WHY WOULD I WANT TO DO SOMETHING I DID TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO?

The good news: Madonna and Sting duetting on Imagine is off - presumably even Geldof could see that being a hostage to fortune.

The bad news? Sting is going to do Every Breath You Take, only it's going to be subtle, like, using the song to warn politicians that we (the world) will be watching them (the politicians). And to help get the point home, they're going to have Spitting Image puppets of world leaders dancing about.

If all this sounds vaguely familiar, it'll be because this is exactly the same thing Sting did over the closing credits of a series of Spitting Image so long ago it had Aayatollah Khommeni in it. It's unclear if Sting is doing this deliberately to make people feel like the last two decades haven't happened, or because he hopes nobody will remember, or - more likely - he simply can't be arsed to come up with something new.
