    Can't say I like the interior the way it is. The light in the dining room is far too low for my taste... beggars can't be choosers I guess

    I still can't believe he is with his wife. He either really loves her, or they have an open marriage.

    The view is breathtaking.
    I'm not sure it was worth $26 million, but he's probably worth more than dirt, so it doesn't matter.

    He's an asshole. I met him once after a concert when I was a doe-eyed teenager who'd just seen him a few weeks earlier on Donahue talking about his trip to the rainforest. When we saw him after the show, I asked him how things were going in the rainforest and he said: "How the hell should I bloody know?"

    My young-girl heart was shattered about how celebrities use causes for their own selfish and self-promoting bullshit!!! How many trees died in the rainforest to make the furniture in your opulent house you PRICK!!!

    WORD. Rules always apply to everyone else but them, it's like the Bono dude pontificating about nations forgiving debt, blah blah blah yet spending 20 plus million on a home (when he already has like, five others around the world). Hey Boner, that money could have fed hundreds of thousands of Africans, or built them hospitals, etc.

    I used to see him a lot when I was a young kid. My dad was partners with Ian Copeland -brother of Stewart-in a record label and the Police were one of the first acts they had. He always was the dick of the band, but he's only gotten worse as the years roll on. I haven't seen him in about 10 years, but I doubt he's gotten any better. He was ok to me as a child, but Stewart and Andy Summers always were much nicer.



    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    The top one! I bungee jump to my office three floors below. Lunch is sent up (linen napkins of course).

    Ya think Sting will wear his yoga pants in the elevator?

    What's up with Trudie's chest? Bra? Implants? Tape inside the dress?
    They look like two tiny scoops of melting ice cream.

    Wow, what an amazing past you have--bet there are a lot of stories with you and your dad. Hard to believe dickwad was ever a schoolteacher.

    I had a feeling he is a total jerkoff, but stories like that piss me off.
