Not quite, Bob.
Like Bono and U2 before him, Bob Geldolf hasn't quite got the hang of iTunes. Hoping to raise some more money for the Band Aid cause, he said, "Even if you already have it, delete, download again."
Nearly there, Bob.
His comment came from his worry that the current single won't raise as much money as the 1984 original. He said, "In 1984 a single was £3.50, today it's 99p. That worries me..." 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' currently sits at number one in the UK charts.
The single 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' has been gaining criticism in recent days, with claims it has a negative portrayal of Africa. Emeli Sandé, who appeared on the single, has since apologised for her involvement and said that a whole new song would be required in future.
Lily Allen did not get involved in the single, and told the Mail: "I prefer to do my charitable bit by donating actual money and not being lumped in with a bunch of people like that... It’s like the 'success club' and I'm not really in that club. I don't think I'm above it all – I'm way below it. But there’s something a bit smug about it."
