AMAZON RAIN FOREST – Pop singer, bass player and actor Sting has sold his own children into slavery in order to highlight the plight of child poverty in the world.
Sting told Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
Of course, they weren’t initially enthusiastic about the idea, but it is really important for me that they don’t grow up assuming that they have it all just because their father had the good sense to corner the market in soporific rock.
Sting’s children – who are all adults – are now currently working across the globe in various capacities described variously as degrading, humiliating and dangerous. Sting justified his decision against many critics:
Many people are too dismissive of slavery, but now they’ll think, ‘well, if they could happen to Sting’s children… Jesus.’ Plus I got a really good price for them.
Sting’s new album The Color of my Children’s Tears is available from iTunes.
