Bono says Catholic guilt makes him help poor
    U2 singer Bono says his Catholic guilt keeps him working on behalf of the world's poor.
    Speaking in Brazil, he said: "One thing I'm very sure about is that I am a spoiled rock star; I am overpaid, overnourished and overdressed.
    "And I'm sure the work that I do at Jubilee 2000 and the work the band has done for Amnesty International is some kind of Catholic guilt, but it's working, so we'll continue with it."
    Bono has spent the past several years lobbying world governments to pardon the poorest nations' debts as part of a campaign by Jubilee 2000, a coalition of religious organisations.
    U2 are in Brazil for a four-day visit to promote their new album All That You Can't Leave Behind.
