Paul Weller spits on portait of Sting at Cancer benefit

Posted March 30th, 2007 by eric

Apparently, I had Paul Weller all wrong. He hasn’t lost his edge, despite years of boring, watered down soul records. At the Teenage Cancer Trust concert on March 28th, Weller saw a portrait of Sting hanging in the corridor at Royal Albert Hall in London and decided to spit on it. Accoring to NME, he took his time coughing up as much phlegm as he could muster, spat it out onto Sting’s head, and muttered: “fucking twat” as he walked away. Very classy behavior at a benefit from Mr. Weller. And unprovoked at that. What would he have done had Sting actually been there in person? Well, Weller’s opinion of Sting is no secret: “He’s a fucking horrible man. Not my cup of tea at all. Fucking rubbish. No edge, no attitude, no nothing.” If only all this pent up anger could muster its way into a record by Weller, he might not be such a bore himself when he’s not slagging off his peers.
