Sting has accused British TV talent contests Pop Idol and X Factor of destroying the UK music scene. The star confesses he’s so bored by contemporary music, he can’t name any of today’s leading artists and refuses to buy any of their albums. He complained: “I have no idea who the young British hopefuls of the music world are. I can’t even remember the last CD I bought. I refuse to watch Pop Idol, The X Factor or any of those programmes, and I have no idea what they think they’re contributing to our musical culture.”
