosted the musical theatre awards for the first time in a decade, the Wolverine star did not disappoint. Jackman gave it his all straight from the opening sequence, which to be fair, is often the centerpiece of the show. That Wolverine training must have come in handy, as Jackman  he hopped his way through the theater and backstage, down the aisles and into an elevator before making his way to the main stage for the show's opening.

20 Feet From Stardom Review


Extraordinary

Entertaining and uplifting, this Oscar-winning documentary tells the unknown story of the back-up singers who made classic records so memorable. Packed with lively, engaging people and fantastic music, the film also offers a sharp look at the music industry over the past 60 years in parallel with the fight for civil rights in America.

In the 1950s, background singers were usually white girls who read sheet-music perfectly. But they were quickly replaced with black artists who learned their craft in churches and could improvise harmonies with the lead singers. Suddenly, pop songs were infused with passion and life, as a handful of unknown singers performed backing vocals on virtually every classic hit since then. With their powerhouse voices and larger-than-life personalities, most have also tried to find success as solo artists. Others prefer to stay in the shadows.

For example, even though established stars acknowledge that she has more talent than any of them, Lisa Fischer prefers the quiet life out of the spotlight. Other belters like Merry Clayton, Tata Vega and Claudia Lennear can be heard on hundreds of timeless classics and are known throughout the industry, but never managed to get their solo careers off the ground. Judith Hill is a young artist who does soaring backing work while waiting for her own music to take off. And Darlene Love is the exception who managed both long background and solo careers.
