Annie Lennox on celebrity activism

Advertisement

Annie Lennox is the most successful female recording artist ever to come out of the UK. But she has never fitted the pop star stereotype, often shunning the media spotlight.

Instead she has used her fame to promote the causes she believes in, such as HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. But is it a trade off that works?

Annie Lennox talks to Stephen Sackur.

You can watch the full interview on Thursday 12 August 2010 on BBC World News at 0330, 0830, 1530, 1930 GMT and on the BBC News Channel at 0230 and 0430 BST.

This programme was first broadcast on Wednesday 24 March 2010.
