Life in Pictures: Sting, on Broadway for the First Time in 20 Years

14 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Well, we opened in October,” says Sting, 63, about The Last Ship, the musical he co-wrote and, through January 24, will star in. “And like most of the new musicals on Broadway, we were struggling with ticket sales. And very quickly the producers came to me and said, ‘There’s one thing to do.’ And I said, ‘What’s that?’ ‘You have to go into the play.’ I said no way — I don’t want to. I wrote this for my dear friend Jimmy Nail. ‘Nope, you’ve gotta do it.’ I said they had to ask Jimmy, and Jimmy was wonderfully magnanimous and said, ‘Yep, it’s the right thing to do.’ ‘Well, okay.’ ” *This article appears in the December 15, 2014 issue of New York Magazine. »

Hoping to boost a floundering box office, Sting is going to step into a role in the $15 million Broadway show for which he's supplied the score, The Last Ship.

"I know all the lines and lyrics after all these years," he added with a laugh. »

Pop Idol: Zoe Birkett, Rik Waller - where are they now?

16 July 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We're not going to lie - when we found out that Zoe Birkett was entering the Big Brother house earlier this week, the Digital Spy office got very excited indeed. What a blast from the past - and how much the "little podgy kid from Pop Idol with the dreadlocks" (her words, not ours) has grown up in the last 13 years. But it got us thinking - what happened to the other contestants? We put on our deerstalker, pulled out our magnifying glass and started digging...

Korben

Korben, whose real name is Chris Niblett, now seems to be going by the hybrid Korben Niblett. He previously worked at Jemma Kidd Make Up School, but according to his LinkedIn page (oh yes), earlier this year he launched his own company, Evolve Beauty. Not so much of the singing anymore, then...
