BBC Apologized to Bob Geldof Over Wrong TV News


November 04, 2010 09:09:02 GMT


BBC bosses have apologized to Bob Geldof over a televised report suggesting money raised by the rocker's 1985 Live Aid concerts was spent on weapons for Ethiopia's rebel army. The former Boomtown Rats star was horrified to discover a BBC programme broadcast in the U.K. in March reported the $240 million raised by the gigs and the Band Aid record was divided up by rebel army leader Meles Zenawi - who is now Ethiopia's prime minister - and used to arm militants in the country.

The rocker furiously denied the claims and filed an official complaint, and after a lengthy probe, BBC bosses ruled they had no evidence to back up the report and the show should never have been broadcast. A statement from the network's spokesperson says, "The BBC accepts we should have been more explicit in making it clear that the allegations did not relate specifically to Band Aid. We are looking at lessons that can be learnt."

Robert Downey Jr.: Prison Didn't Cure My Addiction

November 04, 2010 03:57:10 GMT


Robert Downey Jr. is adamant his stint behind bars didn't help to sort his life out, insisting his prison time "neither fazed me, nor changed me, nor informed me". The "Iron Man" star was sent to jail in 1997 following several run-ins with the law over his drug addiction. He was later given a three-year stint in 1999 and was freed after 12 months when a judge granted him early release.

But the star is adamant his subsequent sobriety and career resurgence has nothing to do with being locked up - likening the experience to working on location or attending school. He tells Britain's GQ magazine, "I do think there's something divine about large-scale humiliation, but no, it never worked for me."
