3. Did You Know That Sting Used To Be A Teacher?

4. Sting’s Kids Are As Every Bit Of Creative Artists As Him
“My generation all assumed we would have a better standard of living. The one that we spawned cannot assume that,” the legend once explained to Daily Mail. “With my children there is great wealth, success — a great shadow over them — so it’s no picnic at all being my child. I discuss that with them; it’s tough for them.”
5. Sting Rejects The Idea Of A Biopic
When asked about the idea of a biopic film during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sting replied, “Absolutely not. I just don’t think I want to. I’m telling my story in an artistic way. [The Last Ship] is a metaphor. This is a story about me. I’m in this play in many ways—probably more than I intended to. But the character I’m playing is built on composites of people like my father, uncles, people I was brought up with. That’s the way I want to do it, rather than somebody going, “What’s the arc of Sting’s life?” I haven’t finished it yet.”
