What Sting did not hit the magazine Blender? "The incredible pomposity and annoying spirituality ..."

October 10 2007

"The incredible pomposity and annoying spirituality. He may soon "- reads the epigraph to the article about Sting, who topped the rating of the worst rock poets according to Blender magazine .

This is not the only charges against Sting. Blender also spoke about copying them to Chaucer, Shakespeare and the confessions of St. Augustine, recalls how he mentioned by Nabokov in his song «don't stand so close to me» and grins Spanish curses against Augusto Pinochet. "Lyrics by Sting went to the Prophet" - concludes the magazine.

Victim of poetry critics was not the only one Sting. Paul Stanley, Jim Morrison, Tom Marshall, Fred Durst, Robert Ryan, Jon Bon Jovi - Only four dozen illustrious names adorn the shit - the parade. Each of these individual sins and prescribed a detailed separation stihotvorchestva.

Judge for the English-language edition of Blender here is difficult, but the scandal came out excellent. Russian and Western media are trumpeting this on all of the votes. Shit - parades in general often attract attention. And the degree of attention here depends on the number of world famous names in the first line.
