Is Sting bipolar? Or is that just a rumor?

By October 12, 2012

Follow me on:

From a statement he made in a 1996 interview, the actor/musician Sting, who was born Gordon Sumner, has been put on list after list of famous people with bipolar disorder. Should he be on those lists? Is he manic-depressive? I've done the research. You decide.

Sting is most likely bipolar considering he wrote “lithium sunset.” Lithium is the most common bipolar med. if he’s not, then he must know someone close to him who is. but as fan listening to his songs and being bipolar, i’d say he is manic depressive. But i could be wrong
